President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday in Abuja, pledged to be at the forefront of electing the former Lagos State governor as his successor, adding that it would go a long way in consolidating the achievements of his administration.
He said Tinubu as the presidential candidate of the party speaks volumes because he has the capacity, visionary leadership and a track record to do more.
The President said despite the unfavourable circumstances of global economic downturns, the COVID-19 pandemic, and very low international oil prices resulting in low revenue, the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government has ”managed to make Nigeria stable,” laying a solid foundation for progressive growth.
The President said in the seven years journey as a government, the party has every reason to be proud of its achievements amid the inherited systemic corruption and local challenges of insecurity.
Buhari made the assertions at the unveiling of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) and the Action Plan of the APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He explained that it would be disastrous to allow a situation that will lead to the reversal of the progress Nigeria has made.
The President also noted that he joyfully accept the position of the chairman of the Tinubu/Shettima campaign council.
