Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has donated N100 million to flood victims in Kano.

 

According to NAN, Tinubu announced the donation during a dinner organised in his honour by the Kano business community council on Saturday.

 

He said the donation was aimed at alleviating the sufferings of the victims in the affected LGAs in the state.

 

He, however, called for sustained prayers to end flood disasters in the state and across the nation.

 

Tinubu noted that the federal government had taken several measures to build infrastructure and improve the ease of doing business across the country.

 

He further promised that, if elected, he would ensure that Nigeria’s diversity served as a source of prosperity for all.

 

“Unity in diversity, peace and prosperity are the fulcrum of my mission in this contest,” he said.

 

The APC presidential candidate pledged to reposition existing industries and make them a competitive source of industrialisation and growth, not just for the North or Kano, but the entire country.

 

He also commended Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of the state, for his stride in infrastructure development.

 

Tinubu, who described Ganduje as a “friend and a reliable partner”, said that the relationship between Kano and Lagos dated years of similarities between the two economic giants.

 

The APC presidential candidate also promised the business community that he would provide enabling environment for businesses to thrive in the state.

 

He thanked the business community for the honour and promised to look into their blueprint if elected.

 

“If we win the election, we will call your representatives and see how we can move the nation forward,” he said.

 

Tinubu further promised that, when he gets into power, he would ensure that Nigeria’s diversity served as a source of prosperity for all.

 

“Unity in diversity, peace and prosperity are the fulcrum of my mission in this contest,” he said.

 

On his part, Ganduje said Tinubu has the capacity to provide the needed leadership that would consolidate and continue to ensure the country’s democratic gains.

 

“Kano is APC and APC is Kano. So, our people are on board, and we are soliciting their support as usual,” he explained.

 

Ganduje said Tinubu is a leader who would unite and move the nation forward.

 

He equally charged all party members to remain united and focused as the party moved with Nigerians to victory in 2023.
