The presidential campaign team for the incumbent All Progress Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and Kashim Shettima has pledged to run an open and truthful campaign that will reflect the difficulties that Nigerians are currently facing.
The deputy spokesperson, APC presidential campaign, Hannatu Musawa started this on Wednesday in an interview on The Morning Show with Arise TV.
She said, “We are running an honest campaign and we are going to be honest with Nigerians. What we want is to run a campaign based on issues. No mood slinging, all this back-and-forth is not necessary.
“We want to be able to introduce the Nigerian electorate to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima and the programmes and vision they have for the nation.
“We are hopefully very soon going to unveil this manifesto and Nigeria will be able to understand and really see through the eyes of Tinubu how he hopes to move this country forward in the most positive way,” she said.
Currently, Tinubu is working with a highly capable team to adjust and adapt his manifesto to the changing dynamics of Nigeria, according to Musawa, who added that “very soon you will have the manifesto and he will be able to present it.”
“Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is a man that was ready from day-1. He has worked towards this objective and goal for a long time so he has had the manifesto already on the table,” Musawa added.
She added that the campaign’s objective was to divert attention from religion, Muslim-Muslim relations, and any other related topics.
Musawa added that the campaign organization intends to build on the accomplishments of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and present a variety of strategies and plans for how the Tinubu-Shittima presidency will handle the areas where the government has faced difficulties.
“There are areas we would consolidate to bring to our campaign. There have been areas of challenges there’s no doubt and it would be an injustice to us and to the Nigerian population to pretend that there have not been any challenges,” she said.
