Alhaji Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and a presidential candidate for the party, stated that his main goal is to help Nigeria’s severely impoverished.
Tinubu made the remarks during a meeting with party delegates in Bauchi on Wednesday.
He informed the Bauch delegates that with their help, he would win the presidential election.
The former governor of Lagos state also stated that he wants to serve Nigeria and help it change for the better, which is why he decided to run for the post.
He said: “Let me greet and appreciate all of you who have been waiting here for a long time while we were perambulating the city of Bauchi.
“I am one of those running to become the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and I am very sure, with your support, I will win.
“I’ve demonstrated my capacity, quality, and brilliance in governance in Lagos state. I’ve been a very successful private sector person and joining politics is not a joke in an experience, it’s not a small thing.
“I want to serve my country, I want Nigeria to change, help those who are extremely poor, give priority to education, give priority to power generation so that we can have industrial growth.
“I am a serious-minded man. Those who rule Lagos now will testify that it’s a different nation within the country,” he said.
He, however, called on all members of the party in the state to be united and shun any form of animosity or differences for the success of the party.
The APC presidential hopeful added that he had observed that members of the party were not as united as he had anticipated, adding that he would do anything possible to develop unity among them.
“If you decide to work together, nobody can beat you in Bauchi.”
