Opposition behind scarcity, naira redesign row – Tinubu

The All Progressives Congress (APC) standard bearer Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has reflected on the fuel scarcity and naira design crisis, which have attracted condemnation from many Nigerians.

According to him, the petroleum scarcity and complaints about currency redesign were the plans of unpatriotic citizens to embarrass the Buhari administration and scuttle the proposed elections.

But, the APC candidate, who said the tricks will collapse, fired salvos at the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying that it will be defeated on poll day.

The former Lagos State governor, who spoke in English and Yoruba, said: “I came to appeal and solicit for your votes. This election is a revolution. We will use superior revolution and PVCs to get power.

“They are using fuel scarcity to distract Nigerians. I assure you, it will be a thing of the past. They are hoarding fuel and new naira notes to frustrate Nigerians. They don’t want the election.

“I will reduce the price of fuel. Be rest assured that I will solve the fuel crisis. Let them keep the fuel; keep hoarding the money; change the money. We shall defeat them. PDP will fail again, it doesn’t matter whatever they do.”

Tinubu urged the people to re-elect Governor Dapo Abiodun, and the senatorial, House of Representatives, and House of Assembly candidates of the party.

He said: “Vote all the way. Governor Dapo Abiodun’s second term bid is guaranteed.”
