Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 elections, has challenged his All Progressives Congress (APC) counterpart, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, to make himself available for an hour long TV interview.
He stated this in reaction to allegation made by the Tinubu Campaign Organisation (TCO) that he was not prepared to lead the country.
TCO pointed to some of the issues discussed during his last TV interview, the former vice president dared Tinubu to take up the challenge.
“‘We would like to challenge Bola Tinubu to subject himself to an hour long interview, like the Waziri did, and if he is able to be as articulate and mentally present as our candidate, then he can talk. Until then, we will only want to remind him and his yes men that they are not in a position to point fingers when they have not sat on the hot seat,” Atiku said in a statement which Paul Ibe, his Media Adviser, issued on his behalf.
Ibe added that the former vice president was “amused to read the knee jerk response from the Tinubu Campaign Organisation to the wave making interview granted by Atiku Abubakar”
