Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said he would secure Nigeria against the acts of terrorism, banditry, and kidnapping.
He spoke during a campaign stop at the Mallam Aminu Kano Triangle, Dutse, in Jigawa state. Tinubu also advised electorate not to return the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) calls it the “locusts”.
“You did the courageous job of chasing away the locusts eight years ago; do not trust their deceptive promises,” he told a crowd of supporters.
“Do not let them back into power. Like locusts, they will devour everything in their path,” Tinubu said, according to a statement by his media aide Tunde Rahman.
The APC candidate said his power should be voted into power, because it has “a track record of delivering prosperity to the people.”
He said, “Vote for the people with the vision, the capacity, the competence and the integrity to do what is right. Vote for responsive and responsible leadership. Vote for us. Vote for the APC on February 25 and March 11.”
“Most importantly, we will secure our nation and defeat the menace posed by evil criminals, kidnappers, bandits and terrorists. We will sweep them away. Broom!
“We will do so by recruiting and deploying more security personnel across the various agencies, improving their equipment and training and deploying top shelf technology to improve ground and aerial surveillance in key and dangerous areas,” he added.
