He urged the people of Anambra State to make sure they vote for who they are sure will have their interest as president in next month’s elections, adding that the people should reject candidates who preach hate and intolerance.

Peter Obi failed to develop Anambra, says Tinubu

Speaking further, Tinubu said that although the Labor Party’s presidential candidate is from Anambra State, the people of the state can judge his administration and how he allegedly failed to achieve significant development for the state in the name of saving funds.

The APC presidential candidate said that while Obi relies on Anambra’s votes just because he is from the state, his time as governor of Lagos state showed that he is a de-tribalized Nigerian who does not judge people based on their tribe or religion.

“Reject the darkness of intolerance and hate. Reject those who think they are so superior to you that they think that the public’s money is to be spent on themselves or hidden away in some faraway land instead of investing it to improve the daily welfare of the people.

“This election is not a popularity contest. This is not Nigeria’s big brother. This election is about who can make Nigeria bigger, bigger and stronger by leading and treating each other as brothers,” he said.

Why Peter Obi doesn’t live in Anambra – Tinubu

Tinubu said that as a former governor of Lagos, he resides in the state, unlike Obi, who reportedly lives in Lagos after ruling Anambra for eight years.

According to him, Obi could not live among the Anambra people because he feels guilty for not developing the state.

Speaking further about his achievements as Governor of Lagos State, Tinubu said:

“I know I can do these things because I made similar progress when I was governor of Lagos. Meanwhile, one of my opponents is a former governor of his state. But he does not live among you. He lives in Lagos.

“I live in Lagos because I am pleased with the progress we have made in making Lagos one of the largest economies in Africa. My opponent, however, refuses to live among you because he feels guilty for not giving you the development and growth you deserved from him.

“Mr. Stingy refused to use the state’s money to help his people. He sacrificed your welfare and well-being so he could boast that he saved money. But what’s the use of saving money if you refuse to save your own people?”

“That kind of man is a danger to those unfortunate enough to be subject to his misrule. Such a man was ill-equipped to be their governor. Don’t make it your president.

“Instead, let the light of this nation shine on the progressive path we present to you.”

Tinubu added that his government will create jobs for those living in Awka and other cities in the south-east, thus improving their daily lives.

“My government will also create agricultural hubs that will offer more, better-paying jobs while producing more food for our kitchen tables,” he added.

He also promised to reform the education sector.
