The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, on Thursday, promised entrepreneurs that, if elected, he would reposition Nigeria for greater opportunities and development of its citizens.

He also promised to work towards enhancing the security situation in the country to allow entrepreneurs to have an enabling environment to do their businesses.

Tinubu made the pledge at a business luncheon with business owners in Lagos.

The luncheon, entitled ‘Business forward’, was held at the Wings located on Victoria Island.

On the issue of fuel subsidy, he said, if elected, he would take bold decisions that would turn the nation’s economy around.

He said, “Nigeria will not continue to subsidise fuel consumption in neighbouring countries.

“How can we be subsidising fuel consumption of Cameroon, Niger, Benin Republic? No matter how long you protest, we are going to remove the fuel subsidy.

First, the primary responsibility of government is to protect the lives, property and prosperity of its citizens.”

He said, as governor of Lagos State, fixing the difficult security situation at that time was his first priority.

“Only after we secured the state and changed its reputation for the better, could we embark on the economic reforms that have ultimately produced the vibrant and active megacity of today.

“I am committed to securing Nigerians from violence and the fear of such violence, terror, kidnapping and banditry have no place in the society I envision,” he said.
