Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate for the 2023 elections, says Nigerians who oppose the Buhari administration’s borrowings should stop driving Mercedes-Benz and Lexus vehicles.
During the presentation of the campaign manifestation on Friday in Abuja, Tinubu made this statement without providing context or rationale for his charge.
“I stand before you proudly, noting that those who are afraid of the budget, the thoughts of borrowing. Yes, borrowing. If borrowing is a crime, entire America should be in jail. If borrowing is a crime, stop using Mercedes Benz and Lexus,” Mr Tinubu declared.
Listeners were shocked as to the correlation between usage of particular brands of vehicles and concerns for ballooning national debts
The former Lagos governor has been under scrutiny for his mental acuity, presence of mind and general healthiness as he struggles with his feeble physicality.
Recently, he has made some incoherent remarks which have further heightened concerns among his watchers, who fear the 70-year-old may be showing signs of dementia.
Last week, Mr Tinubu caused a stir when he said Kaduna Governor Nasir El-rufai’s vision, creativity and resilience in turning “a rotten situation into a bad one” is necessary for the incoming administration.
At another function in Kaduna, when asked how his administration would tackle climate change as being championed by the West, Mr Tinubu answered by saying: “Climate change is a question of how do you prevent a church rat from eating a poisoned Holy Communion.”
In one of his recent public engagements, Tinubu admitted that his handlers had warned him not to speak outside his written script, in an apparent move to curtail his plethora of gaffes.
