Delta State Commissioner for Information, Charles Aniagwu, has tackled the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, over his Delta State not an ATM for presidential candidate who loves Dubai.
WITHIN NIGERIA had reported that Tinubu on Saturday during an APC rally at the Warri Township Stadium said, “Delta State is not an ATM for migratory politicians.”
Tinubu lambasted the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Vice-Presidential Candidate and Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, for failing to develop the state despite the huge federal allocation to the state.
In his response to Tinubu’s comment, Aniagwu, said the people of Delta State appreciated the state’s infrastructural development and that Delta was “not like Lagos that Bola Tinubu put in his pocket.”
Speaking with PUNCH, Aniagwu, who is also a spokesperson for the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation said, “We don’t have time to respond to somebody whose identity is still unknown. Let him first of all go and clear himself; when and where he was born, the schools he attended and other records about him so we can know who we are talking to.
“Somebody whose records are still in doubt cannot be the one talking. Our state cannot be in his pocket the way he did Lagos. Delta is not Lagos and our people cannot be deceived by such a person.
“With the kind of wonderful defeat and disgrace he, the APC and Adams Oshiomhole suffered in the last Edo State governorship election, we thought he would have learnt some lessons. That 2020 defeat in Edo will be a child’s play compared to what they will suffer in Delta State in 2023.
“Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has been prudent in managing the state economy. We have a lot of infrastructure on ground for all the money that accrued to the state, ranging from roads to bridges, schools and human capital development. Their (APC) governorship candidate did not tell him that the road from the airport to the stadium is a federal road the APC-led Federal Government failed to fix.”
