“Majority of the people from Northern Nigeria believe that when the Presidency is zoned to the Southern part of the country, there is this single person that has the capacity, capability and charisma to take Nigeria to the promised land and the man is no any other person than His Excellency, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu.
“It is a fact that His Excellency Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu is a champion for progress and development as it was evident with his antecedents while he was the Governor of Lagos State.
