Tinubu Vows To Work Hard For Nigeria If Elected President

Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has vowed to work for Nigeria if elected president in the February 25th presidential election.

Tinubu made this vow while addressing supporters at the party’s final presidential rally in Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos on Tuesday.

The rally was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari and governors on the platform of the ruling party.

Eulogising Buhari for gracing the occasion, Tinubu said, “Thank you very much Mr. President. You encourage all of us. Thank you for today, thank you for the past and thank you for tomorrow. You set our foot on the path to the future to work hard for our nation and achieve greatness because it’s desirable for Nigeria to great,”

Tinubu further said, “Thank you Mr. President. You follow the procedure. You encourage all of us. The primary came, the vote cast and I won. I didn’t ask them to reverse it based upon my religion, you didn’t ask them to alter it based upon my tribe. You didn’t ask us to change it because I was not from your village in Daura.

“You celebrated the victory with me and said to me, “Congratulations.” I came to you to nominate for me just exactly as I did for you in 2015 to nominate for me a Vice President, but instead of giving me the same coin, you said, “No, you know better, you’ve experienced better, you know those Nigerians, you know who you want to work with,” Tinubu said.

Some of the party leaders present at the rally include Senate President Ahmed Lawan, Speaker of the House Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, National Chairman of the APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
