Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress has said that the current fuel scarcity and price hike in Nigeria won’t stop him from becoming Nigeria’s next President come February 25.
Tinubu stated this on Wednesday during his campaign held at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
This follows the hike of fuel pump prices from N270 to N400 per litre in recent weeks.
The flag bearer who spoke in the Yoruba language while addressing the crowd said there was a deliberate move by some people he described as saboteurs to derail the coming elections.
Although Tinubu did not reveal the identity of the people behind the scarcity, he accused the same people of hoarding the currency to stop the coming elections.
However, the APC standard bearer urged the people to endure the pains and ensure they cast their votes for him, regardless of fuel scarcity and hike in the pump price.
“They keep fuel, they keep money, they are the ones who know why they are doing that.
“If you like, change the ink of the naira. We are going to win and the PDP will fall down.
“The city boy is here. I am the son of the soil. We will take the government from them. The bad people.
“They don’t want the election to take place. They want to stop the election. Will you allow them?”
Tinubu was accompanied by his running mate, Kashim Shettima; the Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, pioneer national chairman of the APC, Bisi Akande; Deputy Director of the APC Campaign Organisation, Adams Oshiomhole, among others.
