The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has been declared unfit to serve as president of Nigeria, according to the presidential campaign organisation of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate and former vice president, Atiku Abubakar.
The campaign team for the former vice president also stated that Tinunu is unwell and lacks the PDP candidate’s level of vigour.
Kola Ologbondiya, one of the campaign’s spokespeople, referred to as absurd Tinubu’s purported failed attempt to cast doubt on Atiku’s excellent character and integrity in a statement released on Wednesday.
The statement read in part:-
“It is imperative to observe that our campaign had focused on issues and refrained from Tinubu’s appalling health issues before this ignoble public dance of the Tinubu/Shettima Campaign.
“However, since Tinubu by himself has opened the channels for Nigerians to examine his ill health, we have no other option than to further expose that the APC Candidate must be suffering from manifest Parkinson’s disease accompanied by incontinence.
“For clarity, Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder which symptoms include shaking hands, stiffness of limbs, difficulty with coordination, problem with balance when walking; articulation disorder, memory problems as well as general mental and physical weakness which are all being witnessed in the APC Presidential Candidate.
“This perhaps accounts for the desperation, the endless gaffes, the articulation errors, the incoherence, the many blunders and disconnection from reality for which Asiwaju Tinubu has become the butt of weird jokes among Nigerians and internationally.
“It is rather unfortunate that the APC Presidential Candidate, who cannot stand erect or walk up an elevation unaided, who is plagued by visible tremor of the hands, who palpitates at the slightest physical exertion and who is reported in the public space as being challenged by incontinence could attempt to speak on the health status of any Nigerian.
“Moreover, some medical professionals have associated certain cases of nerve cell death with narcotic use and unhealthy lifestyle and our campaign urges Tinubu to examine himself in that regard”.
