Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has described members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a group of looters who shouldn’t be allowed to return to power in 2023.
Tinubu said this earlier today during the inauguration of the Tinubu-Shettima Women Presidential Campaign Team at the State House Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said PDP had 16 years of nothingness, noting that never again would his party allow them to return to power.
He said, “Our opponents spent 16 years, they had forgotten that the highway is an economy, electricity is mandatory for industrialisation. They don’t understand the transmission lines and the need for maintenance. They couldn’t make a down payment for the trail track. They are a political party of termites.
“16 years of rudderless and ditching the wool. PDP shall never come back again. Never again. Who are they? They are looters. Go out there and tell them. A new hope is here. Whether it’s from Imo state we take. Tell them today is women’s day.
“You are following the man who knows the way. The design on this cap is a broken shackle. We are breaking the shackle of poverty and destitution. In the last eight years, it has been a party that inherited a troublesome nation under the weight of uncertainty.
“We took over the worst pricing of crude oil but still, the very determined, focused person (Buhari) was able to bail 36 states of this country who were not able to pay salaries.”
In attendance were at least 1,250 women members of the APC from across the country, including President Muhammadu Buhari, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari.
Tinubu had in June described the opposition PDP party as the agents of poverty in the country.
Tinubu who stated this as part of his acceptance speech at the Eagles Square, noted that the PDP was responsible for all the violence and poverty Nigeria experiences.
