APC slams Northern Coalition over caustic comments against Tinubu

 

The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC), has reacted to comments against the National Leader of the party, Bola Tinubu by the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG).

Recall yesterday that the CNG in a statement accused Tinubu of speaking from both sides of the mouth regarding the unity of the country.

The CNG in the statement also noted that it was compelled to make the remarks after it read some news reports on Monday, August 11, 2019 with the caption “Let’s work for growth, not separation” attributed to comments made by Tinubu.

Reacting to the comments by the CNG, factional chairman of the Lagos APC, Mr. Fouad Oki, dismissed the allegations by CNG against Tinubu.

In a statement issued on Wednesday Oki said; “If they want to attack Tinubu, their allegations must be verifiable. In the first place, the group should ask northern leaders in APC or if possible, the presidency, how Lawal was appointed as SGF. They should also find out which of the northern elites does not have business or other relationship with Tinubu.


“Perhaps, they forgot that the current director-general of the Budget Office, Mr. Ben Akabueze, an Igbo man from the southeast, served under Tinubu for eight years as Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, just as Mr. Joe Igbokwe, who is also an Igbo man served as Lagos APC publicity secretary and is now a commissioner-designate under Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the instance of the national leader. There are numerous Igbo people that have deep political affinities with Tinubu like Pat Utomi, Senator Godswill Akpabio and others.

“All the stories about Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition are based on assumption, and unfortunately they are indirectly promoting him. The national leader has not come out to declare his intention to contest for the presidency, just as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is yet to give the go-ahead to anybody, group of people or political party to start a campaign in the country.”
