The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the “prayer” by the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu, shows that the PDP represents the “hope and aspiration of majority of Nigerians for a secure, prosperous future under a united country.”

In a statement, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, said the fact that Tinubu made the prayer during his presidential campaign flag-off in Jos, Plateau State, is a “pointer that it was not a slip of tongue but a divine proclamation that the hope for Nigeria, which he harped on can only come from the PDP.”

While rounding off his speech at the rally, Tinubu suffered a slip of tongue as he mistakenly referred to the PDP when he had his party in mind.

Responding, the main opposition party said since “Tinubu’s prophetic blessing on the PDP, our Party has been receiving flurries of calls, solidarity messages and visits from key members of the APC, who believe that his prayer is a divine act of God to point the nation to the right direction.

“This perhaps explains why Tinubu was incoherent and had no concrete message to Nigerians at the Flag-off of his campaign. He could not proffer any solution or idea to the challenges of insecurity, disunity, unabated killings, rising unemployment, tumbling Naira, collapsing economy with unprecedented debts of over N40 trillion arising from summersaulting macro-economic policies of his failed and corrupt APC government.”

PDP said the APC Presidential Candidate should be more concerned with his “narcotic indictment and inconsistencies in his personal biodata of name, age, ancestry, education and record of work which Nigerians have the right to know.”

According to the spokesman, having prayed for the PDP as the hope of the nation, “Nigerians expect Asiwaju Tinubu to have the courage to admit the fact that are already in the public domain, apologize to the nation and withdraw from the presidential race.”
