The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has said that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was plotting to operate “container economy” if voted into power in 2019.
Earlier, we have reported that one of the major APC contestants in Imo state, Okorocha in law, dumped the party and heads to SDP for him to lead the Imo people as governor from 2019 onwards.
Tinubu made the allegation while reacting to the Vice Presidential debate.
Speaking at the Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi’s Roundtable entitled: ‘The Imperatives of Building Institutions for Lasting Legacies,’ held at Ibadan, yesterday, Tinubu said the outcome of the debate has shown that the ‘developmental economy’ of APC cannot be compared with the ‘container economy’ of PDP.
The former Governor of Lagos State argued that the developmental economy would take Nigeria to a secured next level of economic prosperity.
He, however, stated that the container economy would return the country to perpetual slavery and poverty.
The former governor also assured that he would support the APC governorship candidate for the 2019 poll in the state, Chief Adebayo Adelabu.
He said: “I saw the debate yesterday, to crown my remarks. You could see the difference between a developmental economy and a container economy.
“Is Oyo State going APC? Oyo State is APC. It is progressive politics. I said in one place before, our Moses has crossed the Red Sea, no going back to Egypt. Success all the way.”
He stated that he did not feel bad if opposition parties in the State associated him with the process that threw Adelabu up as governorship candidate.
“If we do indirect primary again, I will still vote for your (Governor Ajimobi) choice of successor, because reforms, re-engineering, reinvigoration of the institutions can only continue beyond us. If the foundation is bad, the house will crumble,” he said.
