What I told APC screening panel — Tinubu

Presidential aspirant Bola Tinubu on Monday told the John Oyegun-led APC screening committee that he is most qualified to be the party’s candidate because of his work in Lagos.

The committee is to screen the 23 aspirants contesting to be president of Nigeria on the platform of APC. Screening will end on Tuesday.

According to a statement by the spokesman of Tinubu Campaign Organisation, Bayo Onanuga, Tinubu cited his success as governor of Lagos State, his raising the internal revenue generation of the state from a paltry N600m monthly, which has now grown to N51billion today.

He also cited his invitation to Enron to begin the first state-backed power generation in Nigeria and how Nigeria will need to take the power transmission lines as a highway.

“Tinubu in his answers demonstrated vast knowledge in economic management and perfect understanding of Nigeria’s political economy.

“The screening Committee expressed satisfaction with Tinubu’s knowledge of the economy and sociopolitical issues that are affecting the country,” the statement added.
