The media office Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a presidential aspirant under the All Progressives Congress (APC), has issued a statement, warning the public to beware of plots by unscrupulous persons against him.
Since the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo declared to run for president, there have been accusations and counter accusations being hurled by his supporters and that of the former governor of Lagos, Tinubu.
In the statement titled, ‘Tinubu is the target of blasphemous campaign’, the aspirant’s media office said: “The orchestrated set-up of a poster campaign seeking to use a literary application of the Biblical story of Judas Iscariot’s betrayal of Jesus Christ to rope Asiwaju Tinubu into a storm of blasphemy is the most desperate antics of anti-Tinubu propagandists in recent times.”
It said: “Investigations have revealed that those who created the offensive poster were the same people who created the counter-campaign alleging blasphemy. Their design is used both to provoke anger against the person and aspiration of Asiwaju Tinubu.
“This campaign has failed. This is clearly irresponsible and insensitive political propaganda that seeks to exploit religious sentiments to manipulate public perception against Asiwaju Tinubu, who is ostensibly the most formidable presidential aspirant in this race.”
