The candidacy of Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu received a boost over the weekend. Stakeholders across political divide launched a support group for the “aspiration” of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to succeed President Buhari.
Former Minister of State for Works, Senator Dayo Adeyeye, who chairs South West Agenda for Tinubu stated that the nation was presently at a crossroads and that it needed a person like Tinubu to give it the needed direction so as to stimulate growth and stability.
Adeyeye stated that the North was already mobilizing massive support for Tinubu, adding that he is the kind of person Nigeria needs for leadership now.
It is worthy of note that Tinubu has not yet declared intent to vie for the president, but “ he must be dragged into it.” Adeyeye insist.
Adeyeye also claimed that the truncated 1993 presidential polls, reportedly won by MKO Abiola would have brought total unity in the country.
“I want to assure you that Tinubu believes in equality and social justice. Those are the things you need to consider. By the principles of our party, the presidency will rotate to the south, everybody is qualified to contest in the south. And anything you don’t work for or fight for, you can’t value it.
“Let nobody deceive you that it should go to a particular zone. Everybody should fight for it. And when the aspirants are brought out and Nigerians are to assess then I can guarantee that Tinubu will tower above them.”
A former member of the House of Representatives, Honourable Eseme Eyiboh, is the converner of the Tinubu Support Group. He maintained that, “ the country must move forward and we want to give back our nation to the people. At this moment, Nigeria needs a leader who is able to mobilize the abundant resources and talents.
“The national questions have thrown up a whole lot of issues especially insecurities which must be addressed so as to move the nation forward on the path of sustainable growth and stability.
He submitted that Tinubu is the answer to all the begging questions.
