I Want To Become President Because Of Our Children, Says Tinubu
Tinubu says I Want To Become President Because Of Our Children
All progressive Congress leader and presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu, says he is gunning for Nigeria’s topmost job in order to secure the coming generation.
“We chose democracy and we must not fail in this task. I’m in this race to renew hope and make the future great for our children,” said Mr Tinubu during a consultation with members of Ekiti Traditional Council on Thursday in Ado-Ekiti.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain said the country was in dire need of a leader who could unite the people, tackle insecurity and bring about the desired socio-economic development.
He said the consultation with the traditional rulers was in furtherance of his 2023 presidential aspiration and to get the prayers and support of the royal fathers.
“We have struggled for democracy and today we have democracy but we are not stable yet. By now we should have a good farming system and opportunities to produce for other nations to buy.
“For Nigeria to stand united and develop, we require patience and wisdom. We have to be united, that is the only way we can be great. That was why we formed APC based on principles,” he said.
He said there must be continuity in governance for progress to be attained.
“I was the first governor in Nigeria to start paying the WAEC fee of secondary school students. I shall do it again as a President,” he said.
Senator Dayo Adeyeye, the National Chairman of South-West Agenda 2023 for Tinubu Presidential Ambition, (SWAGA) said Mr Tinubu has made great investments toward promoting the development of Ekiti state.
“That APC is in Ekiti today is traceable to God and Tinubu. He struggled for it and restored progressive politics here. He has made many Ekiti people commissioners, Special Advisers and local government chairmen in Lagos.
“Tinubu honoured our own hero in Ekiti, Adekunle Fajuyi by building a house for him. He has helped so many people, including myself,” Mr Adeyeye said.
Responding, Oba Gabriel Adejumo, the Onisan of Isan-Ekiti and Chairman of the Ekiti Traditional Council, said the constitution permits every qualified Nigerian to aspire for any position.
He prayed for God’s guidance and protection to help Mr Tinubu realise his ambition.
Mr Tinubu was accompanied to the meeting by Ekiti State Deputy Governor, Bisi Egbeyemi and members of SWAGA from the 16 Local Government Areas of the state.
