LAGOS – The former Governor of Lagos State and national leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has declared that he is not afraid of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, because he did not steal a kobo from the coffers of Lagos State. He stated this when he addressed Lagos market men and women at Alhaja Abibat Mogaji’s house yesterday on the forthcoming April elections.
According to him, “I was not a poor man before I joined politics. I am not afraid of anybody because I did not steal money. I can walk the streets of Lagos a free man,” adding: “tell all market men and women in Lagos to vote for ACN, because a vote for ACN in next month election will break the shackles of poverty, insecurity and lawlessness.
“Don’t let them continue to deceive us. This other party with their umbrella can only make empty promise. Their umbrella cannot provide you with security. They are lies. Their party is Poverty Development Party. They have nothing to offer.
Advising the market men and women he said: “don’t sell your future, don’t allow them to buy your voters card. The message is very clear. Some people ruled you for 12 years, what they do is to make empty promise. Now they want your votes. It is now they remembered that Jonathan is related to Ibo. You will hear Ebele today, Azikiwe tomorrow”.
He advised the traders to be watchful, saying: “after voting, you should protect your votes. We want to see how they planned to rig elections. Cast your votes for ACN, you can see that Lagos is getting better. Things are changing in Lagos. That is what we want to replicate in the country if you vote for ACN.”
