The party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of running an anti-Tinubu campaign.
Professor Chidi Odinkalu, a prominent human rights lawyer in Africa and a former head of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), says thus.
Has asserted that President Buhari might be conspiring against Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential contender.
At APC rallies, President Buhari allegedly asks Nigerians to support a candidate who has qualities that don’t really reflect good on the party.
In an interview with the SUNDAY TRIBUNE, he maintained that “the president is campaigning with Tinubu and telling the people ‘don’t vote for a fraudulent person.’
Prof. Odinkalu believes that the president may be supporting a different candidate than Tinubu in this situation.
“The question for me is: does Tinubu want to continue presenting the president for him to keep saying the kind of things he is saying at the rallies, things that cut both ways and impossibly actually don’t reflect quite well on his candidate, it seems to me.
“That is up to the candidate to decide. I also don’t see how Buhari necessarily sells Bola Tinubu as a candidate.”
