The senator representing Lagos Central, Senator Remi Tinubu, has said that her husband and APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will not make “bogus promises” in his bid to win the 2023 presidential election.

She said this in an interview with AIT on Friday, shortly after President Muhammadu Buhari presented the 2023 Appropriation Bill to the Joint Session of the National Assembly.

Senator Tinubu said that Buhari has done good work in laying a good foundation for a better Nigeria.

According to her, this was noticeable in infrastructural projects like rail, road networks, bridges, and power.

She said that her husband would deploy his experience as a former Lagos governor to build on the president’s foundation to fix the nation’s challenges.

“Like I said, he’s not a magician to just fix every problem in Nigeria, he(Buhari) inherited some. One of the things that gladden my heart is that he’s done well in laying foundations. We’ve seen that happen in the example of Lagos.

“When you’re building a huge building, people won’t know what goes into the foundation. I think he’s done well, and we can only wish and hope for a greater Nigeria.

“When you end something there should be other options. We pray that our administration comes on board. And that’s why when you transition and you lay certain foundations, work would have been done because what is eight years to fix a country? A country that when you inherited it wasn’t really there.

“And we can see that a lot has been done. He spoke about the rail, road network, the bridges they’ve done, power, and a lot of things. Nigeria has a very good prospect, and we can only hope for the best.

“Everybody should also play their part. Don’t worry, we(Tinubu’s administration) will fix it, that’s all I can tell you. It’s good to always raise your bar and work towards that. You don’t know other partnerships they have in making. You don’t expect him as who he is to come and start making bogus promises,” Remi Tinubu said.
