“Tinubu Cannot Be Trusted,” declares Shehu Mahdi, PDP Chieftain



Shehu Mahdi, a rights activist and supporter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has stated that Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, cannot be trusted.
According to information provided by Akahi News, Mahdi made this statement in response to Tinubu’s speech at the inauguration of members of the women’s presidential campaign team led by his wife, Oluremi Tinubu.
Tinubu stated the following at the event earlier this week in Abuja:Banditry has ended, and assurance, promise, prosperity, health, and security are all present.
Mahdi, a fervent supporter of PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, said that Tinubu’s followers would be disappointed after the 2023 general elections in response to the comment made by the former governor of Lagos State.
“You can also believe anything if you believe BAT.surrounded by a cloud of uncertainty, doubt, and suspicion over everything.
Mahdi stated via Twitter, his microblogging platform, “Huge disappointment from Tinubu awaits those believing him.”
The commentator, who was born in Katsina, recently made headlines for advising Christians in the North not to vote for South African candidates.Mahdi claimed that voting for Labour Party (LP) standard bearer Peter Obi would indicate support for the Biafra secession movement.
The remarks were denounced by a number of organizations, including the Coalition of Northern Elders For Peace and National Unity (CNEFPNU) and the Conference Of Northern Christians And Minority (CNCM).
In September, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide demanded Mahdi’s arrest for claiming that a vote for Obi is a vote for Biafra.
The well-known activist had advised Christians in the North not to vote for a presidential candidate of southern descent in a video that went viral.
The activist, who was born in Katsina, says that voting for a Christian Southern candidate, especially the LP candidate, will be like voting for Biafra and a secessionist.
Mahdi also claimed that Northerners, Christians and Muslims alike, are subjected to religious discrimination in the South East, South West, and South-South.
In a statement that was made available to journalists, the national publicity secretary, Dr. Alex Ogbonnia, described Mahdi’s remarks about the LP candidate as “distasteful and capable of igniting ethnoreligious tensions across the country” in response to the occurrence.
Ogbonnia said that people who think like this are the “Pernicious incubus,” which had been holding the country back for a long time.
“Christian Southerners in the past willingly voted President Shehu Shagari, President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, and President Muhammadu Buhari on account of the manifestos they presented to the populace,” he reminded the activist of.
In addition, the group urged the federal government to detain and prosecute the activist to discourage others.
