Tinubu vs Obiagbena: Secondus Asks APC to Disclose his Health Status
Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus has asked handlers of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, to come clean about the health of their candidate, instead of engaging in a needless spat with the proprietor of ThisDAY and Arise media group, Nduka Obiagbena.
Secondus, in a statement in Abuja yesterday, noted that rather than joining issues with Obaigbena, the APC team should have used the time and energy to position their candidate positively in the eyes of the public.
Read Also Secondus said: “Unless they are surrendering to the town talks that they have nothing to sell in the current political space and have chosen to cause unnecessary distractions, given the persisting tireless role of Nigeria media in the socio-political development of this country from independence in 1960 and continued in the June 12 democratic struggle that birthed this Republic, one expects the media to get involved in some more pragmatic matters not on undesirable squabbles.
“From whatever perspective you want to look at it, Arise TV and THISADAY Newspapers have not gone outside the dictates of their profession in asking a presidential candidate of a ruling party to present himself for public scrutiny.
“The health of your candidate should worry you because it would be unpatriotic to foist on the country unhealthy person for a position that requires complete mental and physical alertness,” he added.
