Lagos congested because Obi didn’t develop Anambra for Igbos – Tinubu

By afolabi

All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has attributed migration of Igbo to Lagos to the inability of the Labour Party’s presidential flagbearer, Peter Obi, to develop Anambra when he was governor of the south eastern state.

Tinubu said said Obi’s tenure as Anambra’s governor is nothing to write home about, adding that he does not have what it takes to turn the country around.

“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,” He said

Speaking at a presidential rally in Ondo on Saturday, Tinubu liken Obi to a fake merchant that deals with fake good, imploring the electorate not to buy what he’s selling.

“I’m indeed very sorry. Buyers beware. A salesman selling fake merchandise. Beware of people like Obi.

“The truth of the difference between my leadership and that of Mr Obi lies in one observation. Although Lagos is crowded because of the space left when they migrate to Lagos from Anambra,” Tinubu said.

Speaking further, Tinubu said, “It is a wicked parent like Obi given the opportunity to feed the children but hoard money on his hands when the children starve and go to bed hungry.

“That is Obi wickedness. It is true that the heartless governor will hoard money when there are hungry school children, roads and clinics are in disrepair.”

Popular for being a frugal administrator, Obi hinges his campiagn on transforming Nigeria from a consumption to production country.

Last year, Mr Obi said that some Nigerians were urging Mr Tinubu to contest the presidency despite his apparent ailment because his doles out money.

In few weeks time, the former Anambra governor will contest the presidency against APC’s Bola Tinubu, PDP’s Atiku Abubakar and host of other candidates.
