The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has mocked the opposition parties challenging his party in the July 16th governorship election in Osun, including the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP), saying they will labour in vain till they die.
Tinubu said this while campaigning for the APC in Osun state, yesterday, July 12th. The Osun state governorship election is scheduled to hold on July 16.
While speaking at the rally, Tinubu described Labour Party as “mushroom party”.
“I ask you to please do the same thing you did in Ekiti. Come out with your PVCs and vote massively for APC. The voting is now in your hand. Be very vigilant. Be watchful. You will not do it in vain.
Think about your children and vote accordingly so you can see the future. Come out en masse. Don’t mind PDP and other mushroom parties — parties like Labour; they will labour till they d!e. God will not make you labourers.
You’re next. We will be here till tomorrow. We will come back here for victory dance. Look at the trajectory of our lives. We make promises and fulfil them. We are the ones upholding the party, the Buhari party. Don’t answer the naysayers, they will labour in vain.”
Gboyega Oyetola, the incumbent governor, is the flagbearer of the APC, while Ademola Adeleke is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Other candidates are Lasun Yusuf of Labour Party (LP), Akin Ogunbiyi of Accord, and Goke Omigbodun of Social Democratic Party (SDP).
