Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu has taunted his fellow presidential candidates, saying he does not wrestle with pigs.
Tinubu, at a town hall meeting in Calabar, the Cross River State capital, said Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) and others do not have the kind of experience he possesses to rule the nation.
According to him, other presidential candidates have resorted to insults and abuses to detract him, divert his attention and wrestle with him.
Though he described himself as a wrestler, the former Lagos State governor maintained that he would not wrestle with the pig.
“No other person is running like me. They have no facts, they have no experience. They have no track record. They have no degree of honesty. They can’t keep their promises. They resort to insults and abuses to detract. No, it doesn’t catch me; to divert, I say no, I’m from Tinubu square; to wrestle, I’m a wrestler, but I don’t wrestle with the pig,” Tinubu stated.
According to him, his concern for being in the 2023 race is the development of Nigeria.
He expressed worry that the nation had not progressed the way it ought to since 60 years ago, stressing that the task of moving Nigeria forward must be achieved in 2023.
“My concern is the development of Nigeria. This a talented country, God blessed this country. In the past 60 years, we are yet to make the necessary progress we ought to have made. Telling the past stories is gone with the wind; moving Nigeria forward is a task that must be done,” he stated.
