The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has said he is strong and ready to campaign across the country.
It has been reported that there have been debates and speculations over the physical health of the former Lagos State Governor ahead of a demanding campaign schedule.
However, in a statement on Wednesday, the APC Presidential candidate promised to personally take his campaign promises to every part of the country.
Tinubu noted that the nation stands at a threshold of history and that Nigerians cannot afford to get this wrong, asking the citizens to learn from the mistakes of the past.
He, however, asked Nigerians to join him and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, on the campaign journey as the ruling party set its shared vision of Renewed Hope for the Nigerian people.
The statement read in part: “Today marks the official commencement of 2023 presidential election campaign activities across this country.
I invite all Nigerians to join me and HE Senator Kashim Shettima on this exciting and important journey as we set our shared vision of Renewed Hope for the people of our dear country, Nigeria.
We will, in weeks and months ahead, be taking our dream of a functional, safe, secure and prosperous Nigeria to every part of Nigeria and as we continue to put forward our plan to lead this country towards its best future.
Our nation stands at a threshold of history. We, like almost every other nation in the world, face significant challenges. Some have been our own making, others, the consequences of factors well beyond the control of any Nigerian. One thing, however, remains certain, we cannot afford to get this one wrong.
We must show that we have learned from mistakes of the past. We must be prepared to make difficult decisions. We must be wise, we must be discerning; we must choose progress. We must favour reason over sentiment.
I am prepared and ready, with my running mate, to provide the leadership that will inspire our country to greater glory with new thinking, innovative ideas and vision.”
