Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu has said that the country needs an experienced torchbearer to guide it through the doors of security, prosperity and greatness.
The APC presidential flagbearer gave assurance of his readiness to hit the ground running to this mission from the very first day he gets elected.
Tinubu stated this on Friday in Abuja at the State House Banquet Hall during the unveiling of his campaign policy document tagged “Renewed hope: An action plan for a better Nigeria” and inauguration of the APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) by President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to Tinubu , his efforts at transforming Lagos State into one of the leading economies in Africa placed him in the best position to help achieve a greater Nigeria that all will be proud of.
“The doors to security, prosperity and greatness are open to us. We must step through these portals, guided by a torchbearer with the experience and mettle to shoulder the task ahead. Nothing short of this will suffice.
“I seek to become the next president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria because I know the way. My experience and past performance assure that. It will be through collective effort and national endeavour that we join hands, cross divides, and achieve our vision.”
The APC presidential flagbearer said his campaign roadmap was borne out of interactions with Nigerians across the country who shared their needs and aspirations with him and Senator Shettima in the course of their travelling round the country.
He stressed that the country does not need fancy promises and foreign experiments, but rather sustainable reforms through stable governance and proven leadership.
He said, “I ask you to join Senator Shettima and I on this journey. We have traversed every part of our nation, listening to the concerns and yearnings of Nigerians for a more prosperous and equitable society – better able to acknowledge and nurture the dreams of her people. We share the peoples’ desire for a peaceful Nigeria where we all coexist in fairness, prosperity and with balanced representation in positions of authority.
“After visiting and meeting our compatriots; young and old, poor and rich, educated and uneducated, Christian and Muslim; we recognize that no Nigerian wants empty answers to hard questions at this hour.
“The country does not need fancy promises or foreign experiments. Nigerians seek sustained progress and reform through stable governance and proven leadership.”
