I changed Lagos; I can change Nigeria, says Tinubu
All Progressives Congress national leader Bola Tinubu and a presidential hopeful of the party has told Bauchi delegates that he is capable of changing Nigeria for the better, using Lagos as an example of what he can achieve nationally.
“I’ve demonstrated my capacity, quality and brilliance in governance in Lagos state. I’ve been a very successful private sector person and joining politics is not a joke in an experience, it’s not a small thing,” said Mr Tinubu. “I want to serve my country, I want Nigeria to change, help those who are extremely poor, give priority to education, give priority to power generation so that we can have industrial growth.”
He told the Bauchi delegates that with their support he would clinch the APC presidential ticket.
“I am a serious-minded man. Those who rule Lagos now will testify that it’s a different nation within the country,” Mr Tinubu said.
He stated this in Bauchi on Wednesday when he met with the delegates of the party. The former governor of Lagos also said he wanted to serve Nigeria and make it change for the better.
“Let me greet and appreciate all of you who have been waiting here for a long time while we were parambulating the city of Bauchi. I am one of those running to become the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and I am very sure, with your support, I will win,” stated the APC presidential hopeful.
He, however, called on all members of the party in the state to be united and shun any form of animosity or differences for the success of the party.
The APC presidential aspirant added that he had observed that members of the party were not as united as he had anticipated but promised to do anything possible to unite them.
“If you decide to work together, nobody can beat you in Bauchi,” he assured the delegates.
