Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress asserted that Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, does not understand the path to take as Nigeria’s president.
Speaking during the APC presidential campaign flag-off today (Tuesday) at the Rawang Pam Township Stadium in Jos, Plateau State, Tinubu made this claim.
He said, “Peter obi, Haaa! This Obidient. He lives in Lagos not in Anambra. He doesn’t know the road. We will return him to Anambra. We will chart him a new course.”
Obi will be returned to Anambra state in 2023, according to the APC presidential candidate, who claimed that the Labour Party candidate resides in Lagos.
But Tinubu assured Nigerians that there is still hope and that even in the face of adversity, Nigeria will survive.
He said, “ Hope is back, Nigeria will be well. Nigeria will not sink. We hereby reaffirm our commitment to progressive good governance.”
President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President Ahmed Lawan, the APC governors, and other national party stakeholders were present for the flag-off.
While the APC Presidential campaign flag-off is taking place in Jos, supportive messages keep coming in.
All of the governors who spoke, including Yahaya Bello of Kogi, Ben Ayade of Cross River, Mohammed Badaru of Jigawa, Mai Mala Buni of Yobe, and Nasiru El-Rufai of Kaduna, vowed to work for the party’s success and urged supporters to do the same.
Heavy security personnel were present for the event, although they struggled to keep the crowd under control. Idris Maje, the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, had to step in to get things under control.
In the presence of Hajia Nana Shettima, Senator Remi Tinubu reassured women and youth that they will be involved in governance and that they have nothing to fear when casting their votes for the Party in 2023.
Tinubu stated, “God will make our nation greater than what is being seen…, there will be food, there will be jobs…”
Isa Aremu added that the APC is a labor-friendly party because the President did not lay off any employees despite the recession; as a result, the labor movement supports Tinubu and is confident in his ability to create good jobs.
In his remarks, Senator Joshua Dariye expressed confidence that the successes of 2015 and 2019 would be repeated.
