Legit.ng gathers that Tinubu spoke on Wednesday, August 8, at the formal defection of ex-Senate minority leader, Godswill Akpabio, at a packed Ikot Ekpene township stadium in Akwa Ibom.

He described what is happening in the country now as a war between progressives and the conservatives.

“We believe in government of the people, for the people and by the people; but the conservatives believe in government of sharing.

“We say Nigerian money belongs to Nigerians. We say Nigerians must be given development. We believe in investing in the people, but they believe in sharing and looting the money.

“Today we are aspiring in our vision, but the PDP has no vision. They believe in sharing and looting the treasury," he said.

Nigerians, he said, gave PDP 16 years to rule but the party failed.

He added: “Today, Buhari says we must change; we must account for Nigeria’s money, but they are resisting.’’

He expressed happiness that Akwa Ibom had embraced the change of Buhari.

According to Tinubu, with the present posture of the state, it “shall sweep the evil out with the broom’’.

Quoting the Bible, Tinubu, a Muslim said: “The people in the city shall be swept away with brooms.’’

He praised the wife of Akpabio, Ekaete, for her resilience and steadfastness in her support for her husband.

The secretary to the government of the federation, Boss Mustapha, who represented Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, told the people of President Muhammadu Buhari’s love for them.

He said that the facts on ground support the agitation for the return of Buhari in 2019.

He explained that of the 36 ministers, 18 were Muslims and 18 Christians; with the Christians holding many important positions.

Mustapha, a Christian, explained that Vice President Osinbajo is a pastor. He named other key members of the government who are Christians to include the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria; the ministers of finance, petroleum, national planning; as well as the party’s national chairman.

He said that Buhari was the only candidate who could generate 10 million votes; unlike others that could not boast of 800 votes.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu's alleged continued silence on the gale of defections rocking the APC, was causing disquiet in the Presidency, especially among loyalists of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Some of the Presidency sources said that loyalists of President Buhari were unhappy that Tinubu, who was appointed by the president to head the party’s reconciliation team, had not uttered a word since the defections began.
