National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, said the federal government has diverted money meant to insure the lives of security men, especially those fighting insurgency in the North East.
Speaking at an at APC campaign rally in Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Area of Lagos, the former governor of Lagos State lamented that in spite of failing to fulfill promises made to Nigerians in 2011, the Federal Government, under President Goodluck Jonathan, was yet to apologise to Nigerians and explain the reason for the failure.
“Jonathan never says to Nigerians, I am sorry. Today, he cannot pay insurance for the life of the soldiers and the police who are working in danger.
“They have concentrated money in bribing people. The exchange rate is very high and he says he wants to make vehicles for Nigeria.
“Majority of Nigerian youths are looking for jobs. Six years ago, he appealed to Nigerians that he had no shoes and because of that people voted for him. The President has spent six years in office and he is yet to do what he promised Nigerians.
“He has failed in the area of power and that has affected many small and medium scale businesses. Today, they are asking for people to pay for electricity they don’t use. That is double jeopardy; money for diesel, money for electricity failure. Can we allow that one to continue? We need change.” said Tinubu.
Tinubu urged the electorate not to vote based on ethnicity, tribe or religion.
“If a government has been there for 16 years and you don’t see progress, you must move out of that government; send them away. Enough is enough. Failure is not part of us.
“Our brothers and sisters from East, there is no difference between us. The vote is about salvation, happiness and together in unity; we can rescue Nigeria and lead it to prosperity,” Tinubu said.
