Step down from presidential race, Tinubu tells Atiku

The All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has asked the Peoples Democratic Party standard bearer, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to “step down from the presidential race, having run unsuccessfully too many times.

Tinubu gave the advice at Oporoza, headquarters of Gbaramatu kingdom of Delta State, while meeting with traditional rulers and stakeholders of the Niger Delta region.

Addressing the monarchs and stakeholders who had thronged the creeks to receive him on Friday, Tinubu said, “As I stand before you, there are few of us running. One says he is Atiku, how many times has he been running? He is now tired of running. Let’s tell him to go and sit down and quit the race. Enough is enough.”

Tinubu also described the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, as a man that was not wanted by Nigerians because “he lies with arithmetic that no mathematician can solve.”

To mention his name is a disgrace to me. He gives out wrong arithmetic and wrong statistics on the economy. That is not what Nigerians want. Nigerians need honesty, they need the man who knows the road to take, and that man is me,” Tinubu stated.

He identified himself as a son in-law of the Niger Delta and appealed for support in the electioneering campaign, promising to carry everyone along, develop the area and renew the hope of the people.
