The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has promised to pay the West African Examination Council (WAEC) fees of every Nigerian child if elected president in 2023.
Tinubu, who recently declared his presidential ambition, stated this while addressing some APC women groups in a trending video shared on social media
He said, “Your children’s West African Examination Council Exams fee is paid by us, so that no matter how poor, they are not left behind”.
“The theme for my campaign is breaking shackles. We break the shackles of poverty, we break the shackles of ignorance.
The APC leader added that Nigeria needs peace and stability in order to solve the problem of banditry in the country.
He said, “We need stability in the country, we need peace. Peace and end to banditry is extremely important because women are the first victim, the most vulnerable victims of banditry, violence and instability.
“Without peace and stability, we can’t build the nation as rapidly as we want. APC is progressing and that is where you should stay, that is where you should mobilize from”
