President Muhammadu Buhari has charged Nigerians and the people of Yobe State to vote for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the next President and vote for Governor Buni as the Governor of Yobe to do a second term.
Buhari spoke at the Damaturu Township stadium to a mammoth Crowd during the All Progressives Congress Presidential campaign rally where he told the people why they should vote for the former Governor of Lagos State because he is the person capable to continue the work of rebuilding Nigeria he started laying a proper foundation to rebuild over seven years ago.
“I accompany Asiwaju here to tell you to vote for him so that he can continue with my legacy of rebuilding Nigeria,” the president said.
While addressing party faithful who trooped out in their large numbers to attend the APC presidential rally in the state, Tinubu in his prepared speech said he will use the newly commissioned Yobe Cargo airport to boost agriculture in the state and praised President Buhari for the airport project and other laudable projects across the country he described as wise investments. It will be greatly needed when our agenda for greater production of agricultural and industrial exports begins to take off.
Tinubu commended the president and security agencies for the success recorded in the battle against insecurity in Yobe and the North east. He said it was an indication of the marked improvement in the security situation in the North-east that Asíwájú Tinubu could spend Monday night in Yobe.
“We will tackle and reduce unemployment. My dream is that you are prosperous and never idle. You will have good jobs or will become thriving entrepreneurs giving jobs to others.
The former Lagos State governor praised the people of the state for being steadfast to the progressives family since the return to democracy in 1999, not allowing the opposition any chance. He sought their support to continue this trend.
He said, “Yobe has always been a progressive state. You have never allowed the locusts to land here and feast on what does not belong to them. Instead, you have been loyal to the progressive cause of building a state and nation both of which have the sole mission of serving their people.
Not failing to mention his plans for security, Tinubu again praised President Buhari for ensuring the people of the state can now move freely without fear, promising to build on this.
APC Chairman Adamu, Senate President Lawan, VP Candidate Shettima and Campaign DG Lalong all addressed the rally in Hausa language, urging Yobe people to vote Tinubu and continue to repose their trust in APC. The APC National Women Leader and other Members of the NWC were present at the rally.
