2023: Be More Worried About Atiku’s Health, Credibility, Not Me – Tinubu

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for president, has assured Nigerians of his good health and lack of corruption, saying they should be more concerned with Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the 76-year-old candidate for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In a statement released on Tuesday in Abuja and signed by Mr. Bayo Onanuga, the Director of Media and Publicity for Tinubu’s Presidential Campaign Council PCC, Atiku was urged to address claims of both corruption and poor health.

“It is time for Atiku Abubakar, the 76-year-old presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party to come clean over two issues clouding his campaign: his health status and his scandalous confession of how he colluded with his former boss, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo to fleece the Nigerian treasury, using the special purpose vehicles after he became Vice-President in 1999”, said Tinubu.

Atiku should have dropped out of the race, he claimed, “after the release of his audio clip, in which he provides a graphic explanation of the modus operandi of his notorious corruption,” if he had even the barest shred of honor.


Tinubu highlighted that, other from a vain attempt to denounce the whistle-blower, Michael Achimugu, an Atiku media strategist, there hasn’t been any noticeable reaction from the Atiku camp to the troubling disclosure so far.

Senator Dino Melaye, a spokesperson for the former vice president, denied Achimugu’s claims right away and accused him of collaborating with “Bourdillon,” a reference to Tinubu’s famed Lagos home.

“What sort of media aide is he? Where is his appointment letter? Let him tell us about one publication he made on behalf of Atiku Abubakar. I don’t talk to these small ‘419 yahoo’ boys. He is only looking for attention after collecting money from Bourdillon. He should get out so we can focus on more serious matters,” Melaye had said.

However, Tinubu remarked that Nigerians are horrified by Atiku and the PDP’s lack of shame in dismissing the news.

“We implore Nigerians, however, to hold Atiku to account over the shocking revelation by rejecting him at the polls in February”, he stated.

“Atiku is also not talking about his health status even when his hirelings daily make futile attempts to divert public attention to his main rival by cooking up lies upon lies. Whereas Atiku is the candidate that Nigerians should be sorely worried about.


“The lies of several years and the various diversionary tactics are no longer sustainable. Atiku’s edifice of lies is about to crash on him. The PDP presidential candidate is certainly not okay, the papering efforts notwithstanding.

“Eyebrows were raised when Atiku did not return to the country after the December holidays to continue his lacklustre and faltering 5th campaign for Nigeria’s presidency.

“Amid the concern by political watchers that Atiku was missing from 21 December 2022 on the field of electioneering campaign, came the story by the online platform Sahara Reporters that Atiku was flown to the UK from his usual home in Dubai to London for treatment. The story has not been vigorously denied.

“We have it on good authority that Atiku indeed fell ill, while missing on the field. He was indeed in the UK for some medical help, though handlers camouflage that he was there on the invitation of some British officials at Whitehall, in a mimic of the earlier visit of the APC rival, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“Despite the efforts by his handlers to showcase Atiku as healthy and physically fit to endure the rigours of the presidential campaign, pictures from rallies have belied this. Campaign pictures sometimes showed him being helped to descend steps at stadia. Sometimes, he walked with an apparent handicap, dragging his feet”, the statement added.


The PDP candidate was hospitalized to a German hospital for a procedure while they were going through a contentious divorce, according to what was highlighted as the unfalsifiable insight into Atiku’s health situation provided by his estranged wife Jennifer Douglas last year.

In the statement, Jennifer reportedly cited Atiku’s self-admission that he was in Germany for medical treatment, which explained why he was unable to pick up his items from a Dubai home that Jennifer had taken over. The letter was circulated in February 2022.

“I hear you have moved to Dubai to take over the house. I am still in Germany for my medicals.* Make sure all my properties including (redacted) are intact so I can collect all my properties. I wish you well”, Jennifer, according to the statement, quoted Atiku as saying.

“She then responded to him: ‘Excellency, I am left with no other option as we need to get on with our lives amicably. I hope your medicals are coming up well. I wish you well too”.


“A man who wants to rule Nigeria and wants Nigerians to repose some trust in him must immediately and honestly address these twin issues: his health and his legendary corruption”, Tinubu declared.
