The group, through its spokesman, Segun Dipe, described Tinubu as the unshakable pillar of the party in the South-western part of Nigeria.

“Making such disparaging statement as he did about the party he aspires to join and its national leader is quite unfortunate, a misadventure, mischievous and a misnomer. We are not in PDP where there is no respect for leaders and elders,” the group said.
It urged Aluko to remind himself that the recent achievement of Tinubu will forever remain very fresh in the memory of every Nigerian and should not have warranted such disparagement from him or anyone.
