Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has taken a swipe at former president, Olusegun Obasanjo and his Vice, Atiku Abubakar, stating that they had issues after embezzling the country's funds.
Tinubu spoke on Wednesday, at the Michael Okpara Square in Enugu during a presidential campaign rally of the APC.
Obasanjo had a few days ago endorsed Mr. Peter Obi of the Labour Party for the number one position in the country.
But in his speech, Tinubu said both Obasanjo, Atiku and his party, PDP, should be ashamed of themselves.
While hailing the President Muhammadu Buhari administration for completing the second Niger Bridge, Tinubu said, “They didn’t do it for 16 years, they chop your money, abused themselves.
“You know whom I am talking about? I don’t want to abuse them, but I can refer to something.
“OBJ and Atiku, when they finished chopping the money, they started abusing one another, you took much, I took much, they danced naked in Wuse Market in Abuja. Don’t believe them anymore.”
He urged the people of Enugu and the entire South-East to trust him with their votes, assuring that it would lead to economic boom in the area.
“As you pray, be ready to sacrifice for Nigeria. Here you are, if the federal government partners with you, if you elect me as the President and we work together, we can site the industrial hub for Enugu, industrial hub for Imo, for Ebonyi, Anambra, Abia, build seaports, fabricating engines.
“Enugu will become an industrial hub greater than before. There will be jobs for all of you. You have the edible mineral resources to propel economic recovery. You are all equally an agricultural powerhouse that can produce many cash crops, even before now you were producing flowers and exporting them. All you need is to partner with the federal government. Let’s work together.”
At the rally were Governors Dave Umahi and Hope Uzodinma of Ebonyi and Imo States, respectively, Senator Andy Uba, the Enugu State Chairman of APC, Barr. Ugo Agballah, the party’s guber candidate, Mr. Uche Nnaji, among others.
