Says the more, the merrier

Frontline presidential aspirant on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has welcomed the multiple aspirants jostling for the sole presidential ticket of the party.

Tinubu, who was the first to officially declare his intention to run on the party’s platform, said the more the people indicate interest in the plum job, the merrier.

The former Lagos State governor also congratulated the President for the successful Eid-el-Fitr celebrations across Nigeria, as well as his genuine efforts at confronting the challenges bedevilling the country for a sustainable future.

Asked for his comments on the multiple numbers of people declaring their intentions to contest the presidency on the platform of the APC, Tinubu said, “The more they come, the more challenging it becomes for you to think deeply, focus on issues and be ready to serve Nigeria. It’s all about service, it’s nothing else. Think wisely, get committed to your thinking to serve the nation and bring progress and prosperity to the lives of Nigerians”.

While looking forward to a transparent and rancour-free presidential primaries, Tinubu allayed fears being expressed in some quarters over the ability of the ruling party to remain strong and united in the build-up to the general elections.
