- Asiwaju Bola Tinubu warns Nigerians against voting for the PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar
- Asiwaju Tinubu alleges that Chief Obasanjo and Atiku have questions to answer over what happened to PTDF cash under their government
- Tinubu doubts Atiku's promise to create jobs as he calls the plan a 'container economy'
A leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has pleaded with Nigerians not to return the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to power so as not to bring back corruption.
Speaking at the presidential campaign rallies of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti and Ondo states, Tinubu mocked Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, a former president, and Atiku for allegedly running the nation’s economy aground during their time.
He declared that Obasanjo and Atiku have questions to answer concerning what happened to the Petroleum Trust Development Funds (PTDF), which was managed by the office of the vice president during their administration from 1999 to 2007.
“One who is always busy with contentious business says he is running it. What does he know? What he has propagated is their container economy.
“They want to come back and sell our commonwealth. They promised to create two million jobs for you and nobody has asked them how.
“The questions we should ask are: When they were there with Obasanjo, how many jobs did they create? How many times did Obasanjo say Atiku stole PTDF’s money?
“The answer he always gave was that his former boss too stole money. Is this the kind of person you want to vote for?
“Their actions to share the electricity company into GenCos and DisCos caused the hike in tariff and estimated billing.
“What is Atiku’s response and PDP’s? He said, ‘what is wrong if I share Nigeria’s resources with my friends?’ Is that what you want them to come back to do?” The Nation reported Tinubu as saying.
Legit.ng earlier reported that the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organization (PPCO) recently said its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is an established democrat, adding that comments from Asiwaju Bola Tinubu cannot detract that fact.
The PDP was replying Tinubu's scathing attacks on Atiku's recent 'State of the Nation' address where he accused President Muhammadu Buhari of dictatorship.
