The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has described his Labour Party opponent, Peter Obi, as a stingy man who boasts of saving money while his people starve.
Tinubu said this while addressing the crowd during the Ondo state rally at Democracy Park, Akure, the state capital on Saturday, according to Vanguard.
Tinubu said only a wicked parent would claim to save money for a child’s future while the same goes hungry today, this he said, describing Obi.
He said, “He [Obi] cares little that his policies and actions have a chance to show how progressive he could be when he was the governor of Anambra State. All he could do was boast that he saved money – I don’t know how much.
“But I tell you, it is a wicked parent like Obi, given the opportunity to feed his children, invest in tomorrow on their behalf and hold money in his hands while the children starve and go to bed hungry. That is Obi wickedness.
“In the end, he refused to save the people because he preferred to save the money and he claimed to be a party labour (sic). Is that labour? You will have to be labouring under a terrible delusion if you think he will do a better job for this nation than he did for Anambra State.
“What is there to be proud of? After Obi left, Obi has nothing to be proud of. Instead, Obi moved, left Anambra crying. He moved to Lagos. Obi! Obi! Import and export. Warehouse economist. Obi, why did you do that?
“You now ran away to Labour. What kind of Labour? It means you have no understanding of what it means. When they talk of dignity of labour, instead [of him] to save the people, instead he saved the money. I am indeed very sorry.”
