Joe Igbokwe, the Special Adviser for Drainage and Water Resources to Lagos State Governor, on Monday said that the campaigners of Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) “will not be distracted” by critics.
Newsbreak.ng had reported that amid questions about his health status, Tinubu said he is fit to run for the office.
The ex-Lagos governor who shared a workout video on his Twitter handle Sunday denied reports that he has withdrawn from the race.
Reacting, Igbokwe asked critics to focus on the achievements of the ruling APC government.
“They called President Buhari all sorts of names, they mocked him, they tried to ridicule him for no just cause, they said he has died and that the man in the seat of power is Jubrin of Sudan.
“Even the unimaginable works he has done across Nigeria East, West, North and South are not being celebrated. They pretend that nothing has happened. It is unbelievable, it is unthinkable and it is incomprehensible. But see the face President Buhari today.
“Today again they have transferred the same hate and aggression to APC Presidential Candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. They say he is sick, that he cannot run, he cannot write , he cannot even talk in a debate etc .
“The vicious cycle continues, the lies continue but when are we going to learn the huge lessons of history? When will they learn to call a spade a spade? When will they come out this primordial sentiments and pathetic joke and get serious?
“The stage is now set and we will once again display ideas that have stood us apart for years now.
“In the face of these blatant lies, hate speeches, bigotry our hands are still on the plough digging deeper, doing the needful, taking the Bulls by the horns, setting the agenda and influencing decisions even at the highest level. We will not relent.
“We will defeat lies with truths in the fullness of time. We will not be distracted; we will remain focused and smart,” Igbokwe wrote on his known Facebook page.
