Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of APC, in a veiled reference to Peter Obi, said Nigerians do not need a presidential candidate spreading “foolish statistics” and “lies.”

Tinubu stated this on Tuesday during his town hall meeting with the Business Community and Organised Private Sector at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The former Governor of Lagos said the task ahead is doable but difficult and only the right party and candidate can make the bold decisions Nigeria needs.

Tinubu added that a candidate (Obi) and party (Labour Party) with no plans for Nigeria will take the country to the wrong destination.

He said: “When you asked him (Peter Obi) what he wants to do, he will say I will do the right thing, then the question is, what is the right thing you want to do, it is clear he does not know what to do. He has no plan for Nigeria.”

Also at the meeting, Tinubu laid out his Action Plan before the business leaders.

The APC presidential candidate restated his administration’s resolve to hit a double-figure Gross Domestic Product (GDP) if he wins the 2023 presidential election.

Tinubu said having achieved similar economic success as Lagos State governor, he has the capacity to repeat the same in the country as president.

He said, “Lagos is an appropriate venue for this meeting.

“You may have heard that I was once governor of this dynamic economic force. However, may I remind you that when I first entered office, Lagos was a different story.

“My team and I developed a blueprint, a master plan, for Lagos. I can say that plan has been largely successful.

“We turned this state into a safer, more prosperous place where people can go about any legitimate vocation or venture regardless of their ethnicity, religion, region or prior social station.

“We did more than open Lagos for business. We opened the door for all Nigeria to join and experience the decent things progressive democratic governance can bring.

“We were not perfect but we did a lot.

“In doing so, we worked hand-in-hand with the business community as partners sharing the same goals of prosperity and renewed hope.

“Well, as you might have heard at some point recently, I now stand before you, seeking a bigger yet similar job.”

He, therefore, called on the Lagos Business Community to join hands with him to achieve this, stating that a viable economy requires collaboration between the political and business communities.

“Nigeria stands at the threshold between indifference and greatness, prosperity and poverty, the future and the past.

“The door is ajar.  Together, let us open it so that we may cross over to the better side and secure for this beloved nation its finer destiny.

“The productive and beneficial things we seek do not lie in the sole domain of one sector. They reside in the cooperation between the government and the private sector.

“I see no conflict between the business community and government.  Yet, with equal conviction, I believe the private sector and government should constantly be at war.

“But they wage this battle, not as enemies. They must stand as inseparable allies combating the mutual enemies of scarcity, underdevelopment, joblessness, and the fear these bad things breed.
