PDP slams Tinubu over visit to Mecca to see Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has berated “the self-styled leader” of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for resorting to hauling insults against the PDP to curry political relevance, ostensibly for his selfish pecuniary interests.

The party said on Tuesday that by traveling to faraway Mecca, Saudi Arabia at this Ramadan period, just to meet President Muhammadu Buhari and “engage in gossips, invectives, and diatribes against the PDP, Asiwaju Tinubu has further demonstrated that he has nothing to offer towards the development of our nation.”

In a statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary, the party said: “It is atrocious that at the time other leaders are in the Holy Land offering prayers and supplications for our nation, Asiwaju Tinubu is in Mecca for photo-ops, playing dirty politics and hauling insults at other Nigerians just to curry relevance before President Buhari.”

The party noted that nothing but sheer hypocrisy would push Asiwaju Tinubu to engage in unholy praises of “a failed administration” in desperation to avert the purported threats by certain agents of the Buhari Presidency to expose him.
