Obi, Atiku Can’t Match My Track Records – Tinubu Boasts



Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress’s nominee for president, has claimed that none of his rivals can equal his record of accomplishment.

The former governor of Lagos State and national chairman of the APC added that he established a “legacy of technocratic governance that was instituted by attracting expertise from the private sector” while serving as governor. By adequately supporting the police force, insecurity and crime were reduced.

Tinubu has continually boasted of his achievements during his tenure as governor of the economic capital of Nigeria.

Tinubu stated in an editorial that appeared in The Economist, “For this vital task, I have a track record my competitors cannot match. During my tenure as governor of Lagos between 1999 and 2007, the state went from being a difficult, often dangerous place to a development success story.

“We quadrupled state tax revenues, putting those funds directly to work through investing in public services and infrastructure. A legacy of technocratic governance was instituted by enlisting talent from the private sector.

“Insecurity and crime were tackled through better funding the police force. Investment and the business sector thrived. Today, Lagos would rank among Africa’s ten largest economies and does not rely on oil revenues to fund its budget”.
