I was almost fed up in battle to secure APC ticket, prayer helped me – Tinubu
The APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on Sunday said he was almost fed up in the battle to secure the presidential ticket of the party..
He he had to resort to prayer when he was almost fed up and that he poured out his mind when he felt the gang up against him.
He spoke when he paid a visit on the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu in his palace to seek royal blessing.
Tinubu recalled that his victory at the party’s presidential primaries did not come easy, noting that he fought a hard battle to clinch the ticket.
He said: “There is no Lagos indigene that has had the opportunity to become President of the Nigeria, despite the contribution of the State to the national stability and progress. The highest position attained by any Lagosian in national leadership is the position of Chief Judge of the Federation.
“I took up the fight to break this jinx. The battle to secure the APC ticket was hard. When I was almost fed up, I resorted to prayers. I also poured out my mind when I felt there was a gang up against my person. Thank God that I have brought home the presidential ticket.
The task ahead is to galvanise our people to get their voter cards and vote to enable us realise this ambition. Getting our people to vote is the most important task before all of us.
“We need to take this message to our people across communities and sensitise them on the need to vote in the general elections.”
Akiolu, who described Tinubu as his “stubborn son”, said it was time for political leaders in Southwest region to close ranks and work for the victory of Tinubu at the 2023 presidential election.
He said the massive support received by the APC National Leader across the country must be complemented by politicians in the region.
The monarch said: “Your emergence as presidential candidate of your party is the beginning of another journey in your political career. All Yoruba ancestors shall be with you on this journey to make our fatherland a better place.”.
