Tinubu blasts Atiku, says Wike was right all along
According to the APC flagbearer, River State Governor Nyesom Wike was right after all when he declared that Atiku had no integrity.
He accused Atiku of establishing a university too expensive for Nigerians to attend while in office as Vice President.
Tinubu said he has continued to refute the lies concerning his health by his continuous participation in the campaigns, the most rigorous of all the political parties.
“We can make Nigeria better, safer, and more prosperous. We can educate our youth, feed our people and put an end to fear. We can do these things. We can move you forward.
“But the others cannot. They want to hold you back so that only they can move forward. They offer nothing but fake promises and easy answers that hold no water. All they can show you is how to hate your fellow Nigerian and reject your neighbour.
“But they cannot show you how to protect our society, feed our people, provide jobs and care for those in true need of help.
“Neither he nor his party can keep their promise. Tell me how will they keep their promise to the nation. No wonder, their party is in tatters! Governor Wike was right when he talked about a lack of integrity, saying “look at the man and his history.”
Speaking specifically about Kano, Tinubu promised to consolidate the gains recorded in the agriculture sector.
