The campaign also said that it found it pathetic that Tinubu was seeking a face-saving measure ahead of his “shattering electoral defeat by shedding crocodile tears” and claiming that the redesigning of the naira notes and the fuel crisis under the APC administration, which he had been allegedly benefitting from, were plots to scuttle the 2023 general elections.
Spokesperson for the campaign, Kola Ologbondiyan, while further speaking in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja, noted that “it is unfortunate that Asiwaju Tinubu is trying to hoodwink Nigerians by seeking to exonerate himself and blame others in the Buhari led-APC administration from the biting fuel scarcity in the country, when in reality he (Asiwaju Tinubu) is known to be behind the insensitive and anti-people policies that have brought so much calamity to our country the current persistent fuel scarcity.
