The Presidential hopeful under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reiterated his wish to serve the country.

He said he remains the only one prepared for the Presidential election and the only one to lead the party to victory in 2023.

The National Leader revealed this in Ondo on Thursday during his visit to the delegates ahead of the party presidential primary election scheduled for Sunday.

Tinubu also hailed the performance of the Ondo State governor Rotimi Akeredolu for his leadership role in the state.

He stated that he is not in the race to acquire wealth but to contribute to the development of the country and the people.

“If we look at the missing part of the past, we will stay depressed but if we look straight into the future as a great runner, we will see brightness and happiness.

“Don’t misunderstand Nigeria, it is our country we have no choice. To rebuild is not easy. We created APC and I’m one of its founding fathers of APC; I’m not sorry about it, I’m very proud of it.

“What had been missing in this country is the spirit of unity and the brightness of hope for all of us. The same blood runs in our veins.

“Sorrow, problems and anguish are created by human beings. Divisions are created by those who benefit from the divide and conquer. The truth is we are Nigerians and we hold that greenback passport and we should be proud of it. Yes, it is difficult right now. This is the democracy that we choose.

“My running is not because I need a pocket of money. It is the love of country, my people, commitment to development, and giving value to education and a better future for our children.

“I, Bola Tinubu, I’m the sole runner. I know the way, I have seen it. I did it in Lagos. I turned the IGR around. The state is now a reference point. I’ll rebuild and unite, and develop Nigeria. We’ll use our diversity for prosperity rather than division.

“When they talk about my health, I tell them, I’m not looking for a wrestling job, I don’t want to beat Ronaldo. I’m a better thinker and a better doer. I want to be delegated to distinguish us and separate us like a dip of kerosene on top of the water.”
