A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), in Kogi State, Prince Shuaibu Abubakar Audu, has indicated that Nigerians will vote for his party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu despite the scarcity of the new banknotes and fuel.
He said Nigerians clearly understood that the sudden scarcity of currency and fuel was masterminded by some people around President Muhamadu Buhari and the main opposition party, who wanted to prevent the APC from coasting to victory in the upcoming general elections.
Audu who spoke with newsmen at his GRA residence in Lokoja, shortly after the APC Presidential rally on Wednesday, said at this point, Nigerians have become wiser and understood that politics is being played to prevent them from electing who is capable of fixing the country and, they will vote for Tinubu without money and fuel.
He said: “Despite all the plots against Tinubu, I am confident that Nigerians across the 36 states will vote for candidates based on their past performance and Tinubu is the best among them. His resume speaks for him. He will surely replicate what he did in Lagos and therefore, this will be an automatic win for him.”
He further to explained that, “the crises currently experienced by Nigerians “was intentionally designed at this time to cause a major disruption in the lives of people, to bring the commercial transaction to a halt, in order to pitch people against APC”
Audu who mobilized thousands of his supporters to the Confluence Stadium for the rally added: “They know that they cannot defeat Tinubu now, so they are devising a plan to provoke voters, so they keep protesting and then keep blaming our party. We know there are PDP members in the Aso-Rock engineering all this.
