The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The Former Lagos governor spoke in Yoruba language at the APC Presidential Campaign rally held at the MKO Abiola International Stadium in Abeokuta on Wednesday, January 25.
Tinubu accused the Buhari-led government of creating unnecessary hardships with naira re-design and fuel crisis to sabotage victory at the next month’s presidential election.
He also said that some unnamed members of a cabal within the presidency and APC of northern extraction had begun scheming to discredit him, as a ploy to have another northern president replace Buhari after eight years in power.
“They don’t want this election to hold. They want to sabotage it (elections). Will you allow them?”, Tinubu asked the teeming supporters at the rally, to which they responded “No.”
The APC presidential candidate, however, encouraged Nigerians to defy the fuel scarcity to exercise their franchise that will usher in a new government in the country.
Tinubu vowed that “we will use PVC to take over the government from them,” just as he pointed out that the forthcoming polls would be a “superior revolution.”
Hw said, “Even if they said there is no fuel, we will trek to vote. They have a lot of mischief; they could say there is no fuel. They have been scheming to create fuel crisis, but forget about it.
“Relax, I, Asiwaju, have told you that the issue of fuel supply will be permanently addressed. Whoever wants to eat the honey embedded in a mountain won’t worry about the axe. Is that not so? And if you want to eat palm kernel, you would bring stone and use it to break it, then the kernel will come out. It’s not easy to…
“Let them increase the price of fuel, only them know where they have hoarded fuel, they hoarded money, they hoarded naira; we will go and vote and we will win. Even if they changed the ink on Naira notes. Whatever their plans, it will come to nought. We are going to win. Those in the PDP will lose (won ma lule).
“I am homeboy (youth), I have come here, you will not be put to shame, we will take over the government from them, the traitors who wanted to contest with us. They had no experience.
“The great Nigerian youths, the great Nigerian students, the confident Nigerian youths. This is a revolution. This election is a revolution. They are plotting, but they will fail. They said fuel price will increase and reach N200 per litre. Go and relax. They don’t want this election to be held, they want to scuttle it. Will you allow them?”
KanyiDaily recalls that Bola Tinubu had previously lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari while bragging about his political effort that made him president in 2015.
