The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said that Nigerians are tired of excuses over the never-ending insecurity and other socio-economic challenges in the country.

He stated this on Saturday, 16 April, during a grand rally organized by youths under the auspices of Progressive Youth of South-West to declare their support for his presidential bid at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Onikan, Lagos.

The youth from different states in the region, like Lagos, Ogun, Osun, Ekiti, Ondo, and Oyo states had converged in Lagos in large numbers to show support for the aspiration of the national leader of the party.

He described the youths as brilliant and encouraged them to team up with him and make Nigeria better.

The former Lagos State governor stressed that it was possible to live in a Nigeria that is free of insecurity, epileptic power supply, disunity, and other forms of negativity.

He challenged the youths to revalidate their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Tinubu said: “All you need is courage, determination, and perseverance, if YouTube alone has 2.9 billion people following it, including you all standing here, then Nigeria can excel, we can do it, you must develop the can-do attitude.

“You must believe that this country is yours and you want to change the story. You must change the story of potential, the story of banditry and tribalism.

“We as a nation can conveniently feed ourselves by being creative, visionary, and committed, anybody who says we cannot, they can get out because it is voluntary. We cannot continue the lamentation of the past, we cannot continue with excuses of power failure, no nation made rapid development without electricity.

“Give us light and if we cannot be successful then you can abuse us, you cannot give us erratic light that is undependable, and then blame us again that we are lazy.

“Nigeria, it is about time, we have enough gas to fire up electricity and supply the rest of Europe and make money, long term from it.

“You know it. We don’t want to bore you with it, when I started we used to pick dead bodies on the streets, but today Lagos is one of the cleanest and most progressive states in the country.”

The South-West youth leaders at the event took their turns to speak on why the youth were promoting the APC National Leader, Asiwaju Tinubu, to become the next president of Nigeria, come 2023.

Speaking, Dr. Muritala Seriki, Dayo Israel, Muhammed Sulaiman, among others applauded the achievements of Tinubu in infrastructure, education, and raising the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of Lagos, while he was governor of the state, saying some of them were his products having brought them to the level they had attained presently.
