Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says he is in the 2023 presidential race to impact the lives of Nigerians positively.
In a tweet on Monday, the former Lagos governor said he is in the race to answer “a higher calling” which is his love for Nigeria.
“We are not here to do what is comfortable. We are here to do what is right for our people and our country,” the tweet reads.
“We are here to answer to a greater, higher calling. That calling is the love of Nigeria. We dare not miss this chance because we cannot be sure of another.”
The APC candidate, whose choice of running mate elicited criticisms in different quarters, has been meeting with political bigwigs to gain their support ahead of the 2023 elections.
Last Tuesday, he had a meeting with Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers state, in France. The latter is reportedly pondering on whether to back the APC candidate in the 2023 presidential election.
As part of his plans for Nigeria, Tinubu said if elected, he would embark on modern infrastructural development across the country, institute financial reforms, and eliminate crimes.
