The APC presidential candidate said while Obi is banking on Anambra votes just because he is from the state, his time as Lagos state governor showed that he is a detribalised Nigerian who doesn’t judge people based on their tribe or religion.
“Reject the darkness of bigotry and hate. Reject those who think they are so superior to you that they think the public’s money is to be spent on themselves or to hidden away in some distant land instead of investing it to improve the daily wellbeing of the people.
“This election is not some popularity contest. This is not big brother Nigeria. This election is about who can make Nigeria bigger, greater and stronger by leading and treating each other as brothers," he said.
Why Peter Obi is not living in Anambra - Tinubu
Tinubu said, as former Lagos governor, he resides in the state, unlike Obi, who allegedly lives in Lagos after ruling Anambra for eight years.
According to him, Obi could not live among the Anambra people because he feels guilty for not developing the state.
Speaking further on his achievements as Lagos state governor, Tinubu said:
“I know I can do these things because I made similar progress when governor of Lagos. Meanwhile, one of my opponents is a former governor of your state. But he does not live among you. He lives in Lagos.
“I live in Lagos because I am pleased with the progress we made in turning Lagos into one of Africa’s biggest economies. My opponent however, refuses to live among you because he feels guilty for not giving you the development and growth you deserved from him.
“Mr. Stingy refused to use the state’s money to help its people. He sacrificed your welfare and wellbeing so that he can boast that he saved money. But what good is saving money if you refuse to save your own people.
“That type of man is a danger to those unfortunate enough to be subject to his misrule. Such a man was ill equipped to be your governor. Do not make him your president.
“Instead, let the light of this nation shine on the progressive path we set before you.”
Tinubu added that his government will create jobs for those who live in Awka and in other southeastern cities, thereby improving their daily lives.
“My government will create agricultural hubs as well that will offer more and better paying employment while also producing more food for our kitchen tables,” he added.
He also promised to reform the education sector.
