The presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has said he would become Nigeria’s next president despite the current fuel crisis and the scarcity of the naira.
Tinubu said this during a rally at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Wednesday.
According to him, there is a plot by some saboteurs to stop the 2023 general elections from holding.
“Let fuel be expensive, only they know where they keep it. Keep petrol, keep the naira, we will vote and be elected. You may change the ink of naira notes. What you expect will not happen. We will win,” the APC flag-bearer was quoted as saying in Yoruba parlance.
“They said petrol will rise to N200/litre and N500/litre, let your mind be at rest. They don’t want these forthcoming elections to hold. They want to scatter it but that won’t be possible.
“They thought they could cause trouble; they sabotaged fuel but with or without fuel, with or without motorcycles and tricycles, we will vote and win. This is a superior revolution.”
“We will take over government through our PVCs. Even if they say there is no fuel, we will trek to the polling units,” he added.
Reacting to this, Dele Momodu who is the Director of the campaign and Strategic Communications for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) interpreted some of the comments made by Tinubu who spoke in Yoruba.

“Whether they like it or not, we shall wrestle power from them, even if they say there is no fuel, we shall trek and use our PVC, they are already playing tricks,” as interpreted by Momodu.
President Muhammadu Buhari is the current minister of Petroleum and Nigerians have been lamenting over the scarcity of fuel that have since seen the price fluctuating between N180 to N500 across the country.
