The Emir of Dutse in Jigawa State, HRH Alhaji Nuhu Mohammed Sanusi, has lauded the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asíwájú Bola Ahmed Tinubu during a visit to his palace.

According to him, Bola Tinubu has the capacity to rule the country as he has demonstrated this while he was Governor of Lagos state.

Emir Sanusi claimed Tinubu helped to bring the North and South together to form a strong political party.

A statement signed by Tinubu Media Office, Tunde Rahman, the monarch said,

"I'm a keen follower of you and your political activities. You are one person I believe have the capacity and competence to rule the country.

"Nigeria had been polarised before. You were able to bring the North and South together under this administration.

"I attended your inauguration as the Jagaba of Borgu by the late Emir of Borgu. He was my friend. He was constantly talking about you and your good deeds.

"You also went to America to study just like me. And like you, I also did several menial jobs to survive.

"I'm also an Accountant like you. I have also read some of your books particularly like the one titled 'Financialism'.

The only thing I lack, unlike you, is the will to play politics."

Bola Tinubu also expressed his gratitude to the emir as he promised to work hard to solve the problems in the state if he wins.

"I will not sell or share the nation's patrimony like a piece of cake. He has come to serve and he will serve the country."
