The presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has alleged that the current fuel and new naira scarcity ravaging the citizens is in a bid to postpone the forthcoming general elections.
Addressing a mammoth crowd at the APC presidential rally on Friday at the Ekiti Parapo Pavilion in Ado Ekiti, Tinubu urged Nigerians not to fall for the antics of enemies of democracy.
He said, “They are hoarding naira so that you can be angry and fight. They want confusion so that the election can be postponed. What they want is an interim government but we are wiser than them. We will not fight. Any rat that eats rat poison will end up killing itself.
“I am in the race for the betterment of the people. If it is what I will eat and what I need personally, God has provided for me. I am in this race to make life good and better for you too.
“Ekiti people are well educated people. They are well read; they don’t joke with education. But it is not good to finish schooling and not get a job. So, we shall provide jobs for you.
“On that day, we will trek to the polling booths to cast our votes. Your polling booths are not far from where you live. So, you should walk down to cast your votes.”
Earlier in his remarks, the Ekiti State governor, Abiodun Oyebanji, said that the party needed little or no campaign for Tinubu because the people of the state would reward him with their votes for his good deeds.
Oyebanji said, “We don’t need to campaign much for Tinubu. We have all agreed to vote for him. We want to pay him back for all his good work for Ekiti.
“We will return home and like Jehovah’s Witnesses, tell our people that it is Tinubu that can do it. Tell our people to collect their PVCs, whoever does not have PVC is not a friend of Tinubu.”
