The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu on Friday stated that ruling Nigeria requires intelligence, smartness and not strength to resolve the crisis rocking the country.
The Presidential aspirant stated this on Friday while addressing party delegates in Minna ahead of the party primaries.
He stated that Nigerians are looking for a president who will look at economic opportunities and turn them around to prosperity.
Tinubu in his statement said, “A President’s job is not to climb mountains, wrestle or carry concrete. It is to think and perform with his brain.
“We are not looking for a WWE wrestling fighter. We are looking for a thinker to provide security for us.
“We are looking for a doer who will look at economic opportunities and turn it around to prosperity.”
According to Tinubu, he has a track record of ruling Nigeria having transformed Lagos State when he was the state’s governor at the time.
The former Governor of Lagos State called on delegates to vote for someone who has made other people in Nigeria.
The Presidential aspirant wondered why so many Nigerians are contesting for the presidency in 2023.
Tinubu said, “I know the road to prosperity, safety, clean environment, development of our nation and infrastructure because I have done it all in Lagos state and I can do it again.
“Where are their track records? How many Councillors, local government Chairmen and chairpersons, members of the house of Assemblies, House of Representatives or Senators have they produced? I have produced them.
“Too many people running, running, running where are they running to? Some of them are running to Sokoto, some to Suleja while some are running to Kontagora but are running for the Presidency of Nigeria. I don’t know where the others are running to.”
