“As at today, among the politicians in Nigeria, I have not seen anyone who loves Northerners more than Tinubu. When PDP refused to give Atiku ticket, Tinubu gave him the Presidential flag bearer of his party. After that, Tinubu also gave Nuhu Ribadu his party’s Presidential flag bearer although he didn’t win the election. But even at that he helped him.
“What about that of Buhari? Buhari contested for the Presidential election for three times without succeeding. It was Tinubu who offered a merger and helped President Buhari to become President. After Buhari became President, Tinubu was not given any position and he never asked for it. But for the love of Democracy, Nigeria, Buhari and the North. He supported the government. So what about now? It is pay back time for Tinubu. It is time to give him that support. Northerners don’t have any reason not to support him? No reason. Tinubu has already won the election in the North by God’s willing.
“It is important for you to know. Why do we want to win this election? Nigeria is a country of diversity. Therefore, you need a leader who has capacity, experience, knowledge, firmness, who understands governance in the country. We assure you, we have the best Presidential candidate in APC.
“We are not voting for him (Tinubu) because he is a Yoruba neither because he is a Muslim but because he has the capacity. He has done it before and will do it again, he is tested and trusted. He transformed Lagos to what it is today. Since 1999 and after leaving office as the Governor of Lagos State, he has consistently lead his party to victory. No politician in Nigeria for the past 21 years, with that unbeatable track record.
