Your call for reconciliation is not genuine, Atiku’s aide tackles Tinubu


Phrank Shaibu, an aide on communications to Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says the call by President-elect Bola Tinubu for post-election reconciliation is “hypocrisy”.


Tinubu said with the general election out of the way, Nigerians must champion the healing process to unite the country.


The president-elect said citizens should rise above the differences that emanated from the elections and embrace nation-building.


In a statement on Tuesday, Shaibu said Tinubu’s comments were hypocritical because he did not do anything when members of his party allegedly threatened Igbo people and other non-indigenes in Lagos, his home state.


 “Tinubu’s latest statement is laced with hypocrisy and lies,” Shaibu said.


“For a whole month, traditional leaders, transport hooligans, and politicians in his camp threatened non-indigenes but Tinubu kept mute.


“Traditional rulers imposed curfews and went about slaughtering goats and placing them in front of polling units but Tinubu said nothing.


 “A traditional leader and council chairman in Gbara community, Eti Osa local government summoned non-indigenes to a meeting where they threatened non-indigenes with eviction if they failed to vote for the APC but Tinubu said nothing.”


Shaibu thanked the US for condemning the violence recorded during the elections but asked the country to name and shame the culprits.


“The US has in the past openly condemned Vladimir Putin of Russia and others found wanting in other countries,” he said.


“This is not the time for political correctness. Those who will be slammed with visa bans should be named and shamed.”
