National leader of APC and former governor of Lagos, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has insinuated that the ruling Peoples Democratic Party and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) are Siamese Twins following INEC’s dismal handling of the Permanent Voters Card exercise.
The APC leader lashed at INEC for reducing Lagos voters from 6.2million in 2011 to 4.8million. He noted that the PDP and INEC are Siamese twins, but pledged “we will separate them through surgical operation.”
It would be recalled that APC-governed states have been seriously hit by INEC’s PVC exercise. INEC had to extend the exercise by one day in Lagos, Ogun and Kano states (APC-governed states) because of the poor handling of the exercise in all three states. The body was also accused of reducing voters in Ogun and Kano state with the aim of disenfranchising them.
Tinubu is however optimistic that Nigerians will use their votes to break the shackles of poverty and defend their liberty at the 2015 general elections.
Tinubu who was speaking at Dr. Sam Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin during the 6th anniversary celebration of Governor Oshiomhole in office, lamented the takeover of Mubi, the second largest commercial city in Adamawa, by Islamist sect, Boko Haram, saying that “no sane leadership will stay and watch part of his country taken away by insurgence.
Tinubu who criticised President Jonathan for being insensitive by declaring his intention to seek re-election at a time when scores of students of Government Science Secondary School, Potiskum were massacred by a suicide bomber, added that, “Jonathan is dancing on the children’s blood and graves. A wise president will stay at the villa and make his declaration to run.”
