APC issues stern warning to Arise TV, Pull out from Townhall meetings

The APC Presidential campaign council have shamelessly issued a stern warning to the Arise TV to avoid inviting their candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to their Townhall meeting series.

You’d recall that  Peter Obi, Ifeanyi Okowa, Kwamkwaso and others had attended the Arise TV Townhall meeting with Tinubu absent.

It’s also on record that Tinubu and Shettima also Pulled out from NTA Townhall meeting with Kadaria Ahmed.

It’s such a shame and a disrespect to Nigerians that someone seeking to be hired by Nigerians are issuing warning to Nigerians that they wouldn’t attend their job interview accept the one they organize by themselves… Such a shame!

Look at their shameless excuse and warning to the Arise tv crew below..

Our attention has been drawn to an advertisement by Arise News in connection with a Town Hall meeting scheduled for 4 December.

WE are surprised that the TV station listed our candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as a participant, when there was no prior consultation with him and his aides and no consent of the candidate obtained for the advertisement.

We deem this as professionally wrong and reckless.

No media organisation should arrogate to itself the right to railroad any candidate to fit into its own agenda.

As we said in an earlier statement, the busy and hectic campaign schedules of Asiwaju Tinubu will not permit him to honour all invitations from different radio and TV stations for debate and or Town Hall meetings hence our decision for him not to start with one media…

organisation and later ignore the others. In the absence of a unified and mutually acceptable all parties and all candidates platform, our candidate has been speaking directly to Nigerians, since President Muhammadu Buhari launched Tinubu’s Action Plan for a Better Nigeria.

Till date, over seven town hall meetings with strategic sectors have been held across the geopolitical zones, where the candidate and his running mate have spoken about their programmes.

These direct engagements will continue before the election on 25 February 2023.

We therefore urge Arise News to stop using our candidate’s name or portrait in its advertisement, forthwith.

This is an affront to Arise tv and more so to Nigerians…. I hope Reuben Abati is reading this… So he would understand that APC is a cult of evil and greedy looters he shouldn’t ever defend any day..
