The spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council, Daniel Bwala, has reacted to the report of the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu departing Nigeria for Europe.
According to Daily Post reports, Daniel Bwala, claimed Tinubu’s trip was a medical follow-up and not a working trip, as stated by his media team.
Bwala said calling Tinubu’s journey a working trip is wrong because he’s not the president yet.
In a post on his Twitter page on Wednesday, Bwala said: “We have seen the movie before. Whilst PMB’s media people were busy saying the president is on a working trip or visit, PMB keeps saying “I have never been this sick before”. I thought Tinubu’s media aides would learn from that; alas if it didn’t Dey, it didn’t Dey.
“Now they have learned to call the medical follow-up trip as a working trip. Hold on; he is not yet the president so technically it is wrong to call it a working trip or visit. It is better his media people learn to humanize him so they do not have to make lies a statecraft.”
Recalls that the President-elect on Wednesday afternoon left Nigeria for Europe, two weeks after returning from a three-country visit that included London, Saudi Arabia, and Paris.
According to Tinubu’s media aide, Tunde Rahmon said the trip is part of Tinubu’s efforts to refine transition plans and programs, as well as discuss policy options with key aides.
He said the trip allows the president-elect to carry out tasks without unnecessary pressure and distractions.
The statement added that Tinubu will engage with investors and key allies to market investment opportunities in Nigeria and showcase his administration’s commitment to fostering a business-friendly environment through policies and regulations.
Rahmon said reviving the country’s economy is a major part of Tinubu’s Renewed Hope agenda, and the meetings aim to re-establish Nigeria’s importance in the global economic chain and create opportunities for the country’s youth population.
