As the fireworks to the general elections continues, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has accused President Goodluck Jonathan of being insincere that he knows nothing about the 400,000 barrels of crude oil which the former Lagos State governor said was being stolen from Nigeria daily.
Tinubu, who spoke at the flag-off of Governor Abiola Ajimobi’s campaign in Ibadan on Saturday, insisted that Jonathan was allegedly responsible for oil theft and that he should be removed by all Nigerians during presidential election.
He said, “God will not take us back to the bad days again. We will not see PDP here again because God has chased them away. Segun Oni and Oyinlola have realised that PDP is not the right party. Leaders of the party have deceived us for too long but I did not allow them in Lagos.
“In the past, Oyo was a violent state but that has disappeared and we will not go back to the dark days. APC stands for the actualisation of better future for our children.
“Jonathan and his government are stealing 400,000 barrels of crude oil every day in Nigeria.
He also spoke about former Governor Rashidi Ladoja’s removal from office, the role he (Tinubu) played to restore him and how Ladoja refused to work with Ajimobi despite his (Tinubu’s) several appeals.
On his part, Governor Aregesola, also accused the PDP of bringing suffering and corruption to the country, adding that the administration of the party since 1999 had sent Nigerians to slavery.
He said, “A litre of kerosene is now N120 but the landing cost is just N40.90k. They give to marketers at the rate of N95. That can only be done by a fraudulent government. They feed on fraudulent act perpetrated in the oil industry. PDP is a shameless party and they must go.”
