FORMER Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, yesterday, blamed the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the grinding poverty in Nigeria, saying it was enough reason for Nigerians to vote the party out of power.
He regretted that the party was not concerned about the plight of the common man, adding that what matters to the PDP is how long it would rule the country.
Tinubu spoke in Lagos at the 6th annual Bola Tinubu Colloquim titled: “ The Summit 0f The Common Man”
His words: “The common man lives below poverty line which is measurable by all standards in the world. We have heard about a farmer who was defrauded through their fertilizer scheme. Yet they talk about SURE-P of corruption. This is a reminder about the type of leader we have in the country. We must be compassionate. We need an enduring change that is not along relegious lines. No matter how rich you are since you are African, you must still have a link with poverty. It could either be through your mother, uncle or any relation. We have to break that shackle.”
