The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council spokesman, Festus Keyamo has come out to say that the party can’t continue defending its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, whereabouts every now and then

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, Nigerians are misconstruing the issues at hand, and even if Tinubu is currently APC’s presidential flagbearer, he is yet to become Nigeria’s president.

He added that the party, Tinubu and the presidential campaign council would not be issuing press statements to explain the former Lagos State governor’s whereabouts anytime soon.

His words, “My information about our candidate is that he is hale and hearty. That is the information I get this morning. He is out of the country and he will be back in a matter of days. It is as straightforward as that.”

“There is no controversy and no indication that there should be cause for concern. I do understand that he is a candidate for an election but we should also understand that he is not a president too.”

“And to issue a statement every minute as to his whereabouts? the standard is not as high as being the president of Nigeria. He is just a candidate. Yes, he has some responsibilities towards the electorates and I do agree, but the standard is not as high as a president in office who could at every point in time issue statements as to his whereabouts.”

“We are not going to live our lives for the opposition and mischief makers. I know there are some genuine concerns and inquiries, but there are also mischief makers. For those who are genuine like you, I think you should be satisfied when a campaign council spokesperson comes on air and say he (Tinubu) is hale and hearty. If you probe further, then it is mischievous.”

“I spoke with Seyi (Tinubu’s son). The son is with him and the son says “daddy is okay” and that is our discussion this morning.”
