Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu, acclaimed god father of Lagos politics and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Saturday joined Babatunde Raji Fashola, Minister of Works, Power and Housing to knock former President Olusegun Obasanjo, describing him as the greatest election rigger in Nigeria.
The public bashing took place Saturday as the ruling party brought its presidential campaign to Lagos.
Speaking at the rally which held at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos, Tinubu said Obasanjo should be relegated to the dustbin.
He said, “Who sent Michelin, Dunlop, Siemens packing out of the country, it was the PDP government. They want to come back to take our money to Europe and America. For the foreign observers, you are truly welcome, observe what you want to observe, write your report in peace and go home, this is our democracy. America is still questioning its own democracy.
“In 2007, the late President Yar’Adua said the election that brought him as president in this country was flawed and he promised to reform it. Who conducted that election? Obasanjo is the greatest election rigger in this country, let him be put in the dustbin.”
