The presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has accused Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar of fighting his principal, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, while serving as Nigeria’s vice president.
PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar served as Vice President in Obasanjo’s administration from 1999 to 2007.
However, Tinubu, speaking at the launch of the Delta APC governorship campaign in Warri on Saturday, claimed that Atiku fought Obasanjo during their tenure.
He stated, “Our rivals do not have shame. They are fighting in the public, how can they think of governance?
“When Atiku was there, he was fighting his boss in public. They were telling us how they spent money to buy cars for their girlfriends. Do they have shame? Will you vote for them again?, Tinubu told the crowd of supporters.
Tinubu assured that the APC will deliver its promises to Nigerians if the party wins next year’s elections as he redoubled his accusation that the PDP failed the country.
“I will commit to your progress and fulfill all the promises made to you. You are the future of this country and the heart and soul of Nigeria.
“Your environment is as important as gold mining. Your health, welfare, and dream will be realised for a stable and prosperous Nigeria,” Tinubu stated.
The campaign flag-off was attended by APC chieftains such as the party’s vice presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima; Senate President Ahmed Lawan; Imo State Governor Hope Uzodimma; Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong; the party’s Deputy National Chairman (South), Emma Eneukwu; and a former Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole, among others.
