National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has attacked Peter Obi, the vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over his claim on job creation.
Tinubu said the former Governor of Anambra state was only vast in creating “container economy” and not jobs.
He spoke during the APC’s presidential rally in Lagos, on Saturday.
The former Lagos State governor also lambasted former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
responsible for the epileptic power in the country.
Tinubu recalled how Obasanjo and Atiku opposed his plan for power generation in Badagry but that he later won in court.
According to Tinubu: “Then, Obasanjo came. We taught them that there was no other way to have business evolution and revolution in this country without steady power supply.
“I introduced independent generating power projects in Badagry. What did he do? He and Atiku opposed it. I went to court. Who was my lawyer in court? Osinbajo. I won in court and we started generating 300MW, the first state to do it.
“Imagine, that was in 1999. If Nigeria was dedicated to electricity generation, you would not see Dunlop and Michelin move out of the country. Look at our roads, look at the vehicular density in Lagos alone.”
Commenting on Obi, he said, “And they call one man Obi, in one party, saying he will create jobs. He has not been able to tell us how we can make brake pads for those vehicles, how we can make wheel spanners on our own for those vehicles.
“And he said maybe he can go and expand the port in Benin Republic so we can clear our cargoes faster. I call that ‘container economy, Obi China.”
