The candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has promised to ‘recharge’ Lake Chad if elected president in the 2023 general elections.
Tinubu, who made this promise on Tuesday at the flag off of the Kolmani Integrated Development Project in Bauchi State, said the project has created new opportunities for the country.
He said beyond Lake Chad, he will also ensure the construction of the Mambilla Hydro project to boost power supply in the country.
While praising President Muhammadu Buhari for remaining focused, he pledged to continue from where the president stops in 2023.
He said: “Mr President you kept faith, you stayed focused. Say what enemies may, you remain who you are. During the primaries, you said it has to be free and fair, a level playing field for everybody not caring where we face, north, east or west.
“That election and congress produced me. I never thought that I would have the opportunity to even stand before you today for a discovery of great magnitude, an impactful discovery that will strengthen the dynamics of our country and make you a blessed inheritor of good history. You will be.
“Congratulations for staying focused and for encouraging many of us. Your various regrets each time we discuss the lack of food and the challenges of terrorism, we talk about Lake Chad.
“Let me assure you that if I am elected president, I will recharge Lake Chad. You often talk about Mambilla and electricity. What a problem we have! Even though we are not within the parameters of arithmetic, you know a circle is a circle and once drawn, you have to break it in different ways”.
