We’ll return farming to its glorious past, Tinubu tells supporters at APC rally in Niger


Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says he will make strategic investments in industry and infrastructure to boost the economy of Niger state.


According to Tunde Rahman, his spokesperson, the former Lagos governor said this on Wednesday during the APC campaign in Minna, the Niger capital.


He also said one of the projects he will embark on if voted as president is to dredge the River Niger.


“Your state has ample resources and large potential. Not only does Niger cover the largest land mass of any state in Nigeria, but it also serves as the home to three hydroelectric power plants that symbolically light the way forward to hope renewed,” he said.


“By God’s grace, I shall be elected. If so, my administration will further empower Niger state so that you reap the full benefits of its bounteous resources. We appreciate your vital role as the state that powers the nation. The nation will show its gratefulness by investing in its future. The power state will become the more powerful state.


“Our economic plan will make strategic investments in industry and infrastructure, giving our talented people the chance to make a good living while producing valuable goods that will improve the quality of life for those who buy them.


“Federal roads such as the Minna-Bida road, Lambata-Bida road, Suleja-Minna road, Birnin Gwari-Jebba road, and Minna-Kotangora road will be improved such that they become better avenues of travel and commerce for wellbeing and prosperity of all of us.


 “My action plan calls for a modern railway network such that you shall be able to move the things you make and produce to markets throughout Nigeria, West Africa, and beyond.


“We must continue to plant and grow the seed of food security by pressing forward with the expansion of our agricultural sector. We will return farming to its glorious past by giving it an even better future. We shall ensure that farmers realise the full value of their produce. Commodity exchange boards will set minimum prices for strategic agricultural produce, ensure our farmers do not toil in vain but earn a decent income for their toil.”
