What Tinubu Told Edo Residents He’ll Do If He Becomes President
Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former Lagos governor and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has promised to be a “listening president” if he decides to run for the presidency in 2023. Tinubu made the statement during a visit to Edo state, where he met with APC leaders and members of the Edo Progressive Political Forum (EPPF).
“I am here to listen to you, to understand your problems and concerns, and to work together to find solutions,” Tinubu said. “If I decide to run for the presidency, I want to assure you that I will be a president who listens and responds to the needs of the people.”
Tinubu’s visit to Edo state was part of a larger effort by the APC to reach out to voters ahead of the 2023 general elections. The APC has been working to rebrand itself as a party that is in touch with the needs of ordinary Nigerians and that is committed to delivering on its promises.
“We are here to build bridges, not walls,” Tinubu said. “We want to bring our party closer to the people and to listen to their concerns and aspirations. This is the only way we can build a stronger and more united Nigeria.”
Tinubu’s comments were well received by the APC leaders and members of the EPPF, who praised him for his leadership and vision for the country. The former governor is widely seen as a possible presidential candidate for the APC in 2023, and his visit to Edo state was seen as a sign that he is serious about his political aspirations.
“Tinubu is a man of integrity and a true leader,” said one APC member. “I believe that he has what it takes to lead this country and to bring about the change that we so desperately need.”
Tinubu’s visit to Edo state is part of a larger tour of the country, as he continues to reach out to voters and build support for his potential presidential bid. With the 2023 general elections just around the corner, Tinubu’s message of listening and responsiveness is resonating with voters and could give him a strong boost in the race for the presidency.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
