Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, has assured President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday that he would combat hunger and terrorism.
Tinubu also assured Buhari that if elected, he would address Lake Chad issues as he spoke during the Presidential flag-off of the Kolmani Integrated Development Project in the North-East
“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,” the former Lagos governor told the President.
Tinubu praised Buhari for being upbeat about the country’s problems.
“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. Let me assure you I will continue to hold on to that renewed hope and carry forward where you left the footprints,” Tinubu said.
