The presidential candidate of the All Progressive Party ( APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has descended even lower in gutter politics describing opposition parties, the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) and Labour Party (LP) as mushroom parties that will labour to death.
Tinubu made the comments when he joined the campaign train of Osun state governor and APC gubernatorial candidate, Gboyega Oyetola in Osogbo, the state capital.
Oyetola is campaigning to retain his seat as governor of the state.
Among his strongest opposition are, Ademola Adeleke of the PDP and Lasun Yusuf of LP.
The former governor of Lagos, who spoke at the Osun APC mega rally on Tuesday, described the PDP and LP as “mushroom parties”.
“I ask you to please do the same thing you did in Ekiti,” Tinubu boasts in a tired voice before urging the people to “come out with your PVCs and vote massively for APC.”
He continued: “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 die. 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.”
