I’ll Build An Export-Driven Economy – Tinubu

At Campaign Launch

The Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has said that he wants to become the next president of Nigeria because he knows the way to make it a prosperous country.




Tinubu stated this at the unveiling of his Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) and the Action Plan of the APC at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Friday.

At the event which was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari and other senior officials of the ruling party, Tinubu said, “My experience and past performance have shown that it will be through collective effort and national endeavour, crossing the divides and achieving our vision. I ask you to join Senator Shettima and I on this journey.”

On his agenda for Renewed Hope for Nigeria, the APC presidential candidate said standing on the foundation emplaced by the current administration, his administration would, among other things, build a Nigeria, especially for the youth, where sufficient jobs with decent wages create better lives.

He said his administration would export more and import less in order to earn more foreign exchange and strengthen the naira.

“We will deliver food security and affordability by continuing to prioritise agriculture and assist farmers and other players in the agricultural value chain through the enlightened agricultural policy that promotes productivity and guarantees robust income.  

“We will modernise and expand public infrastructure to stimulate economic growth at an optimal rate, as well as generate, transmit and distribute affordable electricity to give our people the necessary power to drive their businesses and brighten their homes.  

“Our national economy will grow, succeed and be respected. We will embolden and support young people and women to participate more in politics and governance, harnessing emerging sectors such as the digital economy, entertainment, tourism, sports to build today for the Nigeria of tomorrow,” he said.

Tinubu also promised to provide economic opportunities to people living with disabilities, the poor and vulnerable, saying, “We will build a Nigeria where no parent is compelled to send a child to bed hungry.”
