Behave like a statesman, MCO counsels Tinubu

…asks him to remove his thugs

The leader of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Senator Bola Tinubu has been advised to behave like a statesman worthy of the toga of the national leader of a political party rather than behaving like a common street boy in his manners and utterances.

The Mimiko Campaign Organisation (MCO) which gave this advise in Akure on Monday following what it termed as unwarranted verbal attacks of the ACN leader against the person of the Ondo State Governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko, expressed regret that so-called leaders could employ the use of raw and dirty language that even area boys would naturally flinch from in trying to cast aspersion of the person of the Governor.

This is just as the MCO cried out over the fracas that happened during the ACN rally and the arrest of some of ACN thugs by police with guns and other dangerous weapons.

It enjoined Tinubu to take along with him his legions of armed thugs when he is leaving the State, saying most of those who attended the rally were thugs imported from other states brought for sinister purpose.

 The MCO’s Director of Publicity and Media Relations, Mr Kolawole Olabisi while berating Tinubu who he reminded has chosen to forget that his cloudy pedigree and track records were in the open and properly documented wondered what his party, the ACN, has to offer the people of Ondo State following the fiasco of governance in all the ACCN controlled States in the South West.

“Pray, isn’t it absurd that Tinubu could be asking the people to vote for his party when all over the South West where he controls, governance is at it lowest ebb. It has been strikes galore as workers and government are at loggerhead over unpaid salaries and emoluments. Students of higher institutions are groaning while they pay through their noses. Yet, they say they want to capture Ondo State which is better governed than any of these states and has become a benchmark in the art of good governance in Nigeria.

“When so-called leaders dance naked on national television and unleash verbal abuses on a sitting Governor of a state who has chon nothing but high sense of respect for him as well as assault the sensibility of the people of Ondo State, then such leaders should be prepared to be disgraced.

“How can a leader also ask the people of Ondo State to re-enact the terrible episode of the 1983 election violence if his party should lose the election? We urged the security operatives to be abreast of all the vituperation and pure incitement of the people by Tinubu and other leaders of the ACN at today’s so-called redemption rally of their and take note of unfolding events as the election approaches, “ MCO advised.
