Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has accused ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo of frustrating his move to solve the power problem in Lagos when he was the governor of the State.
Tinubu added that he could have ended the epileptic power supply in the country.
Recall that when Tinubu was Governor of Lagos State from 1999 to 2007, Obasanjo was the President of Nigeria. He was the first State Governor to bring into Nigeria independent power generation. According to him, if the project was allowed to go through, it would have solved the electricity problem plaguing Nigeria for years
Tinubu made this disclosure during an interactive session with the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Abuja, led by Archbishop Daniel Okoh.
He said, “I was the first Governor to bring in independent power generation to the country. Obasanjo, a fellow Yoruba man was the President then, rejected it. If not, we would have been out of this problem since then. I can tell it to his face, I will say it again and again. He stopped that project.”
Tinubu Attacks Atiku, Obi
Tinubu also took a swipe at the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi, saying they have not laid any legacy to deserve to be elected President of Nigeria.
