The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has tackled his All Progressives Congress (APC) counterpart, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for describing him as a stingy man.

Peter Obi, a former Anambra State governor,  stated that the country would be safer in the hands of a stingy man.

CityNews Nigeria recalls that Tinubu had last week, during his campaign rally in Akure, Ondo State, slammed the LP candidate for saving money instead of using it to develop Anambra.

Tinubu had said: “All he (Obi) could do was boast that he saved money. But I tell you, it is a wicked parent that holds money in his hand yet allows his children to starve.

“My people, you cannot entrust your future or that of our nation to Mr. Sell Everything Atiku or Mr. Stingy Obi. But you can trust Mr. Progressive Good Governance Tinubu!”

Reacting during a rally in Akure on Saturday, Peter Obi said he is stingy but prudent in managing public funds.

The former governor called on Nigerians not to vote for a candidate his age, academic qualifications, and background are controversial.

He stated that Nigeria would be safer in his care as a stingy man because he would be able to invest in education, health, the economy, and other sectors to develop the country.

“Yes, they said l am stingy, but we are not out to steal the nation’s wealth, but all we want to do is to use the nation’s money for our people and development of this country.

“They said that I’m stingy. We want stingy people now so that we can keep the money. We want to make sure we use your money to transform the country.

“This election that is coming now don’t vote for anybody because of the tribe but vote for someone that will move the country forward.

“This election is about character and people we can trust. Everybody knows the schools my running mate and I attended. You all know our age, our schools, and everything about us. Our backgrounds are known,” Peter Obi said.
