Emmanuel who wondered if anyone can come to Lagos, insult Tinubu, and leave in one piece, stated that for peace to reign, he will hold himself from replying to the former governor because it is not in his character.

The governor added that despite getting the state's infrastructure for his campaign, Tinubu still has the effrontery to insult the government and people of Akwa Ibom.

Claiming that Atiku Abubakar, unlike Tinubu, does not badmouth people in his presidential campaign rallies, the governor said:

“I also go to other states, and if you watch our campaigns, my principal (Atiku Abubakar) has never spoken about any Governor, he has never spoken openly about Asiwaju before.”

He went on to state there is nothing like emi lo kan and wondered what makes Tinubu confident that he has the capacity to lead Nigeria, Nigerian Tribune reports.
