Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says Atiku Abubakar is only interested in the revenue generated by Delta State.
Atiku, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and top contestant for Nigeria’s top job in 2023, is a regular visitor to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
Speaking at the flagoff of his presidential campaign in Asaba, Tinubu noted that Delta state has very little to show for its huge earnings as an oil-producing state.
“Delta has all it takes to be great and help lead the nation forward. Yet, for the past twenty-three years, those governing your state have taken you for a hard and long ride by selling you short. They have not done the things they should have and could have done for you,” Tinubu said.
“The infrastructure in the state was better 30 years ago than it is now. The state has recorded historic debts run up by the incumbent, yet the infrastructure and other things still remain lacking because of under-investment and neglect.
“The money is much but it does not have legs. Where did it go? Not to your welfare. Perhaps, it has found a home with a certain presidential candidate who loves Dubai more than Nigeria. But Delta state is not an ATM for migratory politicians,”
He urged Delta State residents to reject the PDP and vote for the APC across all elective positions.
