“Why Tinubu Deserves To Be Nigeria President” – Keyamo
The spokesperson of the All progressive congress (APC) presidential campaign council, Mr. Festus Keyamo, said Bola Ahmed Tinubu has paid enough dues to mount the seat of the leadership of Nigeria after the 2023 poll.?
?Speaking during the unveiling ceremony of the progressives forum (TPF) held in Abuja, he argued that Tinubu earns to be compensated due to the yeoman role he played in resisting the onslaught by the President Olusegun Obasanjo-led peoples democratic party (PDP) administration aimed at turning Nigeria into a one-party state.?
“Without Asiwaju, we would not have multiparty democracy today. He was one man standing. He has achieved it. If you were wise enough in 2003 that was the turning point in Nigeria’s democracy,” Keyamo said.?
“That was when the PDP wiped out all the states in the South, they fought everybody off but Asiwaju struggled back and kept Lagos.?
“It takes a strong character like Asiwaju to withstand the onslaught of the PDP at the time. He stretched his hands over the Niger from Lagos for us to have the APC today. Contrarily, Nigeria would have been a one-party state by now. It would have been only PDP today and no other party. That is the truth.?
“It takes his strength of character to achieve this. All the other candidates including the one who is jumping from one party to the other – all of them, I mean the major ones especially that one who ran away from PDP, got another platform facilitated by Tinubu, he then ran back to the PDP only for the party to chase him away, he came to the APC, they dealt with him and is back to PDP again. But Asiwaju has kept his principles, integrity, focus, and consistency. It is now his turn – Emi Lokan.”?
