“Apart from the policies that we think he is going to improve upon, apart from the general philosophy behind our progressive party that he’s going to work. He has his own personal qualities. We are going to promote those records.
“There are areas we’ve done well; rail, road bridges, legislative reform, Agriculture, Bola Ahmed Tinubu will come in and seek to improve on what we have done.
