Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress, has pledged to work hard to continue the achievements of the Buhari administration as he implements the policies outlined in his manifesto.

Tinubu expressed gratitude to President Buhari, whom he said has been supportive, and pledged to work diligently for the benefit of Nigerians.

“I assure you that as you worked hard for me, I will work hard for Nigeria. As you give Nigerians the hope to renew their faith in their country, I will sustain that hope. I will bring it to those who look helpless today.”

All the agendas in our programme, the renewed hope manifesto, will be pursued diligently and vigorously with all our energy,” he said at the grand finale of the APC presidential campaign at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos, on Tuesday.

Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu thanked the people for attending the rally in large numbers and urged them to turn out again on Saturday to vote for APC.

In the meantime, President Buhari, APC Vice Presidential Candidate Senator Kashim Shettima, senators and members of the House of Representatives, and serving governors and former governors, were present at the rally, which was preceded by a campaign train that made its way through various parts of Lagos.

The presidential election is to hold on Saturday and INEC has already accredited over 146, 000 observers.
