National leader of the All Progressive Congress ( APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has said the collective efforts of Nigerians was responsible for the 2015 electoral victory of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Without their support, Tinubu said the change would have been difficult to achieve.
Tinubu who bagged Sun newspapers Man of the Year Award held in Lagos on Saturday said the people provided the bulwark for the unprecedented political change.
“What was accomplished in 2015 was not a singular effort.
It was done through the collective love and labour of millions of Nigerians. A handful of them were well known.
“Most of them are hardworking anonymous people who together constitute the backbone and great strength of this nation. “God in His wisdom placed me in the position to recognise the change that was needed and to help effectuate that change. I thank God for giving me this chance and for allowing me to be born a black man and a Nigerian,” Tinubu stated.
