A former Governor of Nasarawa State, Umaru Al-Makura, on Tuesday stated that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu has paid his dues to ensure democratic government in Nigeria.
The lawmaker representing Nasarawa North senatorial district noted that it is the right thing for Nigerians to vote for the former Governor of Lagos in 2023.
Al-Makura stated this while speaking during a meeting with various support groups for Tinubu from Nasarawa State on Tuesday.
According to the former governor, Tinubu will perform the magic he did when he was governor of Lagos State if he wins the 2023 presidential election.
Al-Makura said, “Tinubu will perform the magic he did to ensure law and order which transformed Lagos State if elected in 2023.
“He has paid his dues to ensure democratic government in the country and it is the right thing to elect such a person as the president.”
Tinubu would be hoping to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari at the end of his tenure in 2023.
He would be contesting against the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi and others in the 2023 general elections.
