He promised to fight banditry and insurgency, ensure qualitative education, adequate power supply, industralistion, food security, physical security, among other Democratic dividends.

The APC presidential candidate advised Nigerians never to support a party (People’s Democratic Party) which ruled for 16 years, spent $16 billion on power supply, without anything to show for it.

Tinubu positioned himself as the best presidential candidate to redeem Nigeria, saying, “we are only three left (in the presidential race), one just failed the most important examination when he was asked: ‘are you a divider or Uniter, and he said ‘I am from the North… “

Making reference to the National Anthem, Tinubu said the time has come when Nigerians should do away with ethnic interest and promote national unity and cohesion.

He re-emphasized his desire to devote hundred percent of his time and energy to serve, lead and unite the country, saying, “no one will come and divide us again. Let me ask which one you will take: here is the right hand giving you hundred percent, and the other hand is giving you 50 percent, I am sure you will take hundred percent. I am the only one that gives you 100 per cent.

“I promised 100 percent, I Will give you 100 percent. Even Dubai is 50 percent. We will be better than Dubai. We are giving you a blueprint that is progressive.

” I just want to thank you for the endorsement. I just want to thank you for your prayers, commitment, and support.

“During our primary election, I spoke with most of you Ulamas, you offered me your prayers. You should be proud that I am standing before you today. It is only few steps away to become the President. So, your prayers are answered.”

In his remarks, Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, described the occasion as historic and urged the Tijjania Sect to support the Tinubu/Shetima presidential ticket.

The leader of the Tijjania Sect in Kano, Khalifa Bashir Tijjani Usman presented the position paper of the Tijjania Shura Council to Tinubu.

Their demand to Tinubu if elected president include string and realistic national security, sustainable food production, adequate power supply, creation of state police, youth development, healthcare delivery, education development, inclusion of Tijjania members in constitution review, and appointment in leadership positions.
