National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has vowed to teach the presidential candidate of the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar a lesson at the polls taking place on Saturday.
He also told the International Observers monitoring the forthcoming general elections to observe the elections and go home, saying Nigerians would not entertain unlawful interference by foreign organisations or countries.
Speaking yesterday at the APC presidential rally held at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere in Lagos, Tinubu also took a swipe at former President Olusegun Obasanjo over his criticism of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration, describing the former president as the nation’s biggest election rigger.
His words: “I want to sympathise with our friends, our foreign observers. You are truly welcome. Observe what you need to observe, write your report in peace and go home.
This is our democracy. America is still questioning its own democracy. We are watching CNN, Trump and Russia, China. Interference in the largest Africa democracy is what we are saying. “The G20 in 2007 asked President Umar Yar’Adua, what are you going to do with the election in Nigeria?
He said, ‘The election that brought me in as the president is flawed and I will reform it’. Who conducted the election? Obasanjo, the greatest election rigger in this country. He is an expired meat. Put him in the shop or dump him in the dustbin, forget Obasanjo!”
Tinubu said the APC presidential rally in Lagos was a celebration of democracy and not about the campaign of Buhari, declaring that: “Lagos is sure, very sure for the APC. This is a broom revolution. You’ve heard our state chairman who had catalogued when Buhari came here to campaign four years ago, he did not make fluke promises. We saw the action.”
