The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who is also one of the party’s presidential aspirants says he has all the qualities to be the party’s candidate rather than an aspirant.
According to The News reports, Tinubu said this on Monday in Katsina while addressing party delegates ahead of its presidential primary election.
Tinubu explained that he possessed all the requisite qualities to be seen as a potential president of Nigeria due to his wide knowledge and experiences as well as his track record of achievement in governance.
He said if voted as president, he would unite Nigerians and give them more hope irrespective of tribe or religion, adding that he would develop a new strategy and commit enough resources to fight banditry and other related crimes.
The APC national leader also said he would focus on irrigation farming, economic, education and infrastructural development and keep Nigeria working again.
“I come to unite Nigeria and not to divide it; I come to bring you hope, prosperity, happiness, job and stability.
“Though tongues may differ, the brotherhood will stand; you are my brother and together we will defeat poverty.
“Anybody that wants it can run, but not everybody can become the president,’’ he said.
Responding, Gov. Aminu Masari of Katsina State said Nigeria needed a leader like Tinubu with wide experience in governance.
He expressed the belief and confidence that Nigeria would certainly overcome the challenges confronting it soon.
