Atiku’s Camp Reacts to Tinubu’s ‘Working’ Visit to Europe

The camp of Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last presidential election, has responded to reports of Bola Tinubu, the President-elect, jetting off to Europe from the country.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Tinubu left Nigeria on Wednesday, just two weeks after returning from a three-country visit that included London, Saudi Arabia, and Paris.

Recall that according to a statement from the Office of the President-elect, the trip is part of his efforts to refine transition plans and programs and discuss policy options with key aides.

The statement, signed by Tunde Rahman, also highlighted that Tinubu will use the opportunity to engage with investors and key allies to promote investment opportunities in Nigeria.

However, Atiku’s campaign spokesman, Daniel Bwala, disputed the claims made by Tinubu’s camp, stating that the President-elect’s trip was a medical follow-up and not a working trip, as stated by his media team.

Bwala took to his Twitter page on Wednesday to voice his opinion and said that calling Tinubu’s journey a working trip is incorrect since he is not yet the president.

“Now they have learned to call the medical follow-up trip a working trip. Hold on; he is not yet the president, so technically, it is wrong to call it a working trip or visit. His media people should learn to humanize him so they do not have to make lies statecraft.

“We have seen the movie before. Whilst PMB’s media people were busy saying the president is on a working trip or visit, PMB keeps saying “I have never been this sick before”. I thought Tinubu’s media aides would learn from that; alas if it didn’t Dey, it didn’t Dey,” Bwala noted on the microblogging platform.
