Buhari tackling problems others ran from, Tinubu declares


The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has dismissed insinuations of disagreement between him and the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), describing the latter’s support as unalloyed and enduring.

Telescope.ng reports that while speaking at the APC rally in Gusau, the Zamfara State capital, on Saturday, Tinubu pledged to leverage the state’s agrarian potentials to tackle her developmental challenges.

Reading from a prepared speech, the former Lagos state governor said, “I have supported President Muhammadu Buhari even before his first day in office. I will continue to be his supporter and friend after his last day in office.

“He tackled the problems other leaders ran from. He has earned a place in history that cannot be denied.

“I have said this before and will say it again now; when the true history of this moment is written, the President shall be treated very kindly because of his contributions to the nation,” he said.

Urging the people to reject opposition candidates, Tinubu said, “Their vision for Nigeria is the vision of one who cannot see. They seek to enrich themselves by making you poor. They want to eat everything so that you might go hungry. They want to own everything but leave you with nothing.

“We stand here today to affirm that our vision for a greater Nigeria will triumph over their blind vision for a broken Nigeria. Remember; where there is blind vision, there is also blind ambition.

“We will not allow their selfish games to overtake you. The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) has done his part to free Nigeria from their mean grip. Now, we must do our part by freeing you from the selfish plans they have for you and our beloved land.”

He also praised the Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, for his role in tackling the security challenges in the state, stressing that alongside his running mate, Kashim Shettima, they had what it would take to restore peace not only in Zamfara but across the nation as a whole.

A statement issued by the Tinubu Media Office and signed by Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, quoted the presidential candidate as saying that “If Allah blesses us to win this election; we will not relent until we beat this problem.
