The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has described former Governor of Lagos State and Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) sole-proprietor, Mr. Bola Tinubu as a sick man, whose mental state requires urgent medical attention.

State Chairman of the party, Chief Bola Olu-Ojo, who was reacting to comment by the former governor that President Goodluck Jonathan was a drunkard, liar and a traitor said; “Obviously, that fake personality called Bola Tinubu must have taken overdose of that prohibited substance that is the cause of his annual medical visit to a South American country and his parlous medical state.”

Olu-Ojo, who urged President Jonathan not to be taken aback by such comments from Tinubu and his ilk, noted that; “Omo ti enikan o bi (a man who is not born by anyone) normally sees everyone in the same light as himself and won't mind pulling down other people father's house.”

He lamented what politics has foisted on the highly principled Yoruba people, saying; “Were it not for what politics has turned our society into, characters like Bola Tinubu that no one is sure whether his real father is either Yekini Ogunlere, Ogunmodede (from Iresi) or Tinubu (from Iragbiji) won't be mounting the podium to throw verbal darts at the president of his own country.

“We do not blame Tinubu but the systemic rot that allows such an element to have access to such a dizzying amount of money. It is trite to say that when big money misses its way into the hands of bad men, the society is in peril. But definitely, Yorubaland will be saved from this congregation of rascals, who have used their ill-gotten wealth to buy their ways into power.”

While describing Tinubu as one of the greatest threats to democracy in the country, Olu-Ojo said; “Who is a traitor between President Jonathan, who was a deputy governor for over six years and stood by his boss, Chief Diprieye Alamieyeseigha till the end or Tinubu, who rode on the back of Afenifere to become governor only for him to destroy the organisation and forced its leaders like Papa Abraham Adesanya, Chief Ganiyu Dawodu, Chief Olu Falae and others out of the Alliance for Democracy (AD)?

“Who is a power drunk between Tinubu, who for eight years ruled Lagos State like a fiefdom, with three deputies and has refused to allow his successor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola to function independently, and President Jonathan, who as a president does not interfere in the running of his home State, Bayelsa?

“And between Tinubu, who snatched Engr. Funsho Williams' mandate only for him (Williams) to be murdered in the cruelest manner and President Jonathan, who never acceded to the pressure to take over power when his boss, Alhaji Umaru Musa Yar'Adua was bed-ridden, who is a traitor?”

The PDP chairman said very soon; “the house of fraud built for the ACN by Justice Isa Ayo Salami and his cohorts in the appellate court will fall like a pack of cards and then, we will all see where Tinubu will hide his face.”
