The Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Bola Tinubu has told his audience that his counterpart in the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) Atiku Abubakar, will sell their “birthright and run away with it.”
Speaking during a mega rally in Akure, the Ondo State capital on Saturday, Tinubu asserted that he does not want to do the brave and hardwork required to build a better nation.
He added that the PDP flag bearer “would rather sell your birthright to the highest bidder and run off with the proceeds,”
The APC candidate said: “On February 25, I know you will be a champion of progressive politics again. That date represents for the nation and for each and every one of us an appointment with destiny.
“We not only must make that appointment, we must emerge from the appointment fully dedicated to creating a more prosperous, safer, tolerant and dynamic society.
“But these things do not come by accident. These things are but some of the fruits that only progressive and democratic good governance can harvest.
“And that progressive governance can only be brought to you by someone who has governed in a progressive manner before.”
The PDP flagbearer had often been accused of running to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, after every election he loses.
He recently returned to Nigeria after spending about two weeks in the UAE, with critics accusing him of only being concerned about himself and living a larger than life with looted funds.
Tinubu referenced the accusation, saying, “He (Atiku) cares little that his policies and actions will impoverish you and leave you with nothing.”
