Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has said he will treat all the other presidential candidates participating in the 2023 general elections seriously and will not underrate any of them.
He however expressed optimism that he will emerge victorious at the end of the exercise because he is the best among all those who have indicated an interest in succeeding President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Speaking through Festus Keyamo (SAN), Minister of State, Labour and Employment and Director, Public Affairs and Spokespersons, Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo (SAN), the former Lagos state governor also promised to consolidate on the foundations already laid by President Buhari from 2015 to 2023.
“We take everybody seriously. Every co-contestant be it Atiku, Obi or Kwankwaso is a serious contender. So, we take all the 18 presidential candidates seriously and we won’t underrate anyone of them”.
“However, we are confident of our chances that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is the best among them and will emerge the winner at the end of the exercise”
“Asiwaju Tinubu is a wealth creator. He is an expert in wealth creation and what the country badly needs now is wealth creation. He is someone who turned around the fortune of Lagos and the revenue of the State during his time as governor”.
“Asiwaju will not break away from the foundation Buhari laid down. Standing on the foundation laid by this government is the connection we are looking for. The connection between the Buhari government and the incoming government; by the grace of God, Tinubu’s government”.
“It is simple; it’s just to begin to build on that foundation. There are critical areas we need to look at. For example, in the area of power, the average consumption is about 40,000 megawatts. Now this government has laid a foundation for the power sector. What is that foundation?
“There are critical assets, critical infrastructure that has been built as we speak. That infrastructure will be completed before we hand them over in May 2023. You talk about the Zangeru hydro, Mambila, and some other ones.
These are critical assets that have been developed that will bring about another 4,000 megawatts into the national grid. By the time Asiwaju takes over, his point for power will concentrate on the distribution network.”
