The Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has expressed strong confidence in the leadership of the national chairman of the party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, saying that he (Adamu) will drive him to Aso Rock.
Tinubu made this assertion on Wednesday while speaking to journalists during his visit to the national secretariat of APC in Abuja on Wednesday.
The APC presidential flag bearer alongside his running mate, Kashim Shettima, speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, and other party chieftains were received by the Senator Abdullahi Adamu-led National Working Committee, NWC during the visit in Abuja.
According to Tinubu; ‘He (Adamu) is going to deliver as the Chairman of the party for me to become the president of Nigeria. And I am very confident of that.
‘We are a party strongly determined to fulfil our dreams of turning Nigeria to a very progressive, highly developed, prosperous country.
‘Thank you so much for the good job you have been doing. I sincerely thank you for the cooperation and collaboration particularly the chairman for various wisdom and interactions that we have been having together.
‘The big masquerade dance is not in the cage but in the market square. And that is what Adamu used to be, full of wisdom, we were governors together, before God put us together on this project again,’ he said.
Tinubu expressed optimism that APC stands unthreatened by the activities of critics, saying he remains committed to advancing rapid development and inclusiveness in Nigeria.
He said, ‘We are not threatened. We are committed and we are very proud of ourselves, we are of an orderly manner, we are committed to democratic principles and values; we are not bickering in any way and you know that. Can you say that of the other parties? We are not spewing fake statistics and wrong figures. Can you say that of other parties? Well, we are what we are, a progressive party.
‘It is a new horizon and we assure them that every Nigerian will benefit and I am very sure that there will be a refreshing change and we will continue development in a rapid way.
‘Let the election be over. That is one step. We have to comply with INEC and regulations regarding the elections, when we finish that, we will unveil to you those things that we have for the country and our objectives, our creed, our commitment should be development and our commitment to transformation, and our determination to bring help to the teeming Nigerians.’
Commending Adamu, Tinubu urged party members to remain progressive in their thinking.
