Bola Tinubu, a presidential contender for the All Progressives Congress, advises Lagos’ first-class chiefs to get ready for the election.
After receiving the presidential nomination of the ruling party, Tinubu spoke to the chiefs upon his return to Lagos.
Addressing the chiefs upon returning to Lagos after winning the ruling party’s presidential ticket, Tinubu said;
”White cap chiefs…If you want a white cap from the President, you have to be firm. It is not something funny. It is our time. This is not a funny thing. It is not something you can joke about. It is something that requires prayer. You have to be steadfast with your work. It will come to pass”.
Recall that about two weeks ago, at the APC Presidential primaries held at the Eagles Square, Abuja Tinubu beat Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, former Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi, and Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello, as well as Senate President Ahmad Lawan, Governor David Umahi, Governor Ben Ayade, Pastor Tunde Bakare, and Senator Sani Yerima.
