PostSubject: Jonathan, others steal 400,000 barrels of oil daily —Tinubu   2015-01-18, 07:53

The National Leader of the All
Progressives Congress, Senator
Bola Tinubu, has accused President
Goodluck Jonathan of being
insincere that he knows nothing
about the 400,000 barrels of crude
oil which the former Lagos State
governor said was being stolen
from Nigeria daily.
Tinubu, who spoke at the flag-off of
Governor Abiola Ajimobi’s
campaign in Ibadan on Saturday,
insisted that Jonathan was
allegedly responsible for oil theft
and that he should be removed by
all Nigerians during presidential
election.
Leaders of the APC present at the
campaign included former
Chairman of the party, Bisi Akande;
former Governors of Ekiti State,
Kayode Fayemi and Segun Oni;
former Governor of Osun State,
Olagunsoye Oyinlola; Governor
Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State; APC
Chairman in Oyo State, Akin Oke;
and South-West party executives.
Tinubu described the Peoples
Democratic Party as “Poverty
Development Party,” while calling
on market women, teachers and
civil servants in Oyo State not to
allow the party to return them to
the dark days.
He said, “God will not take us back
to the bad days again. We will not
see PDP here again because God
has chased them away. Segun Oni
and Oyinlola have realised that PDP
is not the right party. Leaders of the
party have deceived us for too long
but I did not allow them in Lagos.
“In the past, Oyo was a violent state
but that has disappeared and we
will not go back to the dark days.
APC stands for the actualisation of
better future for our children.
“Jonathan and his government are
stealing 400,000 barrels of crude oil
every day in Nigeria. He is telling us
that he cannot see that amount of
crude oil being stolen in the
system, yet he calls himself the
President. He is running a
government of thieves and we will
use our votes to send him away. He
is taking away all our wealth.”
Tinubu also spoke about former
Governor Rashidi Ladoja’s removal
from office, the role he (Tinubu)
played to restore him and how
Ladoja refused to work with
Ajimobi despite his (Tinubu’s)
several appeals.
He said he was surprised that
Ladoja had to form the Accord Party.
Aregesola, in his remarks, also
accused the PDP of bringing
suffering and corruption to the
country, adding that the
administration of the party since
1999 had sent Nigerians to slavery.
He said, “A litre of kerosene is now
N120 but the landing cost is just
N40.90k. They give to marketers at
the rate of N95. That can only be
done by a fraudulent government.
They feed on fraudulent act
perpetrated in the oil industry. PDP
is a shameless party and they must
go.”
The Presidency however described
Tinubu’s allegation as “an idle
campaign talk.”
Special Adviser to the President on
Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben
Abati, said this in an interview with
SUNDAY PUNCH.
Abati warned members and the
leadership of the opposition party
to refrain from what he called
“verbal violence.”
Abati said, “”Opposition members
and leaders should be warned to
refrain from verbal violence.
They should tell Nigerians what
they can do for them if elected.
Now that they have seen that their
lies about government not fighting
corruption is no longer convincing,
they are resorting to verbal
violence.”
