The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Thursday night urged Nigerians to avoid buying into the narrative that the country is a failed state.
This is even as the APC presidential flagbearer affirmed that he felt better after enjoying his 11 days vacation in London, United Kingdom.
Tinubu made the statement in Abuja shortly after he alighted from his private jet amid wild jubilation from his supporters and some members of his Presidential Campaign Council.
The former Lagos State governor was warmly received by his running mate, Kashim Shettima; Director General of the PCC, Simon Lalong; his deputy, Adams Oshiomhole, and other party chieftains.
Addressing journalists amid shouts of ‘Jagaban’ and ‘City Boy’, Tinubu expressed his readiness for the political campaign, saying he felt better.

He said, “The trip was very good. I enjoyed my break. And I’m happy to be back to my fatherland.
“And Nigerians should expect a very intelligent ability to think and perform. Nigerians should expect that the help they needed is here, the hope that is almost jittering is back and back actively.
“And we hold every effort to the country of patriotism, dedication, capacity and ability to do the job. Not negative thinking, not the fact that Nigeria has failed; this country is the greatest.
“If it is to rebuild, we are builders; if it is construction, we are constructors. If it is assurance, we give Nigerians the assurance that we definitely make a better country out of it all.”
