Former Governor of Lagos State and presidential hopeful, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has promised to solve various challenges facing the country if elected as the next president.
He made this known on Friday when he paid a visit to the Chairman of Ondo Council of traditional rulers, the Deji of Akure, Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi.
Tinubu said he would replicate what he did to help boost Lagos revenue if given the opportunity to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said if elected to succeed Buhari, Nigeria will be ranked among the best nations in the world, adding that Nigeria will compete with Russia in oil and gas exploration.
According to him, he knows the problem facing the country and promised to unite every region in the country which would lead to growth and development.
He said: “Lagos State was the worst state in Africa when I became governor, we generate meagre revenue then but we did our best. Look at Lagos now, it generates over N40 billion in revenue.
“Division is one of the problems in Nigeria too but there is no division in Lagos because any tribe or religion is welcomed as they can contest and win elections. That is why Lagos is thriving.
Nigeria has the potential to compete with Russia in oil and gas exploration. If we harness our resources properly and if there is stable electricity, Nigeria will also compete with other nations in manufacturing.
“I am here to seek the blessing of our royal fathers for my presidential ambition because I know where the problems are and if given the opportunity in 2023, Nigeria will be ranked among the best nations in the world. I am imploring all eligible voters to get their Permanent Voters Card revalidated for them to exercise their civic responsibilities.”
In his remarks, the Deji of Akure backed the presidential ambition of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The monarch described Tinubu as the right candidate for the 2023 presidency, adding that he has the ability to solve the country’s problems.
