President Muhammadu Buhari has said he will work for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu to succeed him. He made this known Tuesday, during the flag-off of the party’s presidential campaign at the Rwang Pam Township Stadium, Jos, Plateau State.
President Buhari gave the assurances, stating that the APC has all it takes to win the elections.
According to him, the emergence of Tinubu as the presidential candidate of the party shows that he is an acceptable candidate for the party.
Earlier, on his part, National Chairman of the APC, Sen Abdullahi Adamu said the APC has no fear of any political party.
He said Tinubu will build on the achievements of President Buhari and ensure that Nigerians are happy.
The APC presidential candidate, Tinubu, in his remark said serving Nigeria is what he has always done and when elected, he will do more.
He thanked Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State for leading the campaign as Director General and also hosting the flag-off in his state.
Earlier, Governor Lalong acknowledged that Plateau state has been blessed for such events.
“You will recall that Plateau State in the past hosted such high level party events which eventually produced Presidents of Nigeria and other national leaders that played significant roles in the growth and sustenance of our democracy. On this occasion, we are at the threshold of making yet another history of producing another President in Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” he stated.
