All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential aspirant, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday promised to curb hunger and ensure shared prosperity in Nigeria if elected into office as president in the 2023 election.
The former governor of Lagos State made the promise in Gombe when he paid homage to the Emir of Gombe, Alhaji Abubakar Shehu-Abubakar III.
Tinubu who was in the state to meet APC members and party delegates ahead of the party’s primary election said: “If elected as the President of Nigeria and Insha Allah I will be, I will work with the successful governors to make things better.
“We will work and banish hunger, we will work and reset Nigeria’s prosperity so that all of us will enjoy the reward of our labour in this country.”
“I am here to pay my respect before I meet with the delegates and our party members,” he told the Emir.
Speaking at the occasion, Governor Inuwa Yahaya said Tinubu needed no introduction.
“He is a politician par excellence and leader by example.
“He is another important person that we feel also has the quality to lead the country and take it to promise land,” he said.
The Emir spoke well of Tinubu too.
His words: “The name, Jagaban, is a household name in Nigeria; your record as Lagos state Governor speaks for itself.
“Your success in Internally Generated Revenue has set Lagos State on the path of economic independence.
“As a political leader and mentor of political leaders, I commend you for the visit and the respect you have for people of Gombe.”
