President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday called the electorate to vote for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as president to continue his (Buhari) legacy.
Buhari, who spoke in Hausa, gave the advice during the presidential campaign of the ruling APC in Damaturu, Yobe State.
The President said he joined Tinubu in the rallies because he wanted to tell Nigerians to vote for him (Tinubu).
“Vote for him so that he can continue with my legacy of rebuilding Nigeria.
“He is the person capable to continue the work of rebuilding Nigeria I started over seven years ago.”
Addressing party faithful who trooped out to Damaturu Township Stadium, Tinubu promised to ensure greater agricultural production for self-sustainability.
Asiwaju said that the cargo airport the President commissioned would be greatly needed “when our agenda for greater production of agricultural and industrial exports begins to take off”.
He described the airport project as a wise investment made with courage and foresight.
“It will be needed to transport Yobe’s excellent sesame, hibiscus and gum Arabic to the rest of the world.
