APC remains the only hope for good governance in Nigeria, Tinubu Says

Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says his party remains the best and the only hope for good governance in the country.

Tinubu spoke on Thursday at a town hall meeting with mining and agro-processing stakeholders in Lafia, Nasarawa state capital.

The presidential candidate said his campaign would be on “real issues” and his plan to address challenges confronting the country.

“We, the APC, shall continue to stand before the Nigerian people to discuss the real issues of the day and offer insight into the policy solutions we intend to deploy to solve them,” he said.

“In this, we remain the best and only hope for progressive good governance in Nigeria.

“Few nations are as well-endowed as Nigeria, given our industrious, energetic population and our vast inventory of land, water and natural resources.

“Our beloved nation has abundant, commercially viable solid mineral deposits such as coal, limestone, iron ore, bitumen, lead, zinc, gold and a variety of gemstones.

“It is the obligation of the government to use these gifts wisely to benefit the nation and improve the living standards of the average Nigerian.”

The former governor of Lagos said if elected president, solid minerals would play a key role in the country’s economy.

“In our campaign toward prosperity and our economic offensive against poverty and underdevelopment,” he said.

“The solid minerals sector contributed less than 1 percent to our GDP in 2020. We need to increase this amount every year. My administration will develop the solid minerals sector, establishing policies that will encourage investment for growth in that sector.

“My administration will ensure the full completion and operation of the Ajaokuta Steel Company under a viable Public-Private partnership structure.”
