Benin City – The Presidential candidate of the ruling APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has said Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was not qualified to endorse any President because of his failures.

This was stated on Thursday in Edo State while speaking at the APC Presidential Campaign rally, as he said the former president failed to develop the country.

He also said Chief Obansanjo was busy fighting his then vice president, Atiku Abubakar because he wants to siphon country’s finances for his personal comfort.

Tinubu also noted that after spending $16billion on electricity, Obasanjo and the PDP government could not deliver electricity for Nigerians to make even popcorn, Punch reported.

“I brought Enron to solve the electricity problem and help Lagos economy but Obasanjo and PDP frustrated it, Tinubu said.

“They punished me and Lagos people and even began deducting our money. I created Local Governments in Lagos to accelerate development and create employment for our people but Obasanjo siezed our allocation and punished us for that.

“That was wickedness and such a man said he endorsed a man for you to vote as President. Can you follow such a man? Can Obasanjo recommend a leader for anyone in Nigeria? A man who does not know the way cannot show the way.”

The Lagos former Governor also said the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku was not qualified to be President of Nigeria having indicted himself as a civil servant.

“Atiku and Obasanjo accused themselves of using Nigeria’s money to buy cars for their comfort.

“Atiku was a custom officer who said he made money selling cars, that is smuggling.

“He didn’t even know that a civil servant cannot do any other business apart from agriculture. That is enough to disqualify him and he is not fit to be President.”
