The chief Spokesperson of the Labour Party, (LP), presidential campaign council, Yunusa Tanko has indicated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s speech on grabbing political power could serve as a recipe for violence in 2023 elections 

Tinubu spoke of power grabbing in London restaurant while addressing his supporters in the diaspora and the video is in the public domain.

Tanko spoke with newsmen in Abuja over the implication of the speech where Tinubu declared that political power should be “grabbed and you run away with it. 
“This coming from a presidential candidate that is too unpresidential, how can a man who wants to govern over 200million Nigerians use such words,Tanko wondered. 
“I don’t think it’s appropriate to go to a civilised clime and start talking about power grabbing in a UK restaurant for that matter and I very much doubt whether the APC presidential candidate has even bothered to sign the peace accord for 2003 polls. 
“If he has done it, then his utterances of grabbing power at all cost is uncalled for because this is capable of making his supporters have that mindset on using violence to get votes. 
“Elections must be conducted in violence free environment and Tinubu saying things like this is really unpalatable barely three months to the presidential election. 
“It’s saddening to hear one of us the most experienced politician in Nigeria talking in this manner and people were clapping and hailing him.
