The National Vice-Chairman (South-West) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Isaac Kekemeke has dared anyone with evidence that the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu betrayed the Yoruba nation.
Kekemeke who disclosed this while briefing newsmen shortly after the party’s zonal meeting at the state party Secretariat in Ibadan, said that Tinubu had always fought on the side of his people for justice, fairness, progress and development.
“I challenge anyone who can say that there is a record of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu betraying the Yoruba nation and denying them of what is due to them.
“All the people can accuse him of, is that he believes the Yoruba people can thrive exceedingly well in the Nigerian nation where there is justice, fairness and equity,” he said.
Kekemeke said the array of support groups for Tinubu’s presidential bid was evidence that he is popular and the people’s man.
He said that the support groups would be coordinated at the appropriate time for maximum benefit of the party, adding they deserved to be appreciated.
“It used to be a thing of worry to me before, but now it’s exciting. It means that our candidate is popular and individuals want to play a role.
“To me, it is evidence of our candidate’s popularity. It shows his character and acceptability. It is good for our campaign.
“I am sure at the appropriate time, as the campaign begins, all the groups would be coordinated for maximum benefit of the party,” Kekemeke said.
The National vice-chairman (South-West) said that APC believes in restructuring Nigeria, as well as the practice of true federalism as contained in its formulated and approved manifesto.
On the assertion by the PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, that he understands APC very well, Kekemeke said, Atiku must be joking.
According to him, Atiku left APC because he couldn’t understand the party, adding they knew the PDP more than Atiku thinks he knew APC.
“If Atiku says he knows APC, those of us in APC knows the PDP more than he knows it. Our National Chairman was a Governor under PDP. Iyiola Omisore, our National Secretary, knows PDP. Sen. Teslim Folarin and I know the PDP. We all know the PDP. We know the PDP more than he thinks he knows the APC,” he said.
