The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has given reasons why the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should not return to power in next year’s election.
He described the opposition party as a party of “termites”, which failed to fight the infrastructure battle as the ruling party for 16 years.
Tinubu spoke at the inauguration of the Tinubu-Shettima Women Presidential Campaign Team hosted by First Lady Aisha Buhari at the Old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Hailing the women for their unity of purpose and dedication, Tinubu said he entered the race to give hope to Nigerians.
He said: “To the women gathered here today, help is here, hope is here, assurance is here, the promise is here, prosperity is here, security is here. Banditry has ended, hopelessness is not part of our dictionary; we are confident people, unity is here; diversity is here; prosperity is here.
“As Nigerians, we’re not going to give up. The sign on this cap is ‘broken shackles’. You break the shackle of poverty, break the shackle of ignorance, break the shackle of destitution, break the shackles of failures. God will bless us. We will break that shackle, we will succeed as Nigerians”.
President Muhammadu Buhari, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, urged party chieftains to take advantage of the huge women population and seek votes from the nook and crannies of the country.
