Tinubu’s outing at Chatham House, complete charade, says Momodu
The director, Strategic Communication of the Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), former Vice President Atiku Campaign Organization, Dele Momodu, has described the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s outing at Chatham House, London, as a complete charade.
Momodu in a statement Tuesday said Tinubu’s handlers fumbled, and bungled.
He said the APC presidential candidate was showcased like a packaged invalid, adding that, “It would have been better to present him as a brilliant politician and administrator, warts and all, who’s capable of independent thoughts.
