Your Candidate, Tinubu is Suffering from Parkinson's Disease - PDP replies APC
The "war of words" between the camps of presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, and his Peoples Democratic Party counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, appears far from over as the latter has declared the former Lagos state governor "unfit" for the Office of the President.
The APC Presidential Campaign Council, through its Media Director, Bayo Onanuga, had first urged Atiku to clear the air on his alleged "ill health" while also calling on him to "quit" the presidential race over alleged "corrupt practices" while in office as Vice President.
In its reaction, the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation, in a statement signed by its spokesman, Kola Ologbodiyan, took a swipe at Tinubu over what it called “his failed attempt to impute illness on the healthy and energetic presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.”
The campaign organisation also said Tinubu’s camp failed “to impugn the impeccable character and integrity of the incoming peoples’ President, Atiku.”
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 with incontinence.
“For clarity, Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder whose symptoms include "shaking hands", "stiffness" of limbs, difficulty with coordination, a 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.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
