Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, APC Presidential Candidate, announces the plan to develop West African gas for the European market during a campaign stop in Benin City, Edo State. Tinubu spoke to political leaders, professionals, and social groups at a town hall meeting.
At a town hall meeting in Benin City, Edo State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), announced his plans for West African gas. He stated, “We’re working on West African gas that will sell in Europe.” Tinubu added that if previous leaders had put more thought into it, the country would have been generating more revenue already.
“Nigeria would have profited from gas sales and Edo’s development would have been different.”
“I promise to fix these issues and make Edo a hub for economic activity.”
Tinubu stated his support for building a museum for the artifacts and demanded their return from those who have kept them.
“I ask for your prayers. I fought and suffered for democracy. I made sacrifices.”
“At the start of my 8 years, succession was a natural thought. I informed President Buhari of my intentions and I am not retreating.”
“I am running for the Villa. When I win, I plan to take over the residence. So I seek your blessings, as they are important to me.”
Oba Ewuare II thanked Tinubu for his planned support for the museum and praised the Federal government for taking over its construction through the NCMM. He also acknowledged the State government’s support for the project.
At the town hall, Tinubu pledged to fully deregulate the oil sector to allow market forces to set oil product prices based on location. He stated his administration would fix all refineries and not let parties like the PDP regain power.
He outlined his plans and requested support for his party in all elections starting on February 25th.
At the palace of Oba Ewuare II, in the presence of traditional rulers from Edo Central and Edo North, Tinubu praised President Buhari for extending the deadline for the new naira note changeover. He cited the extension request as the reason for his delay at the meeting.
Tinubu also pledged to fight for the return of artifacts from the city and, if elected, to tap into Edo’s rich gas resources for export to Europe as part of his plans.
