The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has fired the National Leader of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for his verbal attacks on Atiku Abubakar over his comments on the suspension of CJN Walter Onnoghen on Friday.
Asiwaju Tinubu had earlier told Atiku Abubakar that he erred by not being able to differentiate the difference between the suspension and sacking of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, PPCO challenged Tinubu to list the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The statement said
â€œTinubu in attacking Atiku Abubakarâ€™s state of the nation address, which embodied the concerns, fears and apprehensions of Nigerians over President Muhammadu Buhariâ€™s despotic tendencies, has shown that he has finally turned his back against Nigerians because of pecuniary interests.
â€œWe invite Nigerians to note that all the accusations of undemocratic actions alluded to by Asiwaju Tinubu against Atiku Abubakar did not come under Atiku Abubakarâ€™s purview of decision or his sphere of control while in office as the Vice President of Nigeria.
â€œIf anything, Atiku Abubakar was in charge of the economy during the period and every Nigerian can testify that, within that time, our economy thrived to be one of the fastest growing in the world and the purchasing power of citizens was much more higher than what obtains today.
â€œIt is, therefore, very pitiable that Asiwaju has become flippant in his desperation to please the cabal and market a bad product that President Buhari has become before Nigerians.
â€œIt is rather unfortunate that while other respected leaders in our country are rallying with the peoples candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to rescue our nation from the stranglehold of undemocratic forces, Asiwaju is busy dining with such oppressive forces and casting aspersion on respected leaders, to the chagrin of Nigerians across the board.
â€œFrom the foregoing, we challenge Asiwaju to list a single attribute of President Buhari that qualifies him as a Democrat.
â€œBy supporting President Buhari, Asiwaju has exposed his support for nepotism, hunger, insecurity, violation of human rights, constitutional breaches, attacks on democratic institutions, disobedience of court orders, arbitrary arrests, illegal detention, low purchasing power of citizens as well as other vices by which the Buhari administration is known.â€
