Tinubu hits at PDP, LP at campaign rally

Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Tuesday took a swipe at both Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP) at his campaign flag-off, held at the Rwang Pam stadium, Jos, Plateau state.

Tinubu, in his remarks, implied both opposition political parties are making unfavourable offers to Nigerians.

“One party wants to take us back to a past that never should have been. Another party wants to take us to a past that resides only in its candidate’s head. Neither the old road nor the fantasy road is good enough,” Tinubu said.

The former Lagos state governor told his supporters at the packed stadium that, “Hope is back.” He added, “One can see a Nigeria where all who want to will be able to build a decent life from the fruits of their individual and collective endeavour. From this fine vantage point, we see how far we have come. We also see how far we must go and the road that will take us there.”

The presidential candidate also vowed to sustain President Muhammadu Buhari’s legacies. “Mr President, you have provided exceptional service to the nation and party. Your contributions are both positive and enduring. When the history of this period is objectively written, it will smile upon you and treat you with utmost kindness,” Tinubu said.

“We hereby reaffirm our commitment to progressive good governance and to the fruits that such governance can bring to this nation.

“February 2023 is more than an election. It is a fight to define the soul of the nation and to determine our collective fate. Do we adhere to the ideals of broadly shared prosperity, competence, peace, justice and compassion toward all? Or do we toss these ideals away, lashing ourselves to the divisive politics of the past or to those whose ranting show they cannot distinguish between fact and fantasy?” he asked.
