Ahead of the 2023 elections, Phrank Shaibu, the Special Assistant on Public Communication to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, has warned that handing over a sick nation to a sick leader is dangerous.
He said that Nigeria was currently in a dire situation with every sector of the economy in deep decay and should not be handed nation to a sick president.
WITHIN NIGERIA reports that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu had while speaking at the 7th edition of Kaduna Economic and Investment Summit (KADInvest 7.0) on Saturday said the state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai “turned a rotten situation to a bad one.”
In a statement issued on Sunday, Shaibu insisted that the Kaduna remark was one too many, saying that “Tinubu is tired and should go home and rest.”
He, therefore, called the attention of Nigerians to what he described d unsuitability of the presidential candidate of Tinubu for the nation’s highest office on account of a series of blunders he has made since he publicly declared his presidential ambition.
Shuaibu said: “When you look at the APC presidential candidate, you will see someone that is tired and weak. You have also heard the many gaffes that have come from him even before the kick-off of campaigns.
“The Kaduna comment is one gaffe, too many, and therefore unpardonable. You don’t have to be president at all costs; when you are tired, you go home.
“Nigeria is currently in a dire situation with every sector of the economy in deep decay; therefore, the nation cannot afford to hand over a sick nation to a sick president.”
Shuaibu noted that Nigeria deserves a fit leader, stressing that the office of the President is not for ailing people.
He said Tinubu has tried his best but he is now weak and tired and should be allowed to go home and take a deserved rest.
Shaibu lamented that it is only in Africa that persons who are unfit for offices on account of ill health insist on holding offices even at the expense of the wellbeing of the economy and the citizenry.
