Former Governor of Niger State, Dr Babangida Aliyu, on Monday, described the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as the healthiest of all the candidates contesting the 2023 presidential election.
Making reference to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu’s latest fitness video currently trending on social media, Aliyu took a swipe at Tinubu who had been absent at some important events, especially the peace pact.
Tinubu had on Sunday, posted a short video of himself on his social media, dismissing any issue relating to health challenges.
In the video posted, he wrote: “Many have said I have died; others claim I have withdrawn from the presidential campaign. Well… Nope. This is the reality: I am strong, I am healthy and I am ready to serve Nigerians from day one.”
However, Aliyu spoke in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, during the declaration of support for Atiku by 20 volunteer groups in South West.
The rally was attended by former governors Ibrahim Shekarau (Kano), Boni Haruna of Adamawa, former acting National Chairman of the PDP, Elder Yemi Akinwunmi, Ogun PDP governorship candidate, Ladi Adebutu, his running mate, Adekunle Akinlade, among other South-West PDP leaders.
The former Niger governor said a medically fit presidential candidate needed no proof by sharing video clip on social media.
Aliyu insisted that “Atiku is the healthiest of the presidential candidates in this country.”
