All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has advised Nigerians to elect leaders that would make a difference in their lives.
Tinubu stated this while calling for prayers for peaceful, free, and fair elections in 2023.
The APC presidential flagbearer was quoted in a statement by his Media Office to felicitate with Muslims on the occasion of the Eid-el-Maulud Festival.
Tinubu said Nigerians “must elect only leaders committed and determined to make the required difference in our lives.”
He urged Muslim faithful to extend love and goodness to one another and imbibe the virtues of Prophet Muhammed, which include tolerance, forgiveness, peaceful coexistence and sacrifice.
He also asked Muslim Ummah and others to pray that Nigeria overcome its present challenges.
The statement partly read, “Governments at all levels must immediately extend relief materials to them, take efforts to mitigate the effects of the disaster and initiate measures against future occurrence.
“It is regrettable and hurtful to see hundreds of our people rendered homeless and forlorn with their properties, farmlands and other valuables lost to the floods.
“And as we go into another round of elections next year, let me also use this opportunity to seek prayers for a peaceful, hitch-free and successful election.
“We must elect only leaders committed and determined to make the required difference in our lives. Let us pray for President Muhammadu Buhari and other leaders to continue to do their utmost for the country.”
