Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a National Leader of the All Progressive Congress, APC, has said that the former ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was planning to loot the nation’s treasury for 60 years.
“While they planned a lifetime of greedy enrichment by looting the people’s resources and the public treasury for 60 years, we moved to reform the economy to bring development and aid to the poor,” Tinubu said in a goodwill message he delivered at the national convention of the APC in Abuja on Saturday night.
Tinubu revealed that many were against the merger of different political party, which birthed the APC. He said they wanted to see the end of the party and its pursuit of good governance for Nigeria.
“Their envious prayers and complaints have been answered in reverse,” Tinubu added.
The former Lagos state Governor further said that while some antagonists of the APC called for hate and division, members of the ruling party strove for compassion and unity.
“When they hoisted the standard of bias, we raised the flag of justice and the chevron of fairness,” he said.
