Former Governor of Niger State and PDP Chieftain, Babangida Aliyu has taunted the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, saying he does not need to share a video of himself riding a bike to prove he is fit to be president.
Aliyu made the remark while speaking at the Ogun State PDP Secretariat in Abeokuta on Monday.
He took a swipe at Tinubu, saying “a medically fit presidential candidate needs no proof by sharing video clips on social media.”
Aliyu said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flagbearer, Atiku Abubakar remains the healthiest of all the presidential candidates.
Aliyu insisted that “Atiku is the healthiest of the presidential candidates in this country.”
Aliyu, former Governors, Ibrahim Shekarau of Kano and Boni Haruna of Adamawa had stormed Abeokuta on behalf of Atiku.
Others at the event were, a former Acting National Chairman of the PDP, Elder Yemi Akinwonmi; the Ogun PDP governorship candidate, Ladi Adebutu; his running mate, Adekunle Akinlade, among other Southwest PDP leaders.
Aliyu expressed confidence that an Atiku presidency would reclaim Nigeria from the Boko Haram insurgents, bandits and other criminal elements.
Recall Tinubu had shared a video of himself on a treadmill on Sunday evening, debunking rumours that he was sick or dead.
While sharing a video of himself, Tinubu had captioned it; “Many have said I have died; others claim I have withdrawn from the presidential campaign. Well… Nope. This is the reality: I am strong, I am healthy.”
