Buhari Fully Reendorsed Tinubu In Yola



Dear Emma Aziken,

I am quite sorry to have to put it so bluntly but your story on your platform, GWG, headlined “Shock As Buhari Fails To Endorse Tinubu With Full Chest” is a complete disgrace from even a lax professional standpoint.

Indeed, it is a wholly false and clearly deliberately dishonest slant to what actually transpired earlier today in Yola.

President Muhammadu Buhari did not even need to endorse Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in Yola, having already more than adequately done so in Tinubu’s very first rally, last year in Jos.

At best he went to Yola to reendorse him, which he fully did, contrary to the patently false slant of your baseless report.

In any case, the President rejoined Tinubu’s campaign train specifically to refute insinuations that he isn’t fully with his own party’s presidential candidate, as you are fully aware.

Therefore, the one and only reason he went to Yola, in the first place, was all because of Bola Tinubu!

Moreover, President Buhari is not known for eloquence as one of his strong points, therefore investing his outing today in Yola with the sort of spin you are serving up as news is totally without basis and you, of all people, should know that.

In any case, Mr. President had initially forgotten to also address the rally in Hausa, the predominant lingua franca of the region, having already done so in English, till he was reminded to do so by Abdulahi Adamu, the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Chairman.

When he spoke in Hausa, the first words to come out of his mouth were an unequivocal reendorsement of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu by name, an affirmation the President, there and then, synchronized with a simultaneous raising of Tinubu’s hands!

What “fuller-chested” endorsement could have been forthcoming or were you expecting?

While I cannot begrudge you what I consider your totally misguided support for Peter Obi, and, would in fact defend your right to support him or any other person of your preference, anytime, any day, and, indeed, while I also find your disavowal of Bola Tinubu to be distinctly unchristian, and, without any justification in Christian theology, quite apart from its being woefully inconsistent with the culture of Christ, given that you are a defacto pastor, or at any rate, preacher of the gospel, I must, at any rate, insist that if you give yourself out as a journalist, you would just have to play by the rules of the profession or run the risk of intelligent men writing you off as just another quack.

As one who reads your online paper, therefore effectively a subscriber, it is my entitlement not to be assailed with junk masqueraded as news, as is the right of any other one of your readers to expect professionalism on your part.

I have to respectfully insist that having been in journalism as long as you have, it is quite disappointing to see you sound like just another putridly dishonest, and insufferably rude OBIdient out there, given to the most shamefully Gobbelian distortion of facts.

I am sorry, Mr. Aziken, but this was a truly shameful serving from your end and must urge you to do better going forward.

Yours truly,

Barr. Jesutega Onokpasa, Member APC Presidential Campaign Council.
