Tinubu dubs Atiku liar, Obi, betrayer
…promises to work with Soludo
Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Tuesday, threw jabs at his fellow contestants, Atiku Abubakar of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of Labour Party (LP), describing them as a liar and a betrayer respectively.
Tinubu said: “We are not like PDP that forgot your rail line. They are liars. When you hear Atiku use the word and say ‘walahi talahi’, what is in his head is “na lie I lie”. Anytime you hear him say Walahi talahi, just reply and say, “na lie I lie”.
“The man who left here, he calls himself Peter Obi. We read in the bible that before the cock crows, he will deny Jesus Christ. Is it not true? So, how can he keep his promise to you? He cannot prove a point. Has Bola Tinubu not proved a point? Did I close any market? Did I kill anyone? I’m a thinker and a doer, I even tamed the Atlantic.”
Tinubu insisted that he was the only one who has been able to establish a track record of success, with verifiable projects as governor of Lagos State.
The candidate eulogised Soludo, saying, “Soludo your son is not contesting with me or against me. He is a brilliant man, he has the brain, he is a thinker; he knows the way. We will work together. When I become the president, Soludo will be one of those advisers who will bring prosperity back to you. So the way you voted for Soludo is the way you will vote for Bola Tinubu.”
Speaking on his promises for the people of Anambra State, Tinubu said: “You want to make Anambra a highly dependable state right? That is the memory of my dear friend Chuba Okadigbo. That is what we will continue to carry on – the joy of Chuba Okadigbo.
“Youths of Anambra, I’m here today to concretise the promise of development that will promise you restoration and industrialisation.
“You know Tinubu, the city boy of Lagos? You know I had the Atlantic tamed in Lagos. The way we tamed the Atlantic Ocean is the same way we will tame the erosion in the eastern region. We will tame the erosion. We will make the value of your property worth more than 1,000 times of your investment.
“We will create jobs for our youths. We will industrialise and make Anambra both the economic city and the economic centre of Nigeria. Your resources will be applied to create handwork and hard work, better paying jobs.
“We are not like the other parties that come here to lie to you. Tell them when they bring their lie, ask them how long will it take to travel from Port Harcourt to Onitsha, Onitsha to Aba?
“You see their lies, for 16 years, PDP lied that they will give industrialisation, but instead they sold our assets to themselves and they called it privatisation. They privatised the industry to their pockets.
“The hour has come; your PVC is the master, the voice of commandment. Atiku said he is the candidate of the north. Is that not a division among us? Anambra people lived well in prosperity and joy with me in Lagos. I started paying WAEC fees, I didn’t discriminate whether you are Igbo, Christian or anybody; I paid for everybody.”
Margery Okadigbo, the director-general of the APC presidential campaign council, who spoke at the rally, said the massive attendance was indicative of the love the people of the state have for Tinubu, and that they were ready to vote for him during the election.
