Political economist and chieftain of the Labour Party (LP), Pat Utomi has dared the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu to go for a medical checkup and make the result public.
Speaking on Monday while fielding questions on Channels Television’s Politics Today, the former presidential candidate claimed that Tinubu is unfit to be president.
While insisting that there are signs to show Tinubu is unfit for the post, Utomi said, “Physically, you can see he is ailing. Let’s not kid ourselves. Let’s be honest.”
Utomi refuted claims by the APC that Tinubu is fit, stating that “American presidents go through medicals.
“Let him (Tinubu) go through medicals with Nigerian doctors and make it (result) public.”
On why he wants the former Lagos State governor to go for a medical test, the Labour Party chieftain said the 2023 election and who leads the country is about “the lives of millions of people”.
According to him, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo would have been a better and fitter presidential candidate for the ruling party.
“Our country has suffered so much from having ailing leaders. That was why I can say here, that was why the Vice President stepped up,” Utomi added.
Afenifere Endorsement Of Peter Obi
Pat Utomi also commended the Yoruba socio-cultural group Afenifere for restating its support for Peter Obi.
He stated that Afenifere is on the right track as he dismissed insinuations that Afenifere does not pull political weight.
