Tinubu’s presidency will change Nigeria’s fortune for good, says Abiodun
Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has said the fortune of Nigeria will change for good if Bola Ahmed Tinubu emerges as president next year.
Abiodun made the declaration in an interview with newsmen after attending a town hall meeting and interactive session with business community and the private sector, organised for Tinubu/Shettima presidential team in Lagos.
He said that Tinubu and Shettima, having been governors of Lagos and Borno states respectively, had the requisite knowledge and experience that could transform the country for good.
He described members of the team selected from every part of the country as highly skilled, knowledgeable and experienced individuals, who are ready to hit the ground running for the good of the nation.
Tinubu, who gave a brief breakdown of his manifesto, said that the business community and the private sector were key to economic development and engines of growth.
He promised that his administration would work towards uniting the nation through regular dialogue by opening various channels of communication where issues affecting Nigerians would be discussed.
Tinubu, who stressed the need for having constant power supply to drive the nation’s economy, said the industrial policies would be revived to encourage production and move the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to six per cent and the agricultural sector encouraged to produce enough food for the nation.
Besides, the APC vice presidential candidate, Senator Kashim Shettima, noted that insecurity undermined investments, hence the Tinubu administration would adopt intelligence-driven approach, enhance welfare package and provide modern equipment to the military to perform their constitutional duties.
In his opening remarks, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said Lagos prosperity is hinged on the economy blueprint put in place by Tinubu, saying his wealth of experience as a thorough-bred politician and an astute administrator would be of great benefit to the country.
The senator representing Lagos West, Solomon Olamilekan, while urging Nigerians to vote massively for Tinubu and all the APC candidates in the forthcoming elections, said the party’s flagbearer had the capacity to take Nigeria to the Promised Land owing to his track record as the governor of Lagos State.
