The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West has said that Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu must seek spiritual help for him to be delivered from the spirit of falsehood, saying; "It is embarrassing that someone of his status could lie over something as inconsequential as attendance of the United States Democratic Party Convention."

The PDP, which also described the conflicting statements coming from Tinubu and the ACN Spokesperson, Lai Mohammed as a further show of how fraudulent and shameless the ACN people are, wondered whether Tinubu no longer trust Lai Mohammed, who said on Tuesday that he (Tinubu) paid $5,000 to get the invitation.

PDP Zonal Publicity Secretary, Hon. Kayode Babade said in a release issued in Ibadan today that "Tinubu's blatant falsehood on the Democratic Party invitation is a further pointer to the fact that there is a spirit of falsehood tormenting him, and he needs to be delivered from this evil spirit."

While saying Tinubu's claim that he was actually invited specially to the Democratic Party Convention as false, the PDP challenged him to publish his invitation letter with which he was invited as leader of opposition in Nigeria, adding that; "This is not a matter to be arguing back and front about. Rather, Tinubu should just go ahead and publish the letter which he was specially invited to the convention."

The party also counselled Tinubu to go back to St. John Primary School, Aroloya, Lagos, Government College, Ibadan and University of Chicago (or Chicago state University) for a replacement of the certificates he claimed got burnt in 1999, saying; "This is necessary so that he (Tinubu) won't have to fill 'not applicable' again in his Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) forms come 2015 as he did in 2003."

"When a child that has access to everything from his parents still steals items as cheap as chewing gum, such a child is said to be suffering from the spirit of kleptomania.

"In the case of Tinubu, who has lied about everything, including his personality, we cannot but conclude that there is an evil spirit that is always urging him to lie, and the best those who love him can do is to encourage him to go for deliverance," the PDP said.

While maintaining that Tinubu must apologise to Nigerians for bringing the country's name into disrepute, the PDP said; "as we have said before, the most honourable thing for Tinubu and his ACN to do is to apologise to Nigerians for ridiculing the country with their lies of Tinubu's invitation by Obama when in actual fact, the invitation was bought for $5,000."
