Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), has characterized Peter Obi, the candidate for the Labour Party, as a stingy man who brags about conserving money while his people go hungry.
Speaking during a rally for the Ondo state in Akure’s Democracy Park, Tinubu made the comments.
According to Tinubu, Obi is unable of governing in a progressive and democratic manner, which is required to realize his vision for the nation.

Tinubu’s words: “He [Obi] cares little that his policies and actions have a chance to show how progressive he could be when he was the governor of Anambra State. All he could do was boast that he saved money – I don’t know how much.
“But I tell you, it is a wicked parent like Obi, given the opportunity to feed his children, invest in tomorrow on their behalf and hold money in his hands while the children starve and go to bed hungry. That is Obi wickedness,” he said.
He claimed that only a “heartless governor” would continue to hold onto funds despite starving schoolchildren, poorly maintained roads, and clinics. According to the former governor of Lagos, neither city dwellers nor farmers benefit at this time.
“In the end, he refused to save the people because he preferred to save the money and he claimed to be a party labour (sic). Is that labour? You will have to be labouring under a terrible delusion if you think he will do a better job for this nation than he did for Anambra State.

“What is there to be proud of? After Obi left, Obi has nothing to be proud of. Instead, Obi moved, left Anambra crying. He moved to Lagos. Obi! Obi! Import and export. Warehouse economist. Obi, why did you do that?
“You now ran away to Labour. What kind of Labour? It means you have no understanding of what it means. When they talk of dignity of labour, instead [of him] to save the people, instead he saved the money. I am indeed very sorry,” he said.
