The All-Progressive Congress (APC) presidential aspirant Senator Bola Ahmad Tinubu has assured Nigerians that, evils or political contests would not divide the country rather it will emerge stronger and more united after the 2023 general election.
Senator Bola Ahmad Tinubu made the remarks while speaking to Jigawa state APC delegates during his visit to the state to canvass their support ahead of their party primary elections.
He said: “It is true there is a keen contest among aspirants eying for their party’s flag to vie for various elective positions in the forthcoming 2023 general election, however, we all believed in the supremacy of Nigeria above any personal interest.
Tinubu added that there are some evil persons who wish evil for Nigeria but certainly they will fail as good people of the country fervently pray to Almighty God to save the country.
“We must work, together to build the nation and make Nigeria grow bigger than all of us.
“I am here before you to solicit your support and I hope you will vote for me during our party presidential primary, and I assure you if, given the mandate, we will join hands with all good people of Nigeria to move the country forward for peace, unity, and prosperity.
“My dreams and plan are to have Jigawa state full opportunity of farming, commerce, and trade, as well as a country with full opportunity of health care services, education, and food security for all,” he declared.
In his speech during the visit, the state governor, Muhammad Badaru Abubakar described Tinubu as pan Nigerian with broad-based support across the country and has ideas that can help the country to move forward.
Governor Abubakar also attributed his political rise to the benevolence of Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He also described Senator Tinibu as a father he recalled when he was looking for a platform to contest for the governorship election in 2011, Tinubu then, not only provided him the platform in the Action Congress of Nigeria, (ACN) but gave him the moral support.
Badaru added that even though he did not eventually win the 2011 governorship election, it marks the turning point in his political career and consequently pave the way for his success in the 2015 general election.
He then reiterated his loyalty to Mr Tinubu and assured him that, whatever direction President Buhari asked them to follow they will go.
