Monday, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate informed the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, that he (Atiku) was never Senate President.
Atiku was responding to a statement made by Tinubu during the APC rally in Uyo, the state capital of Akwa-Ibom, earlier on Monday, in which he stated that he appointed Atiku as Senate president.

Imagine every day gaffes. Was Atiku Abubakar ever in the NASS? Nor ever served as the Senate President? History would not be kind to those who are packaging this disaster to our country. Thank God Nigerians have rejected him already pic.twitter.com/A2YYRxMFaT

The constant gaffes of All Progressives Congress presidential candidate Bola Tinubu, which began as comic relief, are slowly becoming a tragedy, an embarrassment to Nigeria, Africa’s largest nation,” lamented the former vice president.
Atiku stated, “Since Tinubu declared his intention to run for office, he has made over 20 public gaffes.” These gaffes, which have provided material for online parodies, are no longer funny but a tragic embarrassment for a nation in desperate need of salvation.
Aside from his dubious background and track record, Tinubu’s incessant gaffes and blunders are the result of his deteriorating health, according to the former vice president. His mental degeneration poses a clear and present threat to national security. A man who lacks firm command over his mental faculties cannot lead a nation.”
In a statement released by his Special Assistant for Public Communication, Phrank Shaibu, Atiku listed Tinubu’s previous gaffes and urged Nigerians to remember that the Bola Tinubu who served as governor from 1999 to 2007 is not the same as the Bola Tinubu of today.
“The Bola Tinubu of today lacks the ability to lead a nation of 200 million people, the vast majority of whom live in abject poverty.”
“It is not really about his age, as many world leaders are also in their senior years. It is about his demeanour, his words, and his faux pas. These matters can no longer be disregarded. Tinubu and his allies have stated, in an attempt to deceive the electorate, that Tinubu makes up for his lack of physical strength with his intelligence.
Atiku lamented, “Unfortunately, it appears Tinubu’s physical strength exceeds his mental capacity, judging by his numerous embarrassing statements.
“On the surface, this may seem humorous, but when one considers that Tinubu is the candidate of the ruling party, it becomes tragic.” Tinubu’s handlers are aware of his diminishing mental capacity, so they will not permit him to participate in debates or live interviews. Atiku said.
Tinubu’s handlers, who are now acting as a cabal, believe that if he becomes president, he will receive the best medical care and delegate important state responsibilities to them.
“This is also why Tinubu has relied on his surrogates to participate in crucial discussions. Even at Chatham House in London, Tinubu was unable to confidently answer the questions posed to him, preferring to hide behind the justification that he “believes in working with unbreakable teams.” This is humorous, given that his dictatorial tendencies have driven Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola out of his camp.
“It is important to note, however, that Aso Rock is neither a sanatorium nor a mental institution. In this regard, Nigerians have the right to demand that any candidate for this office be in the best of health.
