Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has assured that his administration would break the shackle of poverty and destitution in Nigeria if elected in the 2023 general elections.
Tinubu made the pledge during the inauguration of the Tinubu-Shettima Women Presidential Campaign Team at the State House Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa in Abuja yesterday.
The former Lagos governor told the gathering that the symbol on his cap means “broken shackle”.
“The design on this cap is a “broken shackle”.
“We are breaking the shackle of poverty and destitution.
“In the last eight years, it has been a party that inherited a troublesome nation under the weight of uncertainty.
Tinubu also took a swipe at the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which, he said, ruled ruddelessly and ditching the wool for 16 years, saying they will never rule again.
“A nation is not built on abusive language… 16 years of rudderless and ditching the wool – PDP shall never come back again. Never again.
“Our opponents spent 16 years, they had forgotten that the highway is an economy, electricity is mandatory for industrialisation.
“They don’t understand the transmission lines and the need for maintenance.
“They couldn’t make a down payment for the rail track. They are a political party of termites,” he said.
Tinubu said he is a builder and knows what to do immediately after he claims victory in 2023 and appealed to his supporters to go and tell the world that ”I am a man that knows the way”.
