We must favour reason over sentiment says Tinubu as campaigns kick off

Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has sent a message to Nigerians as the campaigns for the 2023 general election begin on Wednesday.

Tinubu said, “Our nation stands at a threshold of history. We, like almost every other nation in the world, face significant challenges. Some have been our own making, others, the consequences of factors well beyond the control of any Nigerian. One thing, however, remains certain, we cannot afford to get this one wrong.”

In what is seen as a veiled message to those opposed to his Muslim/Muslim ticket, the former Lagos governor said, “we must choose progress. We must favour reason over sentiment.”

The APC had scheduled to kick off their campaign with a special prayer session and a peace walk on Wednesday. It was cancelled a day to the event.
