The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation has described the performance of Bola Tinubu at the Chatham House in London as pathetic and a national disgrace.
Naija News reports that Tinubu addressed the Chatham House audience on a wide range of issues that will form major policies of administration if elected President in 2023.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate spoke extensively on agriculture, election violence, security, economy, and foreign policy, among others.
The former Governor of Lagos State also addressed some controversial issues regarding his age, educational qualifications, wealth, and health.
But in a statement on Monday evening, the Spokesperson of the PDP Campaign Organisation, Kola Ologbondiyan, said Tinubu’s performance at the event was a “pathetic display of vacuity”.
He said the APC flagbearer has confirmed to Nigerians and the world that he is grossly incompetent and has no business contesting in the 2023 Presidential election.
Ologbondiyan said Nigerians including Tinubu’s supporters were embarrassed to watch him go blank on the world stage in a tragic display of emptiness and inability to personally address questions that were put to him.
The statement reads: “Our Campaign finds it very appalling that a candidate aspiring to be the President of a nation as complex as Nigeria exhibited an embarrassing inability to coordinate his own thought process to the extent that he could not personally think through issues and address them but had to direct questions put to him including those on his health and policies to others to answer.
“Asiwaju Tinubu has confirmed to Nigerians and the world that he has no business contesting the 2023 Presidential election; that he is grossly incompetent, completely unprepared for leadership, and intends to transfer the onerous task of leading our nation to proxies and a cabal that did not seek votes from Nigerians.
“Of course, Nigerians cannot afford to have a President who cannot take responsibility to lead but intends to shift the burden to others and appear to find scapegoats to blame for his inevitable failures.
“The APC Presidential Candidate ended up becoming a butt of the international joke as he could not provide any lead on the critical issues of economy, security, youth development, and foreign policies, despite notes passed to him at the event by his handlers.”
