The Director General of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Simon Lalong, has said that Nigerians are grateful to Lagos for giving them the best candidate in the 2023 general election.
Lalong, who is the Governor of Plateau State, said this at the APC Presidential Campaign Rally held at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos on Saturday.
He said that Tinubu is the most suitable person to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in May 2023 by the grace of God.
The campaign DG said that the former Lagos governor has national acceptance as the next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“His records of performance in Lagos stand him out as a good manager of people and resources who can make something out of even the most difficult situation.
“He has demonstrated that he can take Nigeria to greater heights through ideas and assembling the best brains.
“He is not a man who talks too much but his results cannot be hidden.
“Since he became Governor of Lagos State, the commercial capital of Nigeria has never been the same again.
“He did not only govern well, but handed over to people that he trained who have carried on with his legacies and also brought up more ideas.
“That is the hallmark of a leader who thinks about the next generation and not just today,” Lalong said.
He added that Tinubu has over the years prepared for this moment by building bridges and reaching out to people from other parts of Nigeria which explains why “everywhere you go in Nigeria today, it is Jagaban and others”.
He maintained that from what happened at the flag-off in Jos to the mammoth crowds in Delta and Ebonyi States recently, it was very clear that Nigerians have decided to go with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima.
Lalong reminded Lagosians that “charity begins at home”.
