2023 Elections: Obasanjo punished me – Tinubu

2023 Elections: Tinubu the best person for Nigeria – Lalong

Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, has revealed that former President Olusegun Obasanjo punished him while he was governor of Lagos State.

Tinubu explained that the decision was not a personal rebuke, but rather a rebuke of the Lagos State Government.

He claimed Obasanjo made the decision to oppose his administration because he was a member of the opposition party.

The APC presidential candidate spoke at a rally in Benin City, Edo State, against the backdrop of Obasanjo’s endorsement of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

During his governorship, he accused the former president of sabotaging his efforts to solve the challenges of electricity supply.

Tinubu also accused the then-Obasanjo administration of diverting and embezzling funds intended to address electricity problems.

According to Tinubu: “I brought Enron to solve electricity problem and help Lagos economy but Obasanjo and PDP frustrated it. They punished me and Lagos people and even began deducting our money.



“I created Local Governments in Lagos to accelerate development and create employment for our people but Obasanjo siezed our allocation and punished us for that.

“That was wickedness and such a man said he endorsed a man for you to vote as President. Can Obasanjo recommend a leader for anyone in Nigeria? A man who does not know the way cannot show the way.

“They punished me as Lagos State governor, not personal punish but the entire Lagos State was punished.”
