The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, will arrive Cross River State for a Town Hall Meeting with the party’s stakeholders in the South-South on Tuesday.
The APC Deputy Director, Presidential Campaign Council South-South and Chairman of Media and Publicity Local Organising Committee of the visit, Dr. Julius Okputu, disclosed this and said everything is set for the engagement.
He said Tinubu had set a standard for good governance when he was governor of Lagos State, therefore Cross River has set an agenda for the development of the state when he becomes president.
“The history of this country is replete with evidence of exemplary governance and Lagos State is often described as a centre of excellence and mini Nigeria and is a representative sample of an oasis, a cynosure of a working template in our democracy.
“His Excellency, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, is the
progenitor of that exemplary legacy,” he said.
According to him, Tinubu’s “Cabinet in 1999 had a pan Nigeria outlook, with which he executed policies and initiatives that branded and separated Lagos State from the ordinary Nigerian box.
“He believes in the inherent capacity of every child, man and woman to advance public interest productively. His determination to continue to forge common fronts in fostering our oneness has kept us together; the sacrifice to secure our fundamental rights to vote and be voted for within an unfettered democratic space makes the essential of Asiwaju Presidency in 2023 a necessity.”
