2023: We won’t insult rival parties during campaign – Tinubu

Bola Tinubu

Ahead of the official commencement of political campaigns, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu, has said that he will not exchange insults with other political parties.

The former Lagos state governor stated this during his meeting with APC’s Northern State lawmakers in Abuja on Saturday, September 3, 2022.

He noted that APC is a smarter party, urging members not to be bothered about the opposition.

According to Tinubu: “We shall not be hauling abuses at rival political parties.

“We don’t need it; we are smarter, we are brilliant, we are courageous.

“We are not like them. Why do we have to worry about them?

“But just wait for the calendar, the day of the voting.”

Also speaking, Tinubu’s running mate, Kashim Shettima, appealed to the North to support the APC presidential candidate ahead of the 2023 elections.

Shettima said Tinubu was instrumental to the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

He noted that 2023 was the time for the North to pay Tinubu back for supporting Buhari.

“This is payback time,” Shettima said.

Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced that it will release the final lists of Presidential, Governorship and other candidates on September 20th and October 4th respectively.

INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, disclosed this during a meeting, organised by the Centre for Democracy and Development in Abuja on Thursday, August 1, 2022.

According to him, the publication was in line with Section 32(1) of the Electoral Act, 2022, as well as the Timetable and Schedule of Activities released by the Commission.
