Tinubu No Longer Has Party Structure To Run On – Social Critic, Farooq Kperogi

A social critic and scholar, Prof Farooq Kperogi, has stated that Bola Tunubu, the presidential candidate for the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), doesn’t appear to have the support of his party’s members.

Kperogi, who stated this via his Twitter page on Tuesday night, claimed that the former Lagos Governor does not have any political party to run on ahead of the general elections.

“Looks like Bola Tinubu no longer has a political party to run on. The APC rug appears to have been pulled from under him. There’s no precedent for this. The “hot war” I talked about in my Saturday column seems to be raging now. Interesting times,” he tweeted.

Meanwhile, speaking at a rally in Ogun State last Wednesday, Tinubu had said the scarcity of petrol and the naira redesign would not affect his chances of securing victory.

“They don’t want the election to hold,” the former governor of Lagos had said.

“They want to disrupt it. Will you allow that? Will you vote?”

This remark made Phrank Shaibu, an aide to Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said Tinubu was using the problems as an excuse for his imminent defeat.

But, Bayo Onanuga, the council’s director of APC media, said Tinubu was only drawing Buhari’s attention to saboteurs “possibly working in cahoots with the PDP.”

“For a presidential candidate who cares about the suffering of our people, he has a duty to warn the government that its efforts to make life better for Nigerians are being sabotaged on several fronts,” Onanuga said.
