The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) asserted that the ruling party lacks a legitimate presidential candidate for the general election of 2023.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has responded to this assertion.
Debo Ologunagba, the PDP’s national publicity secretary, requested that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the party’s presidential candidate, seek legal counsel regarding the ramifications of the court decision from last month that invalidated Governor Mai Mala Buni’s position as the party’s national caretaker committee chairman.
The main opposition party challenged Tinubu to take responsibility for the effects and ramifications of the inconsistencies in his academic credentials and other problems he has become involved in.
The PDP spokesman encouraged Tinubu to “go home and face the issues of contradictions in his educational qualifications, name, ancestry, age, as well as corruption allegations” while speaking at a press conference in Abuja.
In response, the APC disregarded Ologunagba’s assertion and advised him to seek clarification.
Felix Morka, the national publicity secretary for the APC, said that there were errors in the Federal High Court’s decision.
“I am convinced that the ruling will not withstand the examination of the appellate court,” stated Morka.
“In any event, that committee was duly constituted by the NEC of the APC and everything the caretaker committee did was duly ratified by the national convention, the highest decision-making organ of the party, in Akeredolu’s case, which settled the question as to the validity of Mai Mala Buni Caretaker Committee,” the statement continued.
We are confident in our legal position and unconcerned by the ruling.
