From Ndubuisi Orji, Abuja
Former Enugu State governor, Chimaroke Nnamani, has said that the All Progressives Congress ( APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, is qualified to contest for the Presidency in the 2023 general elections.
Nnamani, who currently represents Enugu East senatorial zone of Enugu State, on platform of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) stated this in a statement, yesterday, in Abuja.
Nevertheless, the former governor said his vote is “covered by the umbrella per my Party (PDP) and our candidate, HE Atiku Abubakar.
Nnamani, while recalling that himself and the APC candidate were colleagues as governors, said he is opposed to campaigns targeting the latter’s health.
He said “I vigorously oppose, protest and detest the shameless campaigns and parody targeting Tinubu’s health.
“As a health worker I am amazed by the ignorance, foolishness, wickedness and callousness of these idiotic operators. I believe they are unwarranted, extremely unprofessional, and have no place in our polity…
“These actions which bleed my heart personally are of public records. History and the Almighty will be very harsh to these bad political comedians. Since we all desire a better Nigeria, our politics should be grounded in facts and reliable evidence. This is the only way we can advance this nation.”
Nevertheless, the former governor added that ” Bola Tinubu needs to work on improving relationships with many others especially my people the Igbo. He needs to lead by advocacy, example, practice and open mindedness in assuaging the feeling and ongoing hostility to the Igbo in Lagos.
“Tinubu is qualified to run for president of Nigeria in 2023 as there is no evidence that he has dementia. While my vote is covered by the umbrella per my Party PDP and our candidate, HE Atiku Abubakar. I take a bow for the hardest working Politico of this generation. He patiently paid his dues”.
