The All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has assured Nigerians that the country will not sink, noting that with him as president hope is back.
Tinubu said this at the APC presidential campaign flag-off that held on Tuesday at the Rwang Pam Township Stadium in Jos, Plateau State.
“Hope is back, Nigeria will be well. Nigeria will not sink. We hereby reaffirm our commitment to progressive good governance,” Tinubu said.
The flag-off was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President Ahmed Lawan, the APC governors among other party national stakeholders.
The APC flagbearer also promised to create better opportunities for the youths to achieve their potentials.
He said he is aware of the challenges facing the youths, but assured all that will become history if he gets elected as president.
He said, “To the youth, we make a promise that today may be difficult but we will not let you down because you are our children and brothers.
“I am not a happy man, untill I free you from the bondage of neglect and give you the skills, because I know you can do it,” he said.
Tinubu charged them to get their permanent voters cards, and be resilient in electing him and other APC candidates.
Tinubu lauded the APC National Chairman Sen. Abdullahi Adamu for his sagacity in bringing the party to life and influence.
He said that with Adamu at the helms of affairs, the party now has its direction on the right path.
“For the governors of our great party, I thank you for your solidarity and support at the commencement of this journey.
“Many doubted you at the begining of the journey but you have proved them wrong with your commitment.
“For my hardworking Director General Simon Lalong who is one of you, I love his confidence and I told him no matter how short a man is, he will always see the sky,” he added.
Lalong in his remarks, said that candidates who flagged off their campaigns in Jos ended up winning the election.
“Mr President, Jos has produced Chief MKO Abiola and It was in Jos that we produced Chief Olusegun Obasnajo.
“It is not a coincidence that you have chosen Jos to flag off this campaign.
“Mr President you are going to produce a successor and that successor will produce another successor.
“We are going to have a two-third of senators, two-third of house representatives and members of houses of assembly,” he added
