The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has credited  prayers for helping him clinch the APC presidential ticket when he suspected he was ganged up against.

Tinubu, while on a visit to Rilwan Akiolu, the Oba of Lagos, said he fell back on prayers and had to pour out his mind to God when he suspected some people within the party had ganged up against him.

He said: “There is no Lagos indigene that has had the opportunity to become President of Nigeria, despite the contribution of the State to the national stability and progress.” he was quoted as saying in a statement by Mr Gboyega Akosile, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State.

“The highest position attained by any Lagosian in national leadership is the position of Chief Judge of the Federation. I took up the fight to break this jinx.”

“The battle to secure the APC ticket was hard. When I was almost fed up, I resorted to prayers. I also poured out my mind when I felt there was a gang up against my person.”

“Thank God that I have brought home the presidential ticket. I took up the fight to break this jinx. The battle to secure the APC ticket was hard. When I was almost fed up, I resorted to prayers. I also poured out my mind when I felt there was a gang up against my person. Thank God that I have brought home the presidential ticket. The task ahead is to galvanise our people to get their voter cards and vote to enable us to realise this ambition. Getting our people to vote is the most important task before all of us. We need to take this message to our people across communities and sensitise them on the need to vote in the general elections.”
