In his 20-page paragraph foreword, the presidential candidate listed basic healthcare, education and housing as key areas of focus.
He also promised to establish a bold and assertive policy to aid strong and adaptive national security architecture that will end terrorism.
“When I was governor of Lagos State, my team and I developed institutions and policies that changed the face of the state.
‘’It became a safe place for residents and an engine room of prosperity for all those willing to work in pursuit of their economic dreams.
‘’What my team and I achieved in Lagos, together we all can achieve for Nigeria.
‘’Our objective is to foster a new society based on shared prosperity, tolerance, compassion and the unwavering commitment to treat each citizen with equal respect and due regard,’’ he said.
While promising to build on the legacy of President Buhari and the APC, Tinubu said ‘’ standing on the foundation emplaced by the current administration, we shall build a Nigeria, especially for our youth, where sufficient jobs with decent wages create a better life.
‘’Our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) was founded on the premise that the people of our beloved country are entitled to the benefits that only progressive good governance can procure.’’
