The Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has vowed to deport Peter Obi from Lagos to Anambra State if elected president of Nigeria in 2023.
He claimed that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, does not know the road to lead as the president of Nigeria.
Tinubu made this assertion while speaking at the APC presidential campaign flag-off holding on Tuesday at the Rawang Pam Township Stadium in Jos, Plateau State.
He said, “Peter obi, Haaa! This Obidient. He lives in Lagos not in Anambra. He doesn’t know the road. We will return him to Anambra. We will chart him a new course.”
The APC presidential candidate, who stated that the Labour Party candidate lives in Lagos, vowed that he will send Obi back to Anambra state in 2023.
Tinubu however, assured Nigerians that hope is back, saying that Nigeria will be well in the face of difficult times.
He said, “ Hope is back, Nigeria will be well. Nigeria will not sink. We hereby reaffirm our commitment to progressive good governance.”
The flag-off was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President Ahmed Lawan, the APC governors among other party national stakeholders.
Meanwhile, goodwill messages have continued to pour in as the APC Presidential campaign flag-off is ongoing in Jos.
Governors Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Ben Ayade (Cross River), Mohammed Badaru (Jigawa), Mai Mala Buni (Yobe), and Nasiru El-Rufai (Kaduna) who all spoke pledged to work for the success of the party and charged supporters to work for the party.
The event witnessed the presence of heavy security operatives who had a hard time controlling the crowd. It took the intervention of the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Idris Maje to bring the situation under control.
Senator Remi Tinubu in the company of Hajia Nana Shettima assured women and youths that they will be carried along in governance hence they have nothing to fear in voting in the Party in 2023.
Tinubu stated, “God will make our nation greater than what is being seen…, there will be food, there will be jobs…”
