The All Progressives’ Congress APC Presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that his administration will leverage on the existing tourism potentials in the state to turn it into international standard, if elected into office.
He stated this while addressing a mammoth crowd at the U. J. Essuene Stadium, Calabar.
He was accompained by his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima and many other party stakeholders.
He said: “We will turn the water surroundings and the Atlantic of Cross River State to be better than Florida.”
“Money will come in, this state will become wonders of tourism in Nigeria. We are promise keepers, he further stated “,
“We mean what we say. When we took over in Lagos, we said what we’ll do in Lagos, and we did it. Today, Lagos is exceptionally rich and functional”.
He promised to create prosperity, jobs and create a better economy for the country.
He advised voters never to trust the opposition party the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) because “they mismanaged the nation’s economy and privatized assets of the country to themselves and their cronies.
He said “don’t mind them with their lies of 16 years, they cannot even provide electricity to roast corn. They kept lying, electricity that is generated from our hydro, they don’t know how to do it.”
Earlier, governor Ben Ayade had assured that Cross River State will secure victory for Asiwaju and all APC candidates.
