Former Governor of Lagos State and the 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has shared his thought about President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in the last eight years.
The presidential hopeful who spoke today during the inauguration of the APC Women Campaign Council at the presidential villa in Abuja said the previous administration led by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was full of looters.
Tinubu commended the incumbent government led by Buhari, saying it was able to salvage 36 states of the federation from the former ruling party which was unable to pay civil servants salaries.
The APC chieftain described the umbrella party as a party of termites. HausaToday reports that Tinubu boasts confidently that the nation’s main opposition party would not win the 2023 poll.
Tinubu cheered the women present at the event, saying they are following a man (himself) who knows the way.
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.”
He added: “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.”
