The presidential candidate, who lauded the mammoth crowd that received him, said that he was in the race for the betterment of the country.
He pledged that he would replicate his achievements as Lagos State governor at the national level if elected as the country’s president.
According to him, Nigeria should not be put in the hands of any individual that cannot be trusted.
Tinubu, who described Ondo State as a state of the progressives, promised to make the proposed Ondo Sea Port a reality, if elected.
While also promising to invest massively in infrastructure projects and make regular electricity supply a reality, Tinubu also pledged to prioritise education “so that indigent students could access student loan scheme”.

Omisore stressed the need for continuity, both at the state and the national level, explaining that the APC-led government had done great work for the survival of the country.
He gave assurance that if elected, Tinubu would bring to the federation more achievements than he recorded in Lagos State as a governor.
Mr Ade Adetimehin, the state Chairman of APC, said that Ondo State was 100-per-cent a progressive state
Adetimehin said that the party would deliver the state for Tinubu, stressing that “no other state in the country, not even Lagos, will beat Ondo State in terms of percentage of votes for Tinubu in the forthcoming election.’’
