President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday wished the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its Presidential Candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu luck in Nigeria’s general elections billed for Saturday.
Buhari made this remark at the grand finale of the APC Presidential Campaign held at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos State.
“l hereby raise the hand of the next president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
“Congratulations and l wish APC the very best of luck,”
The President said.
In his remarks, Tinubu thanked Buhari for his support and encouragement in his bid to become the next president of Nigeria.
The former two-term governor of Lagos state said that for anybody to succeed Buhari, he or she must work hard and follow the law.
“You follow all the procedure during the party primaries, votes were cast, and l won.
“You did not ask them to reverse it based on my tribe or religion, not minding being from your village in Daura.
“Leadership is for growth, independence of mind and capacity to perform which you encouraged me to inculcate,”
He, therefore, gave his assurance to work hard if elected and promised to sustain democracy.
The APC presidential candidate said:
“I will renew the hopes of the hopeless and all the goals and agenda set in our manifesto will be fulfilled.”
Tinubu also urged the people to come out en masse to vote for him if they wanted him to become the next president of Nigeria as well as all other APC candidates.
