Tinubu lacks moral right to reform Yahoo boys - PDP

PDP says Tinubu lacks moral right to reform Yahoo boys PDP says Tinubu lacks moral right to reform Yahoo boys

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lambasted Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The party was reacting to Tinubu's promise to fraudsters in the state.

The APC candidate had promised that he would turned the yahoo boys in the state into manufacturing experts.

In a statement made available to by Phrank Shaibu, special assistant, Public Communication to Atiku Abubakar, Tinubu is not in a position to make such promise.

He insisted that the APC presidential candidate lacks moral rights to make a promise of such. He consequently highlighted all the allegations against the former Lagos state governor.

The statement read in part: “The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, produced another comedy skit at the APC Presidential rally in Benin City on Thursday when he promised to turn “the so called Yahoo boys in Edo State to “experts in manufacturing and creation of chips that din dasan dadauga”.

“Had it been he were addressing a Christian congregation we could have assumed that he was speaking in tongues but this was a campaign rally where he was supposed to have sold his candidacy to the millions of youths suffering from unemployment under the disease called the APC. Instead he elected to refer to the young people of Edo state as Yahoo boys and fraudsters.

“Tinubu’s daily gaffes are evidence that he has no business going to Aso Rock Presidential Villa but he should rather be seeking urgent medical attention."
