All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, says he remains ‘Gidigba(solid) in the party, despite the recent attack on the APC leaders at the Abeokuta rally in Ogun state.
He said the attack was disrespectful to the office of the Nigerian President.
The attack could have potentially harmed the person of the President, Tinubu said in a statement issued by his Special Adviser, Media, Mr Tunde Rahman on Tuesday in Lagos.
He was reacting to the APC rally in Ogun on Monday where some APC leaders were attacked by hoodlums from APM, allowed into the rally venue by Governor Ibikunle Amosun
”An incident did actually occur at the Ogun State APC rally, but it is not the one PDP has concocted.
”The true incident that should be reported and condemned is that people who oppose the party and the president tried to infiltrate and disrupt the rally.
”The attack by these operatives is disrespectful of the office of the president and could have potentially harmed the person of the president.
“Such antics have no place in our political discourse. The author of these misdeeds should desist before real harm is done.”
Tinubu said he had no plans of leaving the party as being insinuated by some reports based on a video clip from the Ogun rally.
In the video, Tinubu was alleged to be seen throwing the party’s flag at the presidential rally.
