PDP is party of termites, looters, can’t return to power—Tinubu

Lagos—The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu yesterday described the Peoples Democratic party (PDP) as a party of “termites.”

Tinubu making a case on why the PDP should not return to power in next year’s election said the party failed to fight the infrastructure battle as the ruling party for 16 years.

According to The Nation, the former Lagos state governor spoke at the inauguration of the Tinubu-Shettima Women Presidential Campaign Team hosted by First Lady Aisha Buhari at Old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Hailing the women for their unity of purpose and dedication, Tinubu said he entered the race to give hope to Nigerians.

He said: “To the women gathered here today, help is here, hope is here, assurance is here, promise is here, prosperity is here, security is here. Banditry has ended, hopelessness is not part of our dictionary; we are confident people, unity is here; diversity is here; prosperity is here.

“As Nigerians, we’re not going to give up. The sign in this cap is ‘broken shackles’. You break the shackle of poverty, break the shackle of ignorance, break the shackle of destitution, break shackles of failures. God will bless us. We will break that shackle, we will succeed as Nigerians.”

Tinubu praised President Buhari for repositioning the country, stressing that he liberated Nigeria from a state of hopelessness across the sectors.

Urging Nigerians to reject the PDP at the poll, he said: “16 years of rudderlessness, of digging the hole of indebtedness of PDP. Never again shall they come back. Who are they? They are looters. Who are they? They are squanderers. Go out there and tell them, a new hope is here. Tell them you’re following the man who knows the way; tell them you’re following the builder ”.
