But the spokesman for the Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation, Kola Ologbondiyan, alleged in a telephone interview with one of our reporters last night that Tinubu represents a threat to national cohesion, adding that the APC allegations better suited Asiwaju.
He said Atiku is known across the length and breadth of the country as a symbol of cohesion, unity and purposeful collaboration.
He said, “Tinubu has been an apostle of regional politics where ethnicity and division along religious lines are dominant. As a matter of fact, his contemporary politics showcase a blatant disregard for ethnic groupings other than his.
“Neither have Nigerians forgotten the threats of ejection from Lagos on the political opponents of Tinubu and the wanton destruction of electoral materials in areas where the former governor’s party would not do well.
“It is imperative to state that the campaign of calumny against Atiku notwithstanding, he is the pan-Nigerian leader loved and respected across the six geo-political zones of the country.”
