2023 elections: Our rivals do not have shame – Tinubu
Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, was in Warri Delta State to campaign for next year’s election, saying the ruling party brings prosperity to the state and the country.
Tinubu spoke at the start of the APC campaign in the oil-rich state on Saturday.
“Go to Lagos State and see development and records of beautiful people. Hope is here, development is here, progress is here, Omo-Agege is here and prosperity is here,” the former Lagos State governor added.
“I will fullfil my promises to you. You are the future of this country. Your dreams will be realised for a stable and united Nigeria,” he told the gathering at the Warri Township Stadium.
He accused the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of underdevelopment in Delta State, claiming that the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, fought former President Olusegun Obasanjo while he was vice president.
“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?” he asked.
“Our rivals do not have shame as they are fighting in public. How can they think of good governance?”
Tinubu was not the only speaker at the event. Ovie Omo-Agege, the party’s governorship candidate in the state, also accused Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of betraying Southern Nigeria by accepting the position of running mate.
According to the Deputy Senate President, President Muhammadu Buhari of Katsina should be succeeded in May by a southerner.
He claimed Okowa is a “modern-day Judas Iscariot” who “should resign immediately from Atiku Abubakar’s ticket.”
