The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has promised to bring succour to Nigerians if he is elected President in next year’s general election.
Tinubu made this remark at the presidential campaign, a rally of his party held in Lagos on Saturday.
He said that the reprieve will come the way of Nigerians in all areas including education, health, employment opportunities, security and infrastructure.
“We will do our best for Nigeria. It is not going to be easy at the starting point,” Mr Tinubu said.
He expressed confidence in the progressive governors forum and their ability to keep the party together ahead of the 2023 polls, saying, “we will work together to run this government.”
He also urged Lagos residents to re-elect Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his running mate, Obafemi Hamzat, for the progress and stability of the state.
The director-general of the Tinubu/Shettima campaign council and governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong expressed joy at the massive turnout of party supporters at the rally..
“It is not only human beings that are happy with Asiwaju, I saw fishes jumping for Asiwaju on our way here, and we are anxiously waiting for the victory in 2023.
“Asiwaju Tinubu is the best candidate and the most suitable person to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari. Tinubu is a good manager of people and resources. We know he can take Nigeria to greater heights,” Mr Lalong added.
Also, Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi and chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum (PGF), who spoke on behalf of all other governors, commended Mr Sanwo-Olu for organising such a massive rally.
In his welcome address, Mr Sanwo-Olu, who described Mr Tinubu as a true leader, said, “Asiwaju is the champion of unity. I believe he will continue to work for the unity and progress of this country”, he said
