“I am the only one in the race, they (other aspirants) don’t know the road. God has designed it that I am the only person you should follow; they don’t have my brain.”
These were the words of the frontline All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential aspirant, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu when he addressed APC leaders and delegates at Government House Auditorium in Minna, Niger State capital.
Without mentioning the name of any particular politician, the APC National Leader boasted that he will defeat all of them at the presidential primary election even as he said he had left them to God.
He said that those who are pointing wrong fingers at him are those without track records, asking: “how many governors have they made? How many councilors have they made? How many National Assembly members have they made? I will conquer all of them.”
He prayed that “God Should forgive all of them because they are blind.”
The presidential aspirant assured Nigerians that with a Tinubu presidency he “will eliminate bandits and terrorists from the country,” insisting that “We will overcome this tragedy.
“Bandits will not take over our land with me as president by Gods grace,” adding that “It is now time to change the calendar of bandits, to tell them it is not professional to go into banditry and terrorism and make ransom collection a source of income.”
Tinubu said that Nigeria has the potential to be great but requires the right leadership that will take care of the youths and the elderly pointing out that: “I have the brain, I have the unbreakable team that I used to build Lagos, I will use it to transform Nigeria.”
Commenting on the criticism about his health status, Tinubu said that the job of the president of a country is not to climb mountains or carry bags of cement or a wrestling match, saying that Nigeria was looking for a thinker that will provide security, somebody who knows the value of education.
Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, after showering praises on Tinubu, led the delegates to endorse the former Lagos State governor as their preferred presidential candidate for the 2023 presidential election.
