The chieftain said Mr Tinubu was not running from debates but being careful not to fall into the hands of his political adversaries.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) says its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, will not fall to the opposition’s plan to embarrass him through debate.
A chieftain of the APC, Abiola Oshodi, who is the vice chairman of the party in Canada, stated that Mr Tinubu will not dance to the tune of his political adversaries.
Mr Oshodi, a member of APC Presidential Campaign Committee Sustainable Development for Nigeria Directorate, stated this in a telephone interview on Monday.
He said that Mr Tinubu was not running from any political debate but being careful not to fall into the hands of his political adversaries conniving with some individuals.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been engaging Nigerians in his campaign activities that he has taken to over 10 different states since he launched the campaign activities barely four weeks ago.
“In addition, he has attended several town-hall meetings and other relevant political activities.
“What he has refused as a political general that he is, is to allow himself to be lured into a political ambush disguised as presidential debates anchored by largely partisan people and with rigged audience primed to embarrass him.
“There is no suave political general that he is that will fall for such. He grants interviews and he granted some recently,” he stated.
Mr Oshodi further said that Mr Tinubu offers the best hope among all the frontline presidential candidates economically and politically.
He said that The Renewed Hope manifesto of Mr Tinubu offered the best socio-political and economic development pathway out of Nigeria’s current challenges.
“Our revenue challenges will become a thing of the past and our youths can be meaningfully engaged and their bursting energies and creativities can be turned into a source of income generation for themselves and the nation.
“And the major challenge confronting the nation is insecurity and with a new robust approach embedded in the Renewed Hope manifesto, such will become a thing of the past if Asiwaju emerges victorious and the manifesto implemented,” he stated.
Mr Oshodi said that his prayer was for Mr Tinubu to become president in 2023 and build on the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari, especially on infrastructure.
