Emi Lo Kan: Peter Obi blasts Tinubu says Nigerian presidency not turn by turn

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, has said the Nigerian presidency is not about turn by turn.

Referring to his counterpart of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu who had been popular with the Yoruba slogan “Emilokan” (It is my turn) he said if it were about turn, then people in the South-East region should be considered. 

Peter Obi was subtly referring to Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) who had been popular with the Yoruba slogan “Emilokan” (It is my turn) prior to his winning the ruling party’s presidential primary.

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, has said the Nigerian presidency is not about turn, but about capacity, adding that if it were about turn, then people in the South-East region should be considered.

Obi was subtly referring to Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) who had been popular with the Yoruba slogan “Emilokan” (It is my turn) prior to his winning the ruling party’s presidential primary.

The former Anambra Governor stated this at the All Saints Cathedral Field, Onitsha, Anambra State, before a crowd of supporters and party faithful as part of his nationwide campaign.

He also met with Anambra Traditional Rulers and other stakeholders at the Government House, Awka.

The LP candidate noted that his government would negotiate with all the separatist movements, particularly the Biafra Republic agitators, to unite the country.

He said, “The presidency is not about turn, but about capacity because if it is about turn, people like us would insist that it is our turn and should be considered.

“The job of a President is not a retirement home or for any kind of settlement but about uniting and rebuilding the country.

“They said that I am a stingy man and I say they didn’t say that I am extravagant or that I embezzled public funds only that I am stingy and I tell you the job and the Presidency of our country needs a stingy person.”

He said, “All we are coming to do is to end suffering and build a new Nigeria. In Nigeria today, nobody is safe, and families are begging to eat. We will secure and unite Nigeria.

“What I did in Anambra, I will do in Nigeria. We will negotiate, but whoever refuses, we will tell him there is a government. Anambra is a trading and manufacturing city, we will support all businesses. We will do same in Lagos, Kano, Kaduna and Borno. Every part of Nigeria will be productive.

“We will open roads. Any tarred road you see in Onitsha was tarred by me. I built the best road network in Nigeria. Those who left Nigeria will come back; we will face exportation to stabilise and reverse the dwindling fortunes of the naira if we assume power.

“There is no combination between us and others, if you have not created wealth, you cannot manage it. Datti and I are businessmen. The only way Nigeria can change is to hand it over to wealth creators.”

Yusuf Datti, Obi’s running mate, stated that he chose to work with Obi because he believed in justice, equality, and fairness.

He urged Nigerians to hold them accountable if they failed to keep their promises, insisting that the February 25 election had been won.

Mrs Margret Obi, the wife of LP candidate, urged eligible voters to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards, describing them as “weapons” for voting out bad leaders.
