Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has accused former President Olusegun Obasanjo and his Vice, Atiku Abubakar of spending $16.5 billion on the nation’s energy sector with none outcomes.

Tinubu mentioned Atiku, who’s the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Social gathering, PDP, confirmed it himself that the cash was spent on electrical energy between 1999 and 2007.

DAILY POST remembers that Tinubu was the Lagos State governor in the course of the eight years rule of Obasanjo and Atiku.

Whereas he was answering questions at a city corridor assembly held in Calabar, capital of Cross River on Tuesday, the APC candidate maintained that PDP underneath Obasanjo and Atiku failed to offer electrical energy for Nigerians, urging Nigerians to not vote for the social gathering in 2023.

“Energy is the largest human discovery within the final 1000 years. Inform me what you are able to do with out energy. That’s the reason the so-called PDP must not ever come again. They spent 16.5 (billion) {dollars} some years again, Obasanjo and Atiku.

“Atiku mentioned it along with his mouth that they collected our cash from even native governments, states and others, however they didn’t know what they did with it. They might not present a kilowatt to roast a corn. What they’ve forgotten is that the colonial masters left a transmission line for us in a centralised type,” he mentioned.

Tinubu alleged that he was punished by Obasanjo and Atiku for bringing energy to Lagos as a result of he was not a member of the PDP.

“I introduced energy for Lagos State, as a substitute of embracing mind and good concept, they (Obasanjo and Atiku) punished me for it as a result of I used to be within the opposition.

“By no means once more must you give them any alternative for energy. We gave them alternative, they balkanized the ability, balkanized the transmission. They didn’t know it’s a freeway for evacuation of electrical energy, they didn’t realize it needs to be maintained, they didn’t realize it needs to be decentralized. Technology, they balkanized it, shared it amongst their associates; distribution, no metre, they provide you estimated billing. Reject them. Any authorities underneath PDP is a curse,” Tinubu mentioned angrily.
