National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has promised to pay the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WAEC) fee for every Nigerian child if he is elected President.
Mouthpiece NGR understands that Tinubu made this statement in a video-monitored on Wednesday, January 19.
The former Lagos Governor had declared his intention to run for the 2023 presidency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Addressing a group of women in the video, the APC stalwart said: “Your children’s West African examination fees will be paid by us, so that no one, no matter how poor, will be left behind.
“The symbol of our party is a broom. The symbol of my cap is breaking shackles. You break the shackles of ignorance, poverty, and many things.
“We need stability in the country. We need peace and the stoppage of banditry is extremely important because women are the vulnerable victims of banditry, violence and instability. Without peace and stability, we cannot build a nation as rapidly.
