The Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has warned Nigerians against voting the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and his Labour Party’s counterpart, Peter Obi.
He said Atiku wasn’t ready to do the brave and hard work required to build a better nation, but he would rather sell the nation’s asset to the highest bidder, while Obi would rather save money and allow the people to go hungry.
Tinubu, while speaking Saturday at Democracy Park in Akure during APC rally stated categorically that neither city-dwellers nor farmers prospered while Obi was the governor of Anambra state.
He said: “On February 25, I know you will be a champion of progressive politics again. That date represents for the nation and for each and every one of us an appointment with destiny.
“We not only must make that appointment, we must emerge from the appointment fully dedicated to creating a more prosperous, safer, tolerant and dynamic society.
“But these things do not come by accident.
These things are but some of the fruits that only progressive and democratic good governance can harvest. And that progressive governance can only be brought to you by someone who has governed in a progressive manner before.”
Taking a swipe at Atiku and Obi, Tinubu said the former Vice President care less that his policies and action would impoverish the people.
Tinubu added: “He doesn’t want to do the brave and hard work required to build a better nation. Instead, he would rather sell your birthright to the highest bidder and run off with the proceeds.
“He cares little that his policies and actions will impoverish you and leave you with nothing.”
The former Lagos state Governor stressed that Obi had a chance to show how progressive he could be when he was governor of Anambra State.
He stressed, “All he could do was boast that he saved money. But I tell you it is a wicked parent that holds money in his hand yet allows his children to starve.
