You are not the best politician in Nigeria – Okowa attacks Tinubu

People’s Democratic Party, PDP Vice Presidential Candidate Ifeanyi Okowa has tackled All Progressives Congress, APC Presidential Candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his attack on PDP Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar .

Atiku’s running mate Abubakar told Tinubu that he is not the best political figure in Nigeria.

The Delta State Governor said this in reaction to Tinubu’s comment that his running mate Senator Kashim Shettima was better.

Spokeswoman for Delta State Governor Olisa Ifeajika, via a statement, advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate to quit the smear campaign.

The Delta politician advised the former Governor of Lagos State to check his political, legislative and governance record.

The Delta State Citizen Number recalled the interview where Atiku reiterated that the APC leader wanted to be his running mate in 2007.

He said he expected Tinubu to just answer back rather than shoot him, saying his own running mate was better than Atiku’s.

“We know Senator Bola Tinubu as a good politician and former Governor of Lagos State.

“But we expect him to know that there are other politicians who dominate and are good, patriotic and have tried in their tracks to be statesmen.

“If Tinubu thinks he is good, he shouldn’t rule out that there won’t be other people who are good or even better at politics where he thrives.

“It was his choice to pick his own running mate for whatever criteria he had,” the statement read.

The statement told Tinubu that the National Health Act grew out of Okowa’s efforts when he was in the Senate.

Ifeajika told the APC leader to “face his competition…and quit the campaign of slander”.

“Tinubu should discuss issues affecting the welfare of people, not individuals,” the statement added.
