The All Progressives Congress [APC] Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Wednesday alleged plans to scuttle the 2023 general election through Central Bank of Nigeria naira redesign policy and the lingering fuel scarcity nationwide.

He said, “They don’t want this election to hold. They want to sabotage it. Will you allow them?”, Tinubu asked the teeming supporters at the MKO Abiola stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta.
The Jagaban Borgu however, vowed that Nigerians would defy the fuel scarcity and trek to cast their votes.
According to him, the forthcoming polls would be a superior revolution.
“They have started coming up with the issue of ‘no fuel’. Don’t worry, if there is no fuel, we will trek to cast the vote.
“If you like increase price of fuel, hide the fuel or change the ink on the naira notes, we will win the election,” he said.
Meanwhile, Senator Tinubu, has disclosed that if elected into office in February, his administration would put an end to the issue of strikes in the university system of the country.
He noted that his administration would also introduce a student loan programme that would ensure that no Nigerian student is unable to complete his or education because of school fees.
“There will be a student loan, nobody will drop out of university because of school fees, I guarantee you that.
“Nobody will have to repeat one class for eight years and not graduate, we are too smart, we are brilliant, we are courageous, we will make a four –year course will be a four-year course,” he said.
While also adding that the forthcoming general election is a revolution that would reshape the country, he noted that his administration would do all it can to ensure that the price of Premium Motor Spirit also known as petrol is bearable for all Nigerians.
“We are going to use our PVC to claim our mandate, even if they say that there is no fuel, we will walk to vote, let your mind be at rest, we will vote and I will win
“This election is a revolution, they are saying that petrol will be expensive, they say it will become two hundred Naira per litre, let your mind be at rest, we will bring the price down,” he said.
Tinubu who also called on the people of the state to go all out and claim their permanent voter’s cards still left at the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission, said that they would be able to ensure his victory if they make it their duty to claim their permanent voter’s card.
Earlier in his remarks, the Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, while assuring the presidential candidate of the party that the votes from the state would be a100%, added that Tinubu is the best deal for the country at this period.
