Amidst alleged row with Pres. Muhammadu Buhari, Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the APC for the 2023 election, has said that betrayals propel him to work harder.
Bellnewsonline.com reports that Tinubu stated this on Sunday at a town hall meeting in Benin City, the Edo State capital with APC leaders, trade unions and civil society organisations.
“Disappointment is an energiser for me. You disappoint me, I work harder. You betray me, I don’t get angry, I ignore you.
“The reason is that you are not my God and you are not my creator. My mother taught me that if you are sad, I will share your sorrow with you. If you are happy, I will rejoice with you. If you are poor, I will share the little I have with you,” Tinubu said.
Furthermore, the 70-year-old urged the electorate to reject the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the forthcoming poll, saying the party has nothing to offer.
On the criticisms of President Buhari-led APC administration by the PDP, Tinubu said the main opposition party should be ignored.
“People who can’t give power to Nigeria say they want to come back.
“In only 8 years, APC put rail back. We are putting refineries back and we will produce for you.
“They can abuse Buhari from morning till night, he does not hear their abuse. Abuse him, rail he provided, second Niger Bridge he provided, Lagos-Ibadan expressway he provided. Benin-Ore Port will be done so that you don’t need to come to Lagos to clear your goods,” the APC candidate said.
