APC Chieftain and Presidential aspirant on the platform of ruling APC, Bola Tinubu, on Thursday night visited Kano State to seek the support of delegates ahead of the party's presidential primary.
Tinubu met with APC leaders and delegates at the Coronation Hall, Government House, Kano.
His visit comes days after two presidential aspirants, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amechi, visited the state to also woo the delegates.
While canvassing for votes of the delegates, the former Lagos State governor urged them not to make the mistake of voting for anybody other than him.
“I hereby appeal to you to support my presidential ambition by voting for me to clinch the party’s ticket at the forthcoming primary election.
“Today is the day I have come to ask for your support to be president of Nigeria. You can put me there with your votes.
“I believe in myself, I’m smart, intelligent, and courageous. Don’t make a mistake, choose wisely, choose me, I beg you and you will never regret supporting me,” he said.
The APC chieftain said he would tackle insecurity, revamp the economy, and provide good roads to enable farmers to bring their produce to the market.
Tinubu further said that he would develop and make the agricultural sector more lucrative and that the country needs the formation of a commodity exchange mechanism.
“Commodity exchange is to guarantee to the farmers that there is a market for all the produce that is coming,” he said.
The National leader of APC also commended Governor Ganduje for his strides in developing the state.
On his part, Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje said it was pay-back time, revealing that Tinubu worked assiduously for the growth of the APC.
Ganduje said that Nigerians were yearning for a candidate who really understands the challenges of the nation and who is experienced enough to reposition the country.
Earlier, the party chairman, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas, commended Tinubu for the role he played in developing Lagos and urged him to replicate the same in the country.
NAN reports that the National leader of APC, who inspected and inaugurated some projects, had earlier visited elder stateman, Alhaji Aminu Dantata, and Alhaji Yusuf Ali.
