A pro-Bola Tinubu coalition, the Support Groups Management Council, has released a statement over a video of the All Progressives Congress, APC, national leader’s wet dress.
The group in their statement says it is the work of mischief-makers which was manipulated, insisting that the APC national leader is healthy and ready to challenge and win the 2023 presidential election.
The Jagaban of Lagos visited some top traditional rulers in Ogun State, including the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, on Saturday.
After the visitations, a video of the former Lagos State Governor in a wet dress around his lower region surfaced on social media.
However, the coalition, in a statement signed by its Director of Media and Publicity, Biodun Ajiboye, described the claim as false and a malicious.
“This time it is that he wetted his dress! “Assuming without conceding that is the case, so is it the back of his knees that would be wet and not the bum area? So if he wetted his babariga, he would not cover it and would still move to be flat to greet the Awujale of Ijebuland in the full glare of everyone present?” The coalition wondered.
“It was the usual photoshop manipulations and shallow mental agility that pushed them to dispense a feeble narrative that made no iota of sense.
“Yet as their video showed, it was after their wetting incident that he went ahead and prostrated to Kabiyesi,” the group said.
According to them, this was another way to distract their presidential aspirant, which will amount to nothing, adding that Tinubu has his leg on the throttle and there is no going back.
“We want to assure Nigerians that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is healthy and strong enough to undertake the responsibilities involved in the expected rigours of campaigns and politicking when the time comes,” they maintained
