The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has said he will industrialise Nigeria and provide jobs for the youth if elected.
Tinubu also stated that he will tackle the problem of erosion in Anambra State the way he tamed the Atlantic Ocean surge in Lagos.
He stated these in Awka on Tuesday, during his presidential campaign rally.
He took a swipe at the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and the Labour Party’s Mr Peter Obi, saying they cannot be trusted with power.
I have come here to promise you development. We will industrialise Nigeria and Anambra State. You know me, I am the city boy of Lagos; I caged the Atlantic Ocean in Lagos; the way I handled the Atlantic Ocean in Lagos, I will handle the erosion menace in Anambra State,” he said.
Also in Calabar later in the day, Tinubu promised to make Nigeria prosperous.
He said, “Our cities and towns will witness a level of industrial activities unprecedented in our nation’s history.
Youths shall become leading catalysts driving economic resurgence. The allocation of revenue between federal and state governments will be adjusted to give states greater flexibility to foster grassroots economic development.”
