The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC)Bola Ahmed Tinubu yesterday in Lagos declared that with what he described as Commonsense Revolution, the time for change in the country has come.
Calling on Nigerians to troop out en masse on Saturday to cast their votes for the APC Presidential Candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, in order to effect the change they so much desire, Tinubu said: “We fight no one and hate no one. We are all Nigerians. However, some things we do to each other must stop. We are better than how we seem and how the nation now performs.
“We must commit ourselves to our better nature that we may enjoy a better nation. This does not require any special genius. All it requires is the common sense to recognise we share a common fate and destiny. In your hands and actions lies so much of my future and in my hands, lies much of yours.”
“Now is the appointed time to rise up and work together to build a new country. A new day for a better Nigeria is possible.”
Tinubu stated this while speaking at the 7th Bola Tinubu Colloquium, explaining what he meant by Commonsense Revolution.
Tinubu said: “The time for a common sense revolution has come to Nigeria.
In calling for a commonsense revolution, I do not advocate violence. I abhor it. That is not the type of revolution we seek,
This revolution is strong but peaceful. It is a revolution to use our votes to throw out ineffective leaders. It is a demand for a true electoral democracy and the responsive leadership associated with it. It is a revolution to rescue us from violence, injustice and poverty.
