Ado Ekiti - All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Friday, February 3, alleged moves by some people in the corridor of power to foist an interim national government on Nigeria.

According to the former Lagos state governor, the plotters hope to achieve their objective by provoking Nigerians through the crisis arising from the naira notes redesign and the current fuel scarcity.

He said the plotters were working on the theory that the possible unrest sparked by the crisis would force the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the coming elections and proceed to install an interim national government.

He, however, urged Nigerians to remain steadfast, and refuse to be provoked to violence by the alleged plot, adding that he would emerge victorious in the forthcoming polls.

Tinubu who spoke in Yoruba told the audience that he is a true leader committed and dedicated to bring about the desired change in the governance.

The Nation quoted him as saying:

“Relax, this election is yours. You will use it to liberate yourselves. They want to turn us to slaves. We are not slaves. They locked up money. Trek to your poling units, vote and stay with your vote.
“I beg you in the name of God, this is not a matter for violence. Don’t fight them. Those who locked up your money will eventually unlock it.

“They’re doing it to get you angry, so that you can become violent; get the election postponed and install an interim government.”

Tinubu interested in the wellbeing of Nigerians - APC chieftain

On his part, a member of the National Working Committee of the APC, Tolu Bankole, on Friday, February 3, described Tinubu as a patriot interested in the wellbeing of the masses.

Punch reports that Bankole said Tinubu’s concern over the lingering fuel crisis and the scarcity of the new naira notes, depicted him as one not desperate to be president, adding that it is a show of commitment to a better Nigeria.
