The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate for the 2023 election, Bola Tinubu, on Thursday urged the electorate ‘not to be deceived by the empty promises’ of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, saying he has nothing to offer.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that speaking in Yoruba at his campaign rally at the Freedom Park in Osogbo, Osun State, Tinubu said none of the other major candidates in this forthcoming election have the capacity, integrity, knowledge, or determination necessary to do what must be done.
“Only I, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, am prepared and up to the task of leading this country, our cherished homeland, back towards its best destiny,” Tinubu said.
“Be wary of the false messiah, Mr. Stingy, Peter Obi. This man’s promises are bold and his boasts are plentiful. Yet, when he was given the responsibility to lead just one state, he was overwhelmed by it.
“He could only stash away the money he was supposed to be using to develop the state. All the people of Anambra could hope for was that whoever came next would have better ideas.
“A governor is not a banker, expected to hold fast to his customer’s deposit. Obi was expected to build good roads, schools and hospitals. He was supposed to pay the salaries of Anambra doctors, teachers and civil servants. He was meant to nurture and empower new leaders.
“In eight years, he achieved none of these things. He is no visionary leader. He is the man who proudly buried his talents because he knew no better. This man who could not even understand the proper role of a governor cannot be trusted as the next president. Reject him,” he added
