2023: Tinubu ‘Under Attack’ For Failing To Attend NBA Conference

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has come under heavy criticism for not attending the opening ceremony of the 62nd Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).

Naija News reports that the APC Vice presidential candidate and former Governor of Lagos State, Senator Kashim Shetima, represented his principal at the event on Monday.

In his remark, Shettima called on Nigerians to vote for their joint ticket because of their achievements as governors in Lagos and Borno States.

The former Borno Governor said Tinubu would replicate at the federal level the achievements he recorded in Lagos, saying his principal would hit the ground running if elected into office in 2023.

However, some netizens have taken to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to slam the APC presidential candidate for sending his deputy to the event.

Below are some of the reactions.

I just dey pity esp d poor masses day will be blinded to vote for another ruler instead of a leader…that same issue with Buhari govt. VOTE WISELY.”

@AdeseyeTemitayo wrote: “Tinubu made consultation in person, visited Obasanjo in person but cannot attend the conference it depicts one thing; he is only desperate for power but doesn’t have anything to offer, he can only appear where he can buy people and not where people can question is competency.

@Dewise87089860 wrote: “Those are red flag signs, but tribalism and religious sentiments won’t make us see it. Buhari started this way. Some of his supporters are already saying he is above Obi and Atiku, Shettima is the one at their level. Nigerians open your eyes and minds. The signs are there.”

@Newnigeria_news wrote: “He’s not yet a president and he’s already sending his VP to represent. What will happen if ( God forbid) he becomes one? Remember I already said God forbid. Make do of this information and vote wisely.
