The Tinubu-Shettima presidential campaign group said the ruling party’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, would build on the monumental achievements of the Buhari-led administration.
Bayo Onanuga, the director of the Media and Publicity Council, revealed this in Lagos on Thursday.
An APC leader, Tunde Bank-Anthony, had cast doubt on Tinubu’s achievements as Governor of Lagos State saying the presidential candidate had not transformed the state as he claimed .
Onanuga, who reacted to the claim on Thursday, said the party was proud of Tinubu’s legacy in the state, adding that it would build on the legacy of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Bola Ahmed Tinubu will campaign based on the bold legacy of the PMB government and there are many achievements despite the fake news in the media. Of course there are challenges, but the problems are being solved.
“There seems to be a conspiracy in the media not to feature the government’s achievements, especially the successes against terrorists and bandits in the North East. Under this administration, the tech sector has seen a boom which has helped the economy,” Onanuga said.
He also said the campaign council had said nothing about proposed diaspora funding for the presidential ambition of Labor Party presidential candidate Peter Obi.
Onanuga further dismissed the chances of carrying the Labor Party banner in the 2023 general election, adding that the ruling APC would win massive votes in almost every region.
“I never said Peter Obi was breaking the law, but I say he is a creation of social media, and he will be unfolding very soon. The statement does not come from us regarding diaspora funds.
“We also want to appeal to the media that the issue of diaspora funds does not come from us; many people spreading this news do not represent the party,” he concluded.
