The Spokesman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State, Mr Tunde Ashaolu, has lambasted the National Publicity Secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena saying he is a depreciation of the standards that should not be associated with a ruling party.
In a statement in Ilorin yesterday, Ashaolu stated that Nabena represents a new low for the APC, highlighting the fact that the spokesman does not have the necessary educational or political qualifications to hold such a position and that “this is why he continues to embarrass his party.”
“People who know Nabena know that he does not have the necessary pedigree, experience or qualifications to hold such a crucial position. What are his professional and political antecedents? Who knew him before he became the Acting Publicity Secretary?
“This man continues to embarrass the APC and himself through his juvenile press statements and tweets. I mean, for those of us who have been at this level, even at the state level, we know that it takes a certain degree of level and clear headedness to perform effectively as a Party Spokesman. That position is meant for achievers who have done well in their respective professions, not for an upstart like Yekinni Nabena.
The PDP State Publicity Secretary further called on Nabena to stop being a Masquerade and accept the challenge to debate with one of the Senate President’s aides on live television.
“Saraki’s aides have challenged him. He should stop being a masquerade and come out of hiding. Let him accept the challenge and tell the Nigerian people how he and his party have failed all Nigerians. He cannot continue to hide behind Press Statements which are authored from Lagos for him. He should come out and give a face and verbal expressions to these statements in public,” Ashaolu stated.
