ABUJA- PEOPLES Democratic Party, PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, PDPPCO Thursday took a swipe at the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC and former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, described as baseless and false his claims that the PDP and the Presidency offered him the position of vice president in an Interim National Government (ING) if he would dump his party’s Presidential candidate, General Muhhamdu Buhari, retd.
According to PDP, the government or the party was not in any way trying to frame Tinubu for murder and that no one from the government approached him to be the Vice President of anything, just as it described him as having sn overinflated opinion of himself.
In a statement by the Tinubu Media Office had said, “From what can be gathered through informed sources, the PDP and Jonathan Presidency had recently tried to fracture the APC by offering Tinubu the position of vice President in an interim government if he would agree to Part Company with the popular Buhari.
Once Tinubu rebuffed the offer to participate in the interim scheme, the presidency decided to change tactics. It would no longer try to entice Tinubu with sugar but would now move to silence and if necessary neutralize him.
But in a swift reaction, the Director, Media and Publicity of PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani- Kayode said, “These allegations are baseless and false. These people have become prisoners of their own delusions and they have become victims of their horrific and terrifying hallucinations.
“We are not in the least bit interested in the formation of an interim government and we are even less interested in participating in any contraption in which Bola Tinubu would play any role.
“Those that killed Funso Williams know who they are and it is very clear that his spirit is now tormenting his murderers. Let them be fully aware of this: whoever it was that killed Funso William will suffer the judgment of God both in this life and in the life hereafter. God would see to that.
“It is not true that anyone is trying to frame Tinubu for murder and it is not true that anyone from our government approached him to be the Vice President of anything. It is clear that he has an overinflated opinion of himself and he is suffering from the most extreme form and manifestation of paranoia.
“The man is hiding from his own shadow and the fear of his party losing at the polls later this month is giving him sleepless nights. Whether he, Buhari and their APC like it or not, they will be devastated at the polls and they would suffer a crushing and irreparable defeat.
“The everlasting confusion that would ensue in their camp after suffering this defeat will never be forgotten. The truth is this: the dementia in which Tinubu is suffering from has come as a consequence of his numerous sins. He should settle all these issues with God and leave us alone.”
