A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in Kano, Aminu Abdulssalam Gwarzo has denigrated the national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu over his 12th Colloquium held in Kano State to celebrate his 69th birthday.
According to the leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement, the APC leader had ample opportunities to show that he is a true national leader but he has outrightly failed to use every opportunity prove himself as one.
Abdulssalam who said that colloquium has nothing to do with national cohesion also maintained that, the former governor of Lagos State is a man who could not identify with people at critical times.
“Colloquium in Kano has nothing to do with national cohesion and unity. When people were asked to stand up to be counted, he wasn’t there. So many things happened recently with the most recent one being the barbaric violence that erupted in Shasa, Ibadan. Being a political leader of the South West, at least as far as APC is concerned, Tinubu should have asked for restraint and seen to be active in trying to quell the looming crisis.”
“As someone who is aspiring to be president of this country, Tinubu should have risen to that occasion and talked positively. You don’t just come and hold your colloquium here (Kano) and think that will be a panacea for national unity,” he said.
