Tinubu Claims that Prayers Helped Him Win Party Ticket

Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Presidential candidate for the APC, has attributed his success at the party’s National convention to prayers. Tinubu stated that his response to the gang-up against him and his presidential bid in the party was to pray.

Tinubu made this known when he visited the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu on Sunday, June 19 2022.

Explaining his reason for pushing for the actualization of this dream, he said “There is no Lagos indigene that has had the opportunity to become President of Nigeria, despite the contribution of the state to 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.”

Tinubu then went on to solicit the support of Lagosian going into the elections next year. “The most important task is to get the people to vote for me in the 2023 presidential election.

“We need to take this message to our people across communities, and sensitize them on the need to vote in the general elections.”
