The Presidency has issued a warning to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to cease their campaign of slander and intimidation against the judiciary. Mr Bayo Onanuga, President Bola Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, made the demand in response to Atiku’s recent criticism of the nation’s judiciary. He stated that the PDP and Atiku’s spokesperson had made wild and libelous allegations against President Bola Tinubu, assaulting the integrity of the judiciary.
In the wake of the poor run of some elected governors of the party at the appeal court, Onanuga expressed that the PDP and Atiku’s spokesperson had become overtly desperate to blame President Tinubu and the judiciary for their woes. He urged the public to reject the false accusations made by the PDP and its candidate, which claimed that Tinubu had corrupted the judiciary and stifled the opposition while serving as Lagos State governor. Onanuga also urged the populace to reject the claim that Tinubu intended to designate supporters as Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) in order to impose a one-party state on the nation.
Furthermore, he emphasized that Tinubu was a staunch democrat who had never meddled with a court’s decision. The statement called upon Nigerians to reject the slander and blackmail being directed at the judiciary by the PDP and Atiku.
