He said he poured out his mind when he felt there was a gang up against him when he was after the presidential candidacy of his party, APC.
Tinubu made the headlines some days to the primaries when he boasted that he brought President Muhammadu Buhari out of political retirement and made him President.
Speaking when he paid a visit to the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, at his palace on Sunday, the Presidential Candidate said he was almost fed up at a point in time.
“There is no Lagos indigene that has had the opportunity to become President of Nigeria, despite the contribution of the State to the national stability and progress. The highest position attained by any Lagosian in national leadership is the position of Chief Judge of the Federation.

“I took up the fight to break this jinx. The battle to secure the APC ticket was hard. When I was almost fed up, I resorted to prayers. I also poured out my mind when I felt there was a gang up against my person. Thank God that I have brought home the presidential ticket.
“The task ahead is to galvanise our people to get their voter cards and vote to enable us realise this ambition. Getting our people to vote is the most important task before all of us.
“We need to take this message to our people across communities and sensitise them on the need to vote in the general elections,” he said.
Tinubu defeated 13 other contenders to emerge the flag bearer of the party at the Special National Convention of the party, held in Abuja.
He won with a total of 1,271 votes.
