Atiku Dares Tinubu to Sit for an Interview As He Did.

The war of words and taunts between the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party -PDP and the All-Progressives Congress -APC, Atiku Abubakar, and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is not going away anytime soon as Atiku has thrown a challenge to Tinubu, daring the former Lagos State Governor to sit down and grant an hour-long interview like he (Atiku Abubakar) did this past Friday.

The latest taunt from the Atiku Abubakar camp was in response to a statement earlier made on Saturday by the Tinubu Campaign Organisation -TCO, where the team attacked him on some of the issues, he raised in the interview on Arise TV.

In the interview, Atiku had reported that Tinubu insisted on a Muslim-Muslim ticket in 2007 when they were both in the Action Congress -AC, but in a reaction, TCO in a statement given by its Director-General, Bayo Onanuga, had labeled Atiku a “pathological liar” who was “full of hypocrisy, spreading falsehood and of having a poor grasp of history and current affairs.”

While replying to the accusation by the TCO, Paul Ibe, Atiku’s media aide, in a statement on Saturday night, challenged Tinubu to “subject himself to an hour-long interview” if he was “mentally present and articulate enough to do so.”

“It is of importance to educate the Tinubu campaign organization that Nigeria is not under a military regime and our Constitutions are not retroactive. The rude response also accuses Waziri Atiku Abubakar of having “limited education”. Atiku Abubakar has earned a Master’s degree from Anglia Ruskin University. We challenge any of the current Presidential candidates to present an equal or higher degree. Moreover, his university attendance is a matter of verified record. Can we conclude the same about some other persons?”
