As Presidential aspirants in the APC take their campaign messages round the country, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former Lagos State Governor, has passionately appealed to party delegates in Kano to back his ambition, saying, “choose me, I beg you.”

Tinubu who flew in several hours behind his scheduled time of arrival due to bad weather was received at the Kano airport by a mammoth crowd led by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

Speaking with the delegates at the Coronation Hall, Tinubu said he was in the State to ask for their support and understanding.

“I believe in myself”, Tinubu told the audience, “I’m smart, intelligent and courageous.”

“Don’t make mistake, choose wisely, choose me, I beg you and you will never regret supporting me”, Tinubu noted, saying “I hereby appeal to you to support my presidential ambition by voting for me to clinch the party’s ticket.”

Marshalling out his plan, Tinubu promised to restore the economy, fight insecurity, connect states by road and rebuild the agricultural sector.

Governor Ganduje, who is not hiding his admiration for Tinubu said it was pay-back time.

He explained that Tinubu has worked so hard for the APC, vowing that he will never let the presidential aspirant down.

Ganduje insisted that Nigeria was in search of a candidate who would really appreciate the need to reorder its direction and arrest the drift.

He said he was confident Tinubu has what it takes to lift Nigeria out of its current helpless state and reposition it for greatness.

Earlier, Tinubu had visited some prominent citizens of Kano. They included Aminu Dantata and Yusuf Ali, both elder statesmen.

Tinubu’s visit to Kano is coming on the heels of campaign stops made by Vice President Yemi Osibanjo and Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi, former Minister of Transportation.
