The National Leader of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, and former Governor of Lagos State Amed Tinubu made have been guilty of hate speech.
APC -led Federal Government has launched a war against hate speech and fake news which it sees as capable of setting the country ablaze.
Tinubu while campaign for President Muhammadu Buhari today ,February 9, called Obi “Obi China ” .
He was apparently mocking the Vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for his economic blueprints which has won him the admiration of many Nigerians who see it as a way of re-juvinating the wobbling economy.
Tinubu said the PDP’s VP candidate is only vast in creating what he described as “container economy”.
Making further jest of the former Anambra State Governor whose deep knowledge of economic policies is legendary , Tinubu said Obi is only good at bogus economic theories.
His words :”And they call one man Obi, in one party, saying he will create jobs.
“He has not been able to tell us how we can make brake parts for those vehicles, how we can make wheel spanners on our own for those vehicles.
“And he said maybe he can go and expand the port in Benin Republic so we can clear our cargoes faster. I call that ‘container economy, Obi China.’”
