The presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has said though Nigerians may be hungry, the hunger can be managed, because President Muhammadu Buhari has created a path out of any hunger crisis.
Tinubu, who eulogised Buhari yesterday, while speaking at a ceremony to flag-off the Kolmani Integrated Development Project (KIPRO), which is the first oil drilling project in Northern Nigeria, located at the Bauchi and Gombe States’ boundary, described the President as a retired general who came to rescue his country.
Speaking at the event, the former Lagos governor told the President that history will be kind to him because he took over power when things were gloomy in the country. “Whatever they say in their social media, traditional comments, and write-ups, history will be very kind to you, because you are in the class of great retired generals who came to rescue their country”, Tinubu said.
“We may be hungry but we can manage our hunger; we don’t want to kill each other. Today, you gave us a path to prosperity, a path to success. We cannot stay hungry and starve to death. We have to take care of ourselves unless they pay compensation to us; that is where we stand.
“Anytime we discuss the lack of food and the challenges of terrorism, you will talk about Lake Chad. Okay, let me assure you, if I’m elected the president, I will recharge Lake Chad”, he stated.
President Buhari had flagged-off the project yesterday amid tight security.
