2023: I will use agriculture to feed not only Nigeria but Africa – Tinubu


Former Governor of Lagos State and presidential hopeful, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said he will use agriculture to feed not just Nigeria, but Africa in general when elected president.

Tinubu, acclaimed National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) also assured that he will deliver quality governance when elected president of Nigeria in the 2023 general elections.

Tinubu made this known on Sunday when he received the leadership of the Nigeria Diaspora for Asiwaju (NDA) in London in what is his first major public appearance after recently travelling out of Nigeria.

In his remarks, Tinubu thanked NDA for its many activities geared towards promoting his candidacy, saying he believes Nigeria has the requisite human capital development to drive her developmental strides.

He stressed that the human capital that Nigeria is blessed with remains one of his focuses to deliver on quality governance.
The former Lagos State Governor reiterated among others, the need to invest heavily in education in order to address the menace of out-of-school children, stressing that is the fulcrum of development.

He equally stressed the need for Nigeria to be a big exporter of gas to other African countries and indeed other continents.
He expressed confidence that change is a process and that its efficacy lies in the mind of the thinker, adding that he would use agriculture to feed not only Nigeria, but Africa.

NDA is a support group, which has carved a niche for itself in its advocacy for a Tinubu Presidency come 2023.

The group was formed with its headquarters in London and a country office in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) with the mandate to propagate the gospel of a Tinubu presidency.

Leading the group to meet with Tinubu was its Director General, Akin Lee Badeji; the APC-UK Leader, Prince Ade Omole; Director, Media & Publicity, NDA, Prince ‘Lanre Adegun; Women Leader, NDA, Dr. Mrs. Ronke Tomori and other APC UK stalwarts.
During the meeting that lasted for about three hours, Badeji expressed the group’s profound appreciation to Tinubu for inviting them for the meeting.

He noted that NDA is not bankrolled by any money bag or political bigwig, but that they are only advocating for a Tinubu presidency having studied his leadership quality.

“Sir, we have looked around. We have searched. We have combed and we have tourchlighted every nook and cranny of Nigeria with a view to finding a capable hand with the guts, clout, structure, vision, competence and experience to further consolidate on the achievements of the Buhari/Osinbajo-led administration and give Nigeria a new direction; we saw no other person but you,” Badeji said.

Shortly, when asked, contrary to the speculations going round that Tinubu was rushed out of the country for medical attention, Badeji said the presidential hopeful actually travelled for diaspora consultations.

He stressed the move became very germane and necessary following the conclusion of similar exercises, which he had embarked upon in the last couple of weeks.
“It was important the iconic figure interacted with the outside community which included Nigerians in the diaspora of his intention to run for the country’s number one seat,” he said.
