Tinubu Taunts Atiku Over Dubai Trips



Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Sunday, took an indirect swipe at his counterpart in the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar while wooing the electorate in Kano State.

The former Lagos governor who vowed to devote 100 per cent of his time and energy to serving Nigerians if elected, however, stated that he would not be a part-time president that would spend 50 per cent of his time ruling the country from Dubai.


Recall Atiku is infamous for spending most of his time in Dubai.

The aforesaid remark was obtained in a statement released in Abuja by Tinubu’s Media Officer, Tunde Rahman, shortly after his (Tinubu) interactive session with members of the popular Tijjaniyyah sect in Kano.

The statement reads, “I won’t be a part-time President who will share time between living in Dubai and Nigeria. I would concentrate attention and energy on confronting and surmounting Nigeria’s pressing challenges.”

In attendance at the session held inside Kano Government House were his running mate, Kashim Shettima, and at least six Progressive Governors like Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), Abubakar Badaru (Jigawa), Bello Matawalle (Zamfara), Babajide Sanwo-olu (Lagos), former APC Interim Chairman, Bisi Akande and some of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) members.

Members of the Tijjaniyyah sect led by leader, Sheikh Bashir Tijjani Usman Zangon Bareebah, presented a long list of issues, during the meeting, the sect wants the APC presidential candidate to address when he gets to office.
