“Everything About Tinubu Is Mysteriously Controversial” – Dino Melaye Lament



A spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council, Senator Dino Melaye, has claimed that everything surrounding the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, is controversial.

Melaye stated that this is contrary to the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, whose public profile is clean and in the public domain.

Speaking on Channels Television Politics Today on Thursday, December 1, Melaye claimed that the PDP presidential flag bearer has a verifiable historical background, unlike Tinubu.

His words:

“Atiku Abubakar as an individual, you will read his biography, you will read his autobiography, you will read his history and if you read it 40 or 30 years ago it is still talking about the same person.

“You can identify his classmates, you can read about the schools he attended, there no controversy about where he is from, Jada, there is no controversy about Atiku Abubakar but everything about Bola Ahmed Tinubu is controversial, mysteriously controversial.”

Melaye also said that the PDP presidential candidate is the only nationalist among the 18 presidential candidates, who has friends in every nook and cranny of Nigeria.

Daily Trust newspaper quoted him as saying:

“Go to the core North and say Tinubu; nobody knows who Tinubu is. Go to the southeast they don’t know who Tinubu is.”

On his part, researcher and journalist, Nichola Ibekwe has revealed that the PDP has the most detailed manifesto ahead of the 2023 general elections. Ibekwe, a 2016 World Press Fellow, made the assertion in a Twitter thread on Friday, November 25.
