Let fuel be scarce, change ink of naira, I will win — Tinubu


The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has alleged that the current fuel scarcity and  the decision of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to redesign the N200, N500 and 1,000 banknotes were parts of the plan by some powers-that-be to sabotage his victory in the 2023 general election.

Tinubu who spoke during his campaign on Wednesday at the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta, said he would win, despite the disruptions.

The former Lagos State governor declared that the fuel crisis and the scarcity of the newly redesigned Naira notes were artificially created to discourage Nigerians from voting for the APC.

He called on the people to remain resolute and resist any attempt by anyone to stop the election from holding.

The APC presidential candidate promised that his administration would also introduce a student loan programme that would ensure that no Nigerian student is unable to complete his or her education because of school fees.

“There will be a student loan, nobody will drop out of university because of school fees, I guarantee you that.

“Nobody will have to repeat one class for eight years and not graduate.

“We are too smart, we are brilliant, we are courageous, we will make a four-year course be a four-year course,” he said.

While saying that the forthcoming general election is a revolution that would reshape the country, he noted that his administration would do all it can to ensure that the price of fuel is bearable for all Nigerians.

He also alleged that there were thick plots against him and clandestine moves to scuttle the 2023 election, stressing that nothing would stop him from emerging victorious on February 25.

“Let them change the ink in Naira notes.

Speaking further, the Jagaban of Lagos State said: “Even if they said there is no fuel, we will trek to vote. They have a lot of mischief, they could say there is no fuel.

“They have been scheming to create a fuel crisis, but forget about it. Relax, I, Asiwaju have told you that the issue of fuel supply will be permanently addressed.

“Whoever wants to eat the honey embedded in a mountain won’t worry about the axe. Is that not so?

“And if you want to eat palm kernel, you would bring stone and use it to break it, then the kernel will come out.

“Let them increase the price of fuel, only they know where they have hoarded the fuel.

“They hoarded money, they hoarded naira; we will go and vote and we will win. Even if they change the ink on Naira notes, whatever their plans, it will come to naught.

“We are going to win. Those in the PDP will lose (won ma lule),” he declared.

He noted that as a homeboy, he had come to Ogun not to put the people to shame, but to win and take over the government.

 “I am a homeboy, I have come here, you will not be put to shame, we will take over the government from them, the traitors who wanted to contest with us, they had no experience”, Tinubu said.

“This election is a revolution. They are plotting, but they will fail. They said fuel price will increase and reach N200 per litre. Go and relax.
