President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to residents of Nasarawa state to vote for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, in the 2023 general election.
The President made the appeal on Saturday during the APC’s presidential campaign rally in Lafia.
He described Tinubu as a committed and experienced Nigerian who is passionate about the country and can be trusted to lead it to the promised land.
He explained that he had been an ally of Tinubu for over 20 years, adding that they had gone through a lot of challenges in their bid to contribute meaningfully to the development of Nigeria.
Buhari commended the party’s supporters for standing under the scorching sun while they were waiting for the campaign rally to commence.
He said, “I congratulate you and thank you all for defying the weather and standing for more than three hours for this rally. I assure you that God’s willing we are going to win through and through.
“I know Bola Tinubu as he said in his speech for more than 20 years ago and there is no local government area that I didn’t visit from 2003-2011 and I visited all the states in 2019 when I was asking for this second term and the final term.
“I will continue to campaign for Bola Ahmed Tinubu. He is a committed Nigerian and I believe he will give all he has to this country and to you Nigerians.”
Earlier, the APC’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, extolled the leadership qualities of President Buhari, who he described as a “forthright and compassionate leader”.
He said, “Some disgruntled politicians are bent on pitching Buhari against me in a move to undermine the APC and my presidential aspiration.
“But let me tell them that they are wasting their time because the relationship between me and Mr. President has been cordial for over 20 years.”
He promised that under his presidency, Nigeria will recover from all its challenges, adding that he would work hard to take the nation to greater heights.
‘We will work hard. We promise you that your children and grandchildren will have no regret about this nation and ourselves,” he added.
On his part, the National Chairman of the APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, called on residents of the state to vote for all candidates of the party in the 2023 general elections.
