National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Monday declared that he and other bigwigs of the party were in Ilorin, Kwara State “to fight” the state’s former governor now Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
Newsworth reports that the former Lagos governor urged the people of Kwara State to vote out Saraki and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, gubernatorial candidate in the state, Hon. Razaq Atunwa.
Speaking at the APC presidential campaign rally in the Kwara State capital, Tinubu described Saraki as a “traitor and backstabber”, adding that the people should ensure that he does not return to office via the forthcoming general elections.
He said, “It’s been long they have been stealing your money and who has been doing it? it’s Bukola. We are here to fight Bukola, we are here to quarrel Bukola, he is a traitor and backstabber, we must not allow him steal our votes.
“This is the celebration of your freedom, the emperor that did exist here for several years now.”
Speaking on how to remove Saraki, he said, “Use your index finger to thumbprint and for women don’t apply ‘Larlie’ on your finger on that day because they will say you have voted.
“If you thumbprint and it doesn’t work, try again, insist on voting. Use your index finger touch the link then thumbprint close to the broom on the ballot paper.
“I want to assure you that the incoming administration of President Muhammadu Buhari will be fair to us and ensure that your lives are changed,” Tinubu said.
