in response to Tinubu’s statement, Obi said that the country needed a courageous individual to help revive the country.

The flag-bearer of the Labour Party who said this over the weekend during the Party’s rally in Akure, Ondo state assured Nigerians that he will be prudent and committed to Nigeria’s funds and resources if elected president.

In his words: “Yes, they said l am stingy, but we are not out to steal the nation’s wealth. All we want to do is to use the nation’s money for our people and the development of this country.

“They said that I’m stingy; we want stingy people now, so that we can keep the money. We want to make sure we use your money to transform the country.” He further urged supporters not to be sentimental with their choices while urging them to base their voting decision on the premise of competence and character in order to salvage the country from its current predicament.

“This election that is coming now, don’t vote for anybody because of tribe but vote for someone that will move the country forward. We don’t want anybody to say that it is my turn; we want to change Nigeria for the better. Our children will be in school, we don’t want people to run out of Nigeria again” He stated.
