Olusegun Obasanjo is not qualified to suggest or endorse anyone as President of Nigeria, according to Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, “because of his failures.”
Speaking at the APC Presidential Campaign rally at the University of Benin Sports Complex, Ugbowo Campus, Benin, Edo State, the APC flag-bearer claimed that when Obasanjo had the chance to develop the nation, he instead chose to fight his then Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, accusing each other of using public funds for their own comfort.
After spending $16 billion on electricity, according to Tinubu, Obasanjo and the PDP administration were unable to provide enough power for Nigerians to even make popcorn.
When he was governor of Lagos, Tinubu remembered bringing in Enron Power to produce electricity and address the power issue in the country’s commercial hub, but the project was stymied by the Obasanjo-led PDP administration.
“I brought in Enron to help the Lagos economy and solve the electrical crisis, but Obasanjo and the PDP sabotaged it,” he said. They penalized me and the residents of Lagos and even started taking our money.
“I established Local Governments in Lagos to promote economic growth and provide jobs for the populace, but Obasanjo seized our funding and punished us as a result. That was wickedness, and this man claimed to have recommended a candidate for your presidential vote. Can you follow a man like that? Does Obasanjo have somebody in Nigeria he would suggest as a leader? A man cannot lead the path if he does not know the road, according to Tinubu.
