As the general election draws closer, the All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain Adamu Garba has accused some presidential candidates of playing regional cards.
He made the accusation in a series of tweets where he accused the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi of playing the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, agenda.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar of playing the Northern card, while the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, Rabiu Kwankwaso is playing the Northwest card.
He, however, affirmed that it’s only APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu was playing the national card.
He wrote: “Atiku is playing the Northern card, Kwankwaso is playing the North West card, Peter Obi is playing the IPOB agenda card.
“But Tinubu is playing the national card. Tinubu is the only Presidential candidate with a national spread. You only win the Nigerian Presidency with a national card.
“If regional hegemony can win the Presidential election, Buhari would have been the President since 2003. God bless our forefathers for a nationalist constitution that encourages spread.
” It is, therefore, very clear, that Bola Tinubu is the next President of Nigeria. Vote for APC.
“As a nationalist, I’ll only go with a nationalist candidate of a national party, the APC. I’ll definitely Vote for APC.
