Former Lagos State Governor Bola Tinubu paid a visit to Kano on Thursday night to solicit support from delegates of the All Progressives Congress presidential primaries (APC).
Mr Tinubu met with APC leaders and delegates in Kano’s Government House’s Coronation Hall.
His visit comes only days after Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and former Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amechi visited the state to court delegates.
Kano has the highest number of delegates for the APC presidential convention set to hold at the end of May.
While canvassing for votes of the delegates, the former Lagos State Governor urged them not to make a mistake of voting anybody other than him.
“I hereby appeal to you to support my presidential ambition by voting for me to clinch the party’s ticket at the forthcoming primary election.
“Today is the day I have come to ask for your support to be president of Nigeria. You can put me there with your votes.
“I believe in myself, I’m smart, intelligent and courageous, don’t make mistake, choose wisely, choose me, I beg you and you will never regret supporting me,” he said.
The APC chieftain said he would tackle insecurity, revamp the economy, provide good roads to enable farmers to bring their produce to market.
Tinubu further said that he would develop and make the agricultural sector more lucrative. He said Nigeria needs the formation of a commodity exchange mechanism.
“Commodity exchange is to guarantee to the farmers that there is a market for all the produce that is coming,” he said.
The national leader of APC also commended Governor Ganduje for his strides in developing the state.
On his part, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje said it was pay-back time, revealing that Mr Tinubu worked assiduously for the growth of the APC.
Mr Ganduje said that Nigerians were yearning for a candidate who really understands the challenges of the nation and who is experienced enough to reposition the country.
