Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has claimed that Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) fought former President Olusegun Obasanjo when he served as his vice-president between 1999 and 2007.
He stated this while speaking during the inauguration of the Delta State APC governorship campaign in Warri on Saturday.
In his address, Tinubu reminded the people of Delta of the dearth of industries in the state, warning that voting for the ruling PDP in the state again would amount to continuation of 23 years of underdevelopment of Delta State.
Tinubu decried in strong terms the alleged downward trend of industrial development in Delta saying, “Warri is going down. They don’t know the way; they don’t have the vision, the brain, the knowledge, the road to prosperity.”
Vote for Omo-Agege
Tinubu spoke further, “Go to Lagos and see development and records of beautiful people. Hope is here, development is here, progress is here, Omo-Agege is here and prosperity is here.
“These people year after year; election after election, lie to you. They borrow money and celebrate market stalls. Where is the housing industry? Where is the opportunity to create jobs? They don’t have shame!
“Our rivals don’t have shame. They fight in public. How can they think governance?”
“When Atiku was there, he was fighting his boss in public. They were telling us how they spent PTF money to buy cars for their girlfriends. Do they have shame? Will you vote for them again?”
While maintaining that his electoral campaign promises would come to reality, Tinubu assured Nigerians, especially the youths that their dreams for a stable united Nigeria would be fulfilled.
“I will fulfil promises to you. You are the future of this country. Your dreams will be realised for a stable united Nigeria”, he declared.
