Nigeria’s Problem Started During Obasanjo’s Regime…Do Or Die Politics Was His Legacy – Oshiomhole
Obasanjo Is An Expired Politician Seeking Relevance By Lying, Don’t Trust Him – Tinubu Tells Nigerians
APC leader, Bola Tinubu, on Monday called on Nigerians to ignore former President Olusegun Obasanjo, dismissing him as an expired politician.
Tinubu, who spoke at the All Progressives Congress(APC) rally in Maiduguri, told the teeming supporters: “I can hear the other expired leaders like Obasanjo, ranting and lying. Don’t believe, don’t trust him, he is expired.”
Tinubu regretted the frequent attacks on the Buhari-led administration by Obasanjo, stressing the current government was cleaning up the mess and rot of the past PDP administrations.
“When we came on board in 2015, we made promises to all Nigerians that as the sheep of this country, we are going to turn it to the right direction and we have done that.
“We are sweeping all the cobwebs of the collateral corruption, we are sweeping it away to give Nigerians a new life, new home and a solid foundation; that is what President Buhari is doing and we are 100 per cent with him.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has been upright, firm and has been steady, focused with a great vision for the betterment and progress of this country.
“We can recall the rigging in 2003 under Obasanjo, we also knew what happened in 2007 under President Obasanjo.
“95 percent of you must come out and vote en mass for Buhari because no other president had upheld democratic principles like President Buhari.
“In 1999, we gave it to him but he cannot remember even one day to recognise MKO’s mandate of June 12. Again, when he came back into power, we ask him for the recognition he failed. Who did it? President Buhari. declared June 12 as Democracy day to honour MKO Abiola,” Tinubu said.
He declared Obasanjo’s attacks were in bad faith, stating “ he could not stop Nigerians from re-electing the president”.
APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole scored Buhari’s government very high in security, saying all the 24 local government councils under the control of Boko Haram during the last administration have been liberated.
“No LGA is under the control of the insurgents. You have gained control of the 774 councils.
”We still have security challenges but the arrogance, impunity that Nigeria is wallowing in had become a thing of the past,” he declared.
He added: “Everything that we are in today started in Obasanjo’s regime. Do- or- die politics was Obasanjo’s legacy. Today, the era of impeaching state governors is over.
“The era of quarrelling with Vice President and fighting in the market place is. The era of withdrawal of Lagos state monthly allocations was the legacy of Obasanjo.“
