Former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has asked Nigerian citizens to view the upcoming election as a revolutionary platform for the change they need to become a reality by casting their votes wisely through the use of their Permanent Voters Card (PVC). Tinubu made the press statement after he commissioned Kano Corporate Security Institute and other projects carried out by the State Governor, Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso.
APC National Leader, Tinubu urged Nigerians to support Buhari‘s vision for a better Nigeria. He stated;
My message is that they should see the forthcoming election as a common sense revolution; common sense revolution to reform, re-change, get relieve, security of lives and property, eliminate corruption, and deception, recovery of the economy.
This is the first nation that is moved from the platoon of economic prosperity. For oil to be selling at the highest price per barrel ever experienced in the world and to plummet to below 50 per cent and taking the country to recession at the same time; and if you cast your mind back to some few years back, various governors of this country and the entire population are being deceived about the excess crude.
Tinubu also talked about the rate of Naira to Dollar and how it affects the economy badly.
You said you want to save for the rainy day, they say we are saving for sovereign wealth–if there is a save for sovereign wealth and if there is a save for the rainy day – is it not a Tsunami now to move from exchange rate of 110 to 210, 220.
What is the position of our foreign reserve, where is the savings as regards to the rainy day from the excess crude oil account? Where is the sovereign wealth and how much are they spending to support the Naira every week?
Why did they have a U-turn and move away from what they called the Dutch auction and the manufacturers that will keep the economy buoyant and going are not being supported because they are having a low foreign exchange to even support the factory and the manufacturing industries? Those are the areas that Nigerians will have to shine their eyes, be determined and create the revolution with their PVC. Please vote for change.
Tinubu however praised Kwankwaso‘s administration for their effectiveness and achievements so far in Kano State which he claimed to be visible.
We all know that without security, there can be no direct foreign investment and economic progress in any society. In a state like Kano state that is a very large state, with a high population density, vehicular density, industrialization is very very important; and to have to educate and develop the skill of those who are to provide security, intelligence information and be able to cope with those challenges, the far-sightedness of the government–in the long-run, Kano has been lucky.
I am extremely not only impressed but I am very proud that we have a vision, a commitment for a vision and sincere value in this government under Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso.
