The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, is contesting the presidency to make Nigeria a better country for everyone, the Grand Patron of the APC (North-Central), Hajiya Mariam Salihu, has said.
According to her, Tinubu is not contesting the February 25 election to enrich himself.
She stated this during an empowerment forum organised by the National Agenda for Greater Asiwaju, one of the numerous support groups for Tinubu.
She said, “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a strategist, he’s selfless. He’s in the presidency to reposition Nigeria as a better country for all and the future. Nigeria will be peaceful under Asiwaju; he has the money, and influence. Hes not contesting the presidency for himself but for all.
“If you look at everybody around him, he did not only empower only those around him, his empowerment cut across the country. That is the kind of leader we want. Asiwaju is somebody that is proactive, he is somebody that is selfless, he is somebody that is not after himself. If Asiwaju is someone who is after himself, I don’t think he would want to be the president of this country.”

Earlier, the Coordinator of NAGA and Deputy Director, APC Presidential Campaign Council, Hajiya Hadiza Vatsa, said that she organised the empowerment programme in order to celebrate Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima.
She said NAGA had intensified efforts towards meeting their promise of delivering 2.5 million votes for the Tinubu.
According to her, the empowerment programme was to pass a message to Nigerians that Tinubu was a good product to vote for in the forthcoming election.
“I am convinced that when we elect Tinubu and Shettima come February 25, peace will reign in Nigeria. There will not be any problem. When there is no peace, there is nothing. Peace is all we need for rapid development of the country.
“Tinubu is a complete gentleman. I go to the grassroots to solicit support for Tinubu. All the ills of the country will be a thing of the past if we vote Tinubu.
“I call on all women and youth in the country to come out en masse and vote for Ahmed Tinubu in the February election.”
