The presidential candidate of Nigeria main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has made mockery of the health condition of the ruling party presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of All Progressives Congress, APC.

IsL source gathered that through Atiku’s Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, on Monday, Atiku urged Nigerians not to take any presidential candidate whose health is “shrouded in secrecy” seriously.

Atiku made the comment while reacting to a recent comment by Tinubu, who while speaking on Sunday at an interactive session with members of the Tijjaniyyah sect in Kano State where he said he would give 100 percent of his time to Nigerians and would not be a part-time president who stays between Dubai and Nigeria.

Tinubu’s comment was apparently directed at Atiku who has been criticised for spending most of his time in Dubai since 2019 when he lost his presidential bid to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Ibe told IsL source that Tinubu’s comment shouldn’t be taken seriously and that

The president of Nigeria, the most populous country in the black continent, is not for comedians.

“The process of selecting a president is not a jamboree so the earlier the APC puts its house together and starts by having a council in place. They shouldn’t be taken seriously because of their inability to organise.

“Nobody should take the candidate of that party (APC) seriously. No one should take a candidate and a party whose health situation, early school, and early years are all shrouded in secrecy. No one should take such a candidate seriously.”
