This Is Tinubu’s Birthday Wish From Nigerians
On Thursday, a former Governor of Lagos State and the Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Tinubu, marked his 66th birthday.
At the occasion, which was also the 10th Bola Tinubu Colloquium, held in Eko Hotel and Suite the APC leader made a daunting request, like it was a birthday wish.
"Don't take their apology," he said, referring to the Peoples Democratic Party's apology offered few days ago.
The opposition had asked Nigerians to forgive its members for not handling the affairs of the nation in a way it would please Nigerians for 16 years.
But Senator Tinubu wants Nigerians to disregard that apology.
He insisted that it was impossible to stop speaking about the criminal looting by the past government.
"It is like catching a thief and he says, don't look at me, go and steal your own.
"They lie, they falsify, change figures and for 16 years they made fake promises, gave us fake figures and they say don't talk about it," he stated.
Tinubu believes that no matter what the opposition PDP does, "it will never return to power" come 2019.
For him, a letter written to President Muhammadu Buhari by a former President of Nigeria, Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo, was written in envy.
It is 'bad belly' letter, the former Governor of Lagos State told the gathering.
"There is a difference between us and them... Night and day. We are re-inventing, redirecting Nigeria.
"It is not an easy task, but we have a good leadership to rescue the nation and we have hope," he added.
