The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has again lambasted the duo of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar, and his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi, ahead of the February 25 election.
Tinubu who spoke at the party’s presidential campaign rally in Akure, on Saturday, January 7, 2022, said the two men cannot be trusted with the future of Nigerians.
He described the pair as “stingy man and Mr. Privatization” respectively
Tinubu also challenged the people of Ondo State to extend their support for APC to next month’s election.
The former Lagos State governor has been unrelenting in his criticism of Abubakar and Obi, regarded by many as his direct rivals in the election, since the commencement of APC’s campaign in October last year.
He said: “The truth of the difference between my leadership and that of Mr. Obi lies in one observation. Although Lagos is crowded and Anambra has ample space, more people left Obi’s Anambra seeking a better life in Tinubu’s Lagos than left Lagos believing Obi had established a blueprint for growth in Anambra.
“My people, you cannot entrust your future or that of our nation to Mr. Sell Everything Atiku or Mr. Stingy Obi. But you can trust Mr. Progressive Good Governance Tinubu!”
Earlier, Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, who described Ondo as a progressive state, urged the people to support the “Renewed Hope” agenda of the party through their votes in the forthcoming elections.
In his speech, Sen. Iyiola Omisore, the National Secretary of the party, urged voters to cast their votes for all candidates of the party.
Omisore stressed the need for continuity, both at the state and the national level, explaining that the APC-led government had done great work for the survival of the country.
He gave assurance thatif elected Tinubu would bring to the federation more achievements than he recorded in Lagos as a governor.
Ade Adetimehin, the state Chairman of APC, said that Ondo State was 100 per cent a progressive state
Adetimehin said that the party would deliver the state for Tinubu, stressing “no other state in the country, not even Lagos, will beat Ondo State in terms of percentage of votes for Tinubu in the forthcoming election.’’
He said that Akeredolu had given the party an order to win convincingly, pointing out that there was no division or faction in the state chapter of the party.
