As the 2023 elections draw near, Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has labeled Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a liar who cannot explain the source of his wealth.
Mr. Tinubu threw a jab at Mr. Abubakar while addressing North-West Muslim leaders in Kano on Tuesday.
He asserted that Mr. Abubakar’s explanation of how he became wealthy was inconsistent with the rules that guided the Civil Service, where Mr. Abubakar worked before retiring.
“They asked one of them. How did you get rich? He said he was doing transportation and motor vehicle business. He had forgotten that in civil service (sic), you cannot do any other thing if you are a custom officer but a farm. Who is lying to who? Who is contradicting who?” Mr. Tinubu queried mockingly to the delight of his supporters who cheered him on at the event.
