Why Atiku, Peter Obi, Kwankwaso, Others Can’t Match My Records – Tinubu

The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu says he has a track record that can not be matched by his competitors in the 2023 presidential elections.

It has been reported that the APC candidate is contesting the February 25 presidential election alongside his counterparts in the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar; Labour Party, Peter Obi; and the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP; Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

Tinubu, who consistently harped on his achievements during his tenure as the governor of Lagos state, made this assertion in an opinion piece published in The Economist.

The APC candidate said, during his tenure as governor, he unveiled a “legacy of technocratic governance which was instituted by enlisting talent from the private sector. Insecurity and crime were tackled through better funding of the police force.

“For this vital task, I have a track record my competitors cannot match. During my tenure as governor of Lagos between 1999 and 2007, the state went from being a difficult, often dangerous place to a development success story.

We quadrupled state tax revenues, putting those funds directly to work through investing in public services and infrastructure. A legacy of technocratic governance was instituted by enlisting talent from the private sector.

Insecurity and crime were tackled through better funding of the police force. Investment and the business sector thrived. Today, Lagos would rank among Africa’s ten largest economies and does not rely on oil revenues to fund its budget.”
