Nigerians urging ailing Tinubu for presidency because of money – Peter Obi

Tinubu and Peter Obi

The standard bearer of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has alleged that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is sick but Nigerians are urging him to contest the 2023 elections because he doles out money.

Obi made this claim while recently speaking at a meeting with Nigerians in Belgium.

Njenje Media TV published the video on YouTube on Saturday. The date the video was recorded cannot verify, but Obi confirmed his presence in the European country on Thursday when he met with European Union officials.

The former Anambra State governor said, “Once he comes here and gives you money, you will say Jagaban is the best candidate even when the man is not well. That’s the problem of the country.”

He added, “somebody said to me that this candidate fought Abacha regime to stand still. That he even lost everything. I said, but he has two planes now. Where is his company? 

“My brother, we are in a crisis. 

“That’s why I’m pleading to all of us. Let us go and take back our country and run it like any other country where the leader is responsible to the people. The people can question the rascality and the behaviour of their leader. Bad behaviour has become a measure of success in our system.”
