The pan-northern socio-political organisation under the aegis of Arewa New Agenda, on Friday, said the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, towered heads and shoulders above all other candidates.
ANA challenged other presidential candidates to showcase the achievements and disciples they have mentored that would make Nigerians vote for them in the February 25 election.
The convener of ANA, Senator Ahmad Abubakar MoAllahyidi, during an interactive session with journalists in Abuja, said Tinubu improved the internally generated revenue of Lagos tremendously.
He also listed some of the personalities mentored by the former governor of Lagos State and some of his core achievements while in office as governor.
MoAllahyidi said in human capital development, Tinubu remained a mentor to many people in Nigeria irrespective of their tribe, ethnicity or religion.
Part of the statement read, “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu took on the gory sight of Lagos environment on assumption of office that was occasion by pollution from different sectors at that time; he set up the 40-year development plan which has been followed diligently over the years culminating in the ongoing transformation of Lagos.
