The spokesperson of the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Dino Melaye, has said that Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), lacks the mental and physical fitness to lead Nigeria.
It has been reported that Melaye, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was speaking against the backdrop of Tinubu misstepping at the flag-off of his campaign in Jos, Plateau State on Tuesday.
On the same day, the former Lagos State governor suffered a gaffe. While concluding his speech, Tinubu said: “God bless PD…” and quickly corrected it to “God bless APC.”
“God bless PD… APC. God bless APC. APC. God bless APC. We will have the victory. God bless you,” he said.
Reacting, Melaye said mental and physical fitness are constitutional requirements to be President of Nigeria.
“Make I no lie, baba no well. The Almighty God will heal, The Almighty God will touch you,” Melaye said in pidgin in a video posted on his Facebook page.
“Honestly, baba cannot do this thing. Baba is on low battery; baba is on low energy. Baba needs to just go and settle down and take care of himself. So tey, the thing come reach one, baba come dey pray for PDP, come dey say make God bless PDP.
“He nearly fell. It is sad”
