The Coalition for Democracy in Nigeria (CODIN) has stated and reassured Nigerians that the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will run and lift Nigeria up the ladder of prosperity when he assumes office in 2023.
The group, in a statement issued on Friday by its President and Convener, Comrade Mashood Erubami, posited that Tinubu’s victory in the February 25 election is not doubtable and no development in the political spaces can disturb him from coasting home with the winning votes.

“He is not troubled by an inhibiting ailment that could debar him from functioning. He has travelled all over the country and abroad more than any of his colleagues in the presidential race to meet foreign Missions and Democrats, explaining the policies and programmes of his government, marketing his party on its renewed hope and presenting himself as most capable among them.
“Tinubu is healthy. There is nothing wrong with him except the normal signs in the criminal imaginations of the crooked oppositions which reflect in the lives of contemporaries of his age and nobody is immune from that when they grow up to such ages.
“He is strong and still energetic as he speaks and dances to music made for the Youths ‘Buga music is one of them,” the group said.
The statement further enunciated that Tinubu has been seriously engaging in various town hall meetings with business entrepreneurs, global and locally respected political leaders and followers exposing the problems of business enterprises across the Nigerian divide, assuring them how he will use very strong fiscal and monetary interventions to solve them without being accused of any religious bigotry and ethnic affiliation.

“Through accomplishable expectations to turn Tinubu into a courageous, very strong and determined President leading from the front, to fashion a strong government that would bring strong policies, stronger institutions, and economic stability for the lifted of Nigerians from poverty, degradation to prosperity.
“Promote a renewed launching of the lost principles in June 12, with his victory on February 25, 2023 and bring back “hHope 93” as “Renewed Hope 2023” bringing about unity among Nigerians without tribal sentiments and religious bigotry.
“Turn all Nigerians and Institutions into stakeholders of sustainable development
