The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the 2023 general election, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has expressed confidence in winning the presidential poll.
The ex-governor of Lagos State spoke during the Kaduna Economic and Investment Summit in Kaduna State on Saturday.
He also lauded the Kaduna State governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, noting that Nigeria needed a thinker like the governor.
Tinubu said, “I am confidently telling you that I will win with your support and I know you are very supportive of me. I know that I am at home here in Kaduna.
“We will continue to prioritise the restoration of peace and security across all our territories. I am confident. Under my leadership, the government will place emphasis on the use of counterinsurgency doctrine as a strategy by our military. We will fight it together.’’
He assured that under his watch as president no inch of the country would be conceded to terrorists and robbers.
He added, “We will continue to train and equip our gallant forces and security personnel with resources, equipment and technology necessary to eliminate crime in our society. Nigeria will succeed and grow to prosperity. I assure you. I will champion an efficient government that will eliminate revenue leakages across federal areas leveraging technology…”
The APC presidential candidate also begged El-Rufai to remain in the country in 2023 to work with him.
He said, “If you leave me on the podium, I will continue to campaign here. Don’t run away from Nigeria in 2023 because we need your creativity at this critical time.’’
Responding, El-Rufai who returned to the podium, replied, “I promise to stay even on a part-time basis.”
Explaining how he would fix the economy, Tinubu stated, “We will privatise the ease of doing business and ensure steady power supply and distribution.
“Nigeria will succeed and move on to prosperity. I will assemble intelligent Nigerians both men and women, for the progress of our country. We will champion an effective government that will block revenue leakages for proper accountability.’’
