Sowore attacks Tinubu over promise to Yahoo Boys

The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has criticised Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), for promising to transform internet fraudsters, otherwise known as “Yahoo Boys,” by creating technological hubs for them if elected into power in next month’s poll.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Tinubu had during his rally in Edo State on Thursday urged a huge crowd of supporters at the University of Benin Sports Complex, Ugbowo, to vote for him, if they wanted to be rich.

Describing himself as a knowledgeable man, the APC candidate said industrial and technology hubs would be created to make the youths become instruments for development.

“I will convert Yahoo boys and make them useful by converting their talents and intellects to produce chips for industries. We can defeat poverty, ignorance and homelessness. We have the knowledge, we have the brain to do it. Trust me. I am an expert in finding the way where there is no way,” Tinubu had said.

Reacting, Sowore wrote on his verified Twitter handle: “@officialABAT has completely lost it! To think that no one in the “yahoo-yahoo” @OfficialAPCNg party conscientious enough to object to these absolute rubbishing is most disheartening. #WeCantContinueLikeThis.”
