The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has promised to serve Nigeria “tirelessly, faithfully and honestly” if he emerges the president in the February 25 election.
Tinubu said he purposely surrounded himself with brilliant youths because he believed in a democracy of ideas, teamwork and collaboration.
According to him, he will create a thriving digital economy where those interested in pursuing careers of integrity in ICT will be able to do so.
Tinubu stated these on Friday in his address delivered during a town hall meeting with youths in Abuja organised by Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State with the theme, ‘Nigeria 2023: Setting the youth agenda’.
He said, “If given the opportunity to be your president, I will serve tirelessly, faithfully and honestly. I will incorporate the energy, innovation and determination of youths all across my cabinet.
“I will create a thriving and conducive environment for you to complete your education, start work or start a business, and earn a decent wage. With hard work and focus, you will once again be able to buy a car or a motorbike, buy a house, settle down, start a family and create a better life. I have plans to actualize all these dreams and can confirm that with your support these dreams will become a reality.
“The time is now. I am offering up myself, my skills, my expertise, my passion and my track record to usher us into a better future. In this future hope is renewed, security is restored, opportunities are available, and good success is achievable. My running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima and I are here today with a message for renewed hope. It is anchored on a promise for a secure and prosperous Nigeria.
