2023: Shettima And I Are Not Supermen With Magic Wands – Tinubu Tells Nigerians
The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu has promised that he and his running mate, Kashim Shettima will give their best if elected by Nigerians on Saturday.
Tinubu emphasized their commitment to building on the achievements recorded by the Muhammadu Buhari administration but warned that it would take a lot of work.
According to him, he and Shettima realize the enormity of the task before them and if Nigerians elect them on Saturday, they would enjoy creative and visionary leadership.
He submitted that while they are not supermen with magic wands to turn things around immediately, his administration would however assemble a team of talented individuals to get the work done.
The APC candidate said he and his running mate have the experience and knowledge to get the work done having done the same as Governors of Lagos and Borno States respectively and only seek to do the same on a national scale.
“We are determined to offer visionary and creative leadership to help actualize Nigeria’s immense potential. We do not delude ourselves that we are supermen with the magic wand to miraculously solve all our country’s problems.
“But what I solemnly pledge is the determination to select the best and brightest talents in Nigeria to help our country achieve her manifest destiny for the good of her people and the glory and pride of the black man.
“We are aware of the hardships suffered by our people and the challenges confronting our country.
“Some of these could have been mitigated by better conceptualized and articulated policies. The truth is that there can be no perfect government in any human community.“It is clear to me that there is a lot that the Buhari administration has done that is laudable in the areas of infrastructure, agriculture, and poverty alleviation. We must build upon these achievements.
“There are also some sectors where we must adopt new approaches and stress new priorities.
“We seek to demonstrate on a national scale the energy and capacity that transformed our states to bring prosperity to all Nigerians.
“Our administration will work to ensure not just a farewell to poverty but also usher in an era of prosperity in our country.
“To achieve this, we will re-engineer our security architecture to enhance the capacity of our armed forces and security agencies to guarantee the safety of the lives and properties of our people,” Tinubu said as part of a statement titled “Why I Seek Your Mandate to be President of Nigeria” which was released on Wednesday.
