Omoyele Sowore, the AAC’s presidential candidate, has criticized Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for pledging to reform internet fraudsters, popularly known as “Yahoo Boys,” by establishing technology hubs for them if they win next month’s election.
At a rally in Edo State on Thursday, Tinubu urged a sizable throng of supporters to vote for him if they desired wealth. The gathering was held at the University of Benin Sports Complex, Ugbowo.
The APC candidate, who identified himself as a competent man, promised to construct industrial and technological hubs to transform young people into tools for progress.
“I will convert Yahoo boys and make them useful by converting their talents and intellects to produce chips for industries. We can defeat poverty, ignorance and homelessness. We have the knowledge, we have the brain to do it. Trust me. I am an expert in finding the way where there is no way,” Tinubu had said.
@officialABAT has completely lost it! To think that no one in the “yahoo-yahoo” @OfficialAPCNg party conscientious enough to object to these absolute rubbishing is most disheartening. #WeCantContinueLikeThis https://t.co/ZkhpUtxg5t
