Paul Ibe, the media adviser to Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has asked Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to subject himself to an hour-long interview.

Atiku had in an interview with ARISE TV on Friday, made many claims including saying he rejected an offer by Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to be his running mate in 2007, so as not to field a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

But reacting to the interview, the Bola Tinubu campaign organisation, said the PDP presidential candidate told “many lies” and displayed ignorance on issues in the country.

In a statement on Saturday, Ibe described the response of Tinubu’s campaign organisation as “knee-jerk”.

He said the APC presidential candidate through his team is not in a position to “point fingers” at Abubakar.

“We would like to challenge Bola Tinubu to subject himself to an hour-long interview, as the Waziri did, and if he is able to be as articulate and mentally present as our candidate, then he can talk,’ the statement reads.

“Until then, we will only want to remind him and his yes men that they are not in a position to point fingers when they have not sat on the hot seat.”
