The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, has rubbished the endorsement of his Labour Party, LP, counterpart, Peter Obi by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Recall that the former president had on Sunday declared his support for Obi.

Reacting to the endorsement on Thursday during a rally in Benin, Edo State, Tinubu said Obasanjo is trying to deceive Nigerians by endorsing Obi.

Tinubu said, “Can that man recommend a leader for you in Nigeria? Is that not sending an agent to pick your pocket? A blind leading the blind.

“I am sorry I am not insulting visually-impaired people. But it won’t work; they will end up in the ditch. If I talk about Obasanjo and Obi, you will think they are human beings together. One who doesn’t know the way cannot show the way.”

The APC flagbearer also criticized the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, saying that he (Atiku) “fought” with Obasanjo when the duo was in charge of the country’s affairs.

“The right leadership [to correct] those errors of those who are fighting naked in Wuse market in Abuja. Obasanjo and Atiku — or you were not in high school when they fought naked?” he asked.

“Show me a good job that Atiku has done before? Show me one; you can’t find it. He is not the smartest in customs. A customs officer who cannot define the ethics of civil service provision.”
