- Says don’t entrust your future to Mr Sell Everything Atiku or Mr Stingy Obi, Tinubu to Ondo Residents
The All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Saturday attacked the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and his Labour Party counterpart, Mr Peter Obi, calling them unpredictable names.
Tinubu, while addressing Ondo State residents at the APC’s presidential campaign flag-off in Akure, the state capital, lambasted Atiku and Obi and urged the people of the state not to vote for them.
According to him, “Atiku would sell their birthright to the highest bidder and run off with the proceeds while he described Obi as a wicked parent that holds money in his hand yet allows his children to starve.
The rally, which attracted a big crowd was attended among others by Governors Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), former Osun State governor, Gboyega Oyetola, and APC National Secretary Senator Iyiola Omisore who represented National Chairman Senator Abdullahi Adamu.
The APC candidate 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, Asíwájú Tinubu said the PDP candidate could not do it.
“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.”
On the Labour Party candidate, Tinubu said Obi had a chance to show how progressive he could be when he was governor of Anambra State.
“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.
“Likewise, it is a heartless governor who holds back money when people went hungry, schools, road and clinics went into disrepair. Neither the city-dweller nor farmer prospered under him.
“In the end, he refused to save the people because he preferred to save the money. And he claims to be the party of labour. You will have to be labouring under a terrible delusion if you think he will do better for the nation than he did for Anambra State. Buyers beware of salesmen selling fake merchandise.
“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!“
