I was invited by the Democratic Party-Tinubu

Former governor of Lagos state and Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) chieftain, senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has  spoke on his attendance of the Democratic Party Convention in the United States of America.

Controversy had trailed his attendance, as allegations had been that he bought the invitation to attend the convention.

The former governor spoke to journalists upon arrival in Lagos on the issue and the coming elections in Ondo state, one in which his party, the ACN, is keenly interested.

Tinubu said “I was invited properly… and as an honoured guest position”

He queried why the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) will ask him to prove that he was invited “ Who are they that I have need to prove anything to them.., I was there and what is their business”.

The PDP had in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh said “The usual desperation of Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his Party to court attention at all cost has taken an international dimension. This time, Senator Tinubu who prides himself as the National Leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has been basking in a delusory frenzy of being ‘specially invited’ to the just concluded Democratic National Convention which held in Charllotte, North Carolina in the United States of America.”

The statement further  said “While Tinubu and his co-travelers are still humouring themselves on being recognized in the international circle as leaders of opposition for attending the convention, it has since been revealed that the man actually laboured vigorously to purchase his invitation.”

    I have nothing against Tinubu attending the just concluded Democratic National convention.  My question is Of what use was his attendance?  Is he going to bring to Nigeria the good order the americans bring into thier government?  Will he demonstrate the kind of openness they practice here in America?  Is he bold enough to play all his cards face up? Why does he have to say noone has the right to ask him to prove how he got invited to the convention.  Obama and everyone in office were probed before they got into office.  What has he brought to Nigeria with him by way of change in the way our economy is being managed?  Not until then I consider his attendance as waste of time, money and energy and I also call it Se k’a rimi.

    Yes, Bola. We read you were invited. We also read from your guy that it was in recognition of your position as the leader of the Opposition . Golden ticket, ring side seats, blah blah blah. You just be cool… there are still a number of people that go for that kind of thing. Makes them believe you are the best thing since sliced bread.

    Maybe some people are just feeling upset about the way you played it you know… Making it look like you were the ingredient the DNC was missing.. Maybe they felt that it was another one of your moves that has no substance. Just noise. They’ll get over it. But you can quicken the process by getting Lai to whip up another one of those shallow controversies and smear the stories across the Web.
