Former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, Thursday said Nigeria has what it takes to become the renaissance beacon for African development if its leadership is dedicated to the cause of lifting the country out of the precarious situation it now finds itself.
Tinubu made this assertion while receiving a President’s award by the National Conference of Black Mayors of America in his office.
He thanked the Black Mayors of America for the recognition awarded him, noting: “African-Americans and Nigerians are the same in their crusade to achieve freedom and liberty. We must work together to elevate our people. We share a common aspiration in the struggle to eradicate poverty and give hope to our people.”
