Political economist, Pat Utomi, has dared the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to go for a medical checkup and make the result public.
Utomi stated this while answering questions on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday.
“Physically, you can see he is ailing. Let’s not kid ourselves. Let’s be honest,” he said.
Utomi refuted claims by the APC that Tinubu is fit, stating that “American presidents go through medicals.
“Let him (Tinubu) go through medicals with Nigerian doctors and make it (result) public.”
His stance, he argued, is because next year’s election and who leads the country is about “the lives of millions of people”.
According to him, the ruling party would have fielded another candidate in the person of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
“Our country has suffered so much from having ailing leaders. That was why I can say here, that was why the Vice President stepped up,” Utomi added, noting that Osinbajo “would have been a fit person”.
