Tinubu on medical trip to Europe, not working visit – Atiku’s Spokesman, Bwala
The camp of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to the report of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu departing Nigeria for Europe.
Atiku’s spokesman, Daniel Bwala, claimed Tinubu’s trip was a medical follow-up and not a working trip, as stated by his media team.
Bwala said calling Tinubu’s journey a working trip is wrong because he’s not the president yet.
Tweeting, Bwala wrote: “Now they have learned to call the medical follow-up trip a working trip. Hold on; he is not yet the president, so technically, it is wrong to call it a working trip or visit. His media people should learn to humanize him so they do not have to make lies statecraft.
“We have seen the movie before. Whilst PMB’s media people were busy saying the president is on a working trip or visit, PMB keeps saying “I have never been this sick before”. I thought Tinubu’s media aides would learn from that; alas if it didn’t Dey, it didn’t Dey.”
Recall that a statement by Tinubu’s spokesperson, Tunde Rahman, had said the President-elect will use the opportunity of his trip to Europe to finetune the transition plans, programmes and policy options with key aides without distractions.
Tinubu is also expected to engage with investors and allies to market investment opportunities for the country during his trip.
