A civil society organization has accused the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu of being insincere in his comments over the health challenges of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The group said Tinubu's comment condemning Buhari detractors lack emotional depth.
In a statement released on Tuesday, May 9, by the president of the National Forum Democrats (NFD) Gambo Dambatta, the group said it is not impressed by the APC leaders remarks.

NAIJ.com gathered that Dambatta also called for an apology from Tinubu over various comments the APC national leader has made against President Buhari.
He said Tinubu can only be taken seriously when he apologizes to President Buhari for other ill comments against him and some of the party's leadership.
Dambatta said: “Instead of thinking that he can take the whole country for a ride, the APC leader should do the needful by apologizing to the President and Nigerians before he can be taken seriously."
“His last statement on Buhari is just a smokescreen to cover his retreat and surrender approach. We will welcome the repentance and wish he is able to move it a step forward with a mass solidarity rally for the President as was done against him under his watchful eyes," Dambatta added.
Tinubu in a statement had said that Nigeria was in a good shape and that the president's ill health does not affect the affairs of the nation.
