Rights activist Shehu Mahdi has cast doubt on the 2023 ambition of former Lagos Governor Bola Tinubu.
The outspoken northerner said the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) could not be trusted.
Commenting on a video showing Tinubu addressing a gathering of female party leaders and members in Abuja, Mahdi said.
“The assurance is there, the promise is there, the prosperity is there, the health is there, the security is there… banditry has come to an end,” the APC flagbearer said.
Mahdi, a supporter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Atiku Abubakar, then said Tinubu’s supporters would be disappointed.
“If you believe BAT, you can believe anything. Everything about him is shrouded in a cloak of doubt, distrust and uncertainty.
“A big disappointment by Tinubu awaits those who believe him,” Mahdi tweeted on Thursday.
The Katsina-born commentator had recently hit the headlines for advising Christians in the north not to vote for candidates from the south.
Mahdi claimed that a vote for Peter Obi, the top Labour Party (LP) candidate, would be tantamount to supporting secessionist efforts for Biafra.
