If I'm elected president, I'll recharge Lake Chad - Tinubu

The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday, told President Muhammadu Buhari that he would arrest Lake Chad problems if elected president.

Tinubu who spoke during the Presidential flag-off of the Kolmani Integrated Development Project in the North-East, also assured Buhari that he would of arrest hunger and terrorism.

He said: “Your (Buhari) various regrets each time we discuss is the challenge of hunger and terrorism, you talk about Lake Chad.

“Let me assure you, if I am elected the president, I will recharge Lake Chad. You often talk about Mambila and electricity, what a problem we have.”

He commended Buhari being positive about the nation’s issues.

“You are not a backward person who looks back at history of disappointment and failures, you are always forward looking,” he said.

He added that he will continue in Buhari’s stead.

“That is why while we were debating, I insisted that our title for the manifesto will be ‘A Renewed Hope’ not knowing that today will happen and today it is happening, it’s a renewed hope for the entire Nigeria, Federal Republic of the country. Let me assure you I will continue to hold on to that renewed hope and carry forward where you left the footprints,” the APC flag bearer said.

He, however, added that Nigerians might be hungry but they could manage their hunger.
