Tinubu promises to ‘recharge’ Lake Chad if elected
The standard bearer of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has promised to ‘recharge’ the Lake Chad if elected president come 2023.
The former Lagos state governor made the vow on Tuesday during the inauguration of the commercial production of crude oil and gas from the Kolmani Integrated Development Project.
While speaking on the issue of food scarcity and terrorism, Tinubu said “Each time we discuss the lack of food and the challenges of terrorism, you will talk about Lake Chad.
“Let me assure you, if I am elected the president, I will ‘recharge’ Lake Chad.”
Speaking about the oil drill production which was the first in the North, Tinubu stated that the inauguration was a “renewed hope” for the country.
He further linked the event to his manifesto titled ‘A Renewed Hope’.
Tinubu said, “While we were debating, I insisted that our title for the manifesto will be ‘a renewed hope’, not knowing that today will happen. And today, it is happening. It is a renewed hope for Nigeria.”
