On Monday in Yola, the capital of Adamawa State, President Muhammadu Buhari, a member of the All Progressives Congress, joined the party’s campaign train.
Following the official start of the presidential campaigns, Buhari made his second appearance on the campaign trail. He urged voters to support Tinubu for president, saying he would work for them and transform the nation.
He encouraged the party’s presidential nominee, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to enlist voter support for all of the party’s candidates.
Speaking of Buhari, who also graced the campaign rally, Tinubu said the former military head of state has laid a solid foundation for the country and promised to build on it if elected.
The APC candidate also thanked the president, for attending the rally, saying he was deeply honoured by the gesture.
Taking a swipe at his counterpart from the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, the former Lagos State governor was quoted as saying, “I hear that a former vice president who comes from Adamawa wants to return to Aso Villa again. You have to decide whether you owe him your vote simply because he is from here or whether you owe yourself a better nation and future.
“If you believe a better tomorrow is possible, then you cannot support Vice President Privatise Everything. If you give him the nation, he will sell all he can and leave you with nothing.”
Tinubu also called on the people of Adamawa State to make history by electing the first female governor in the country by voting for Senator Ayishatu Binani, who is the APC candidate in the state.
“She is brilliant, driven, and result-oriented. She will perform better for the state,” Tinubu said at the rally, which was held at the Maidoki Ground, Yola.
In his remarks, the APC National Chairman, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, called on voters to elect Tinubu for president and Sen. Binani for governor of Adamawa State.
