Bola Tinubu fit as fiddle, APC replies PDP

The Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council says the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is fit as a fiddle to run the affairs of the country if given the mandate.

Reacting to allegations that Senator Tinubu was not fit for the presidency, Director Special Media Projects and New Media, Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Chief Femi Fani Kayode, maintained that the alarm being raised over Tinubu’s health status was misplaced.

The spokesperson for the Atiku-Okowa Campaign Council, Senator Dino Melaye, had asked the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) to conduct drug tests on leading presidential candidates’ ahead next general elections.

Senator Melaye who spoke with newsmen at the weekend pointed out that it is was a constitutional requirement for anyone aspiring to the office of the president of Nigeria to be mentally and physically fit and specifically picked on the APC presidential candidate.

Mr. Fani-Kayode therefore made a passionate appeal to politician not to be desperate in their quest for political power, stressing that Nigerians knew better who to vote for.
