Tinubu: Obasanjo wanted to roast Atiku, but I rescued him

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, said yesterday that he “rescued” the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, from former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

This came as leaders and stakeholders in the APC’s Akwa Ibom State chapter vowed to deliver the state to Tinubu in the February 25 presidential election.

Speaking at the party’s presidential rally held at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, Tinubu said Abubakar and his party were just about “stomach infrastructure”. They don’t have a mandate, what they have is ice cream. It has melted. I am the one that rescued him from Obasanjo, who wanted to roast him like goat meat.

“He ran away to Dubai and when the election came again, he came for stomach infrastructure. He came to Lagos. We rehabilitated him and gave him a ticket but he wasted it and used it to collect money.

“He faced Obasanjo, faced Buhari and failed. He failed with Jonathan. He failed in all his subjects.

“You better watch him before he starts selling the little palm trees that you have left. What we need to do is to develop our country. We have enough gas reservoirs in our land.

“Akwa Ibom, you will not suffer again. That boy (Governor Emmanuel Udom) that brought Atiku here, who calls himself governor, tells him enough is enough. He lived in my backyard in Lagos. If not that we are one, I’d have driven him home.”

Earlier, addressing a crowd of supporters, former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs and candidate of the APC for Akwa Ibom North West (Ikot Ekpene) senatorial district, Senator Godswill Akpabio appealed to the party members and supporters to ensure they get their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) in order to return the party to power through Tinubu.
