A group, the Bola Tinubu Ambassadors (BTA) has insisted that the Plateau State Governor, Mr. Solomon Lalong should apologise to the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu over his recent comments on the governorship poll in Ondo State.
Lalong who is also the Chairman Ondo State APC campaign committee, according to the group must tender an unreserved public apology to Tinubu and his followers over his claim that Tinubu’s absence at last Saturday Governorship Rally was as a result of his ill-health.
In a statement released on Wednesday in Lagos by the group’s Director and National Leader, Oluomo Akanbi A. S Afonja, the group said the claim by Lalong was no doubt a political propaganda to downgrade Bola Tinubu and his genuine followers.
“How can a sitting APC Governor just walk down to the press only to speak about what he is not certain or sure of. It is absolutely a huge disappointment to himself, the people of the state he is governing, the APC Governor’s Forum and the Apc Ondo State Governorship Candidate also.
“We expect Mr Lalong to have reached out to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu or any of his aides for proper confirmation on why he was absent at the Rally instead of making a very wrong, disappointing, disgraceful and such a ridiculous statement publicly.
“We understand their many negative wishes for Tinubu, but so sad, just few has realised he is a God-sent. Stop wishing Tinubu Bad, he is created already and nothing on this earth can un-create him except the Almighty God.”
