OGUNLEWE: How can I say that about Tinubu? He is the most prominent Yoruba person that has paid his dues and is knowledgeable about the politics of Nigeria. I am confident he can lead Nigeria well if he becomes President. All these people are enemies of progress. How can I say that the North will deny Tinubu and he will end up like MKO Abiola. Hasn’t he done more than MKO Abiola? Hasn’t he done more than Awolowo? Maybe not in terms of performance but he has more in terms of skills, wisdom. Look at the way he has been able to cover all parts of Nigeria. Look at the number of people he has been able to promote from nothing to be governors, ministers and even Vice-President:.
Believe it or not, whether you like him or you don’t like him, you must give him credit for all he has achieved. In Nigeria today, he is a case study. All those saying negative things are not knowledgeable about politics. If you are knowledgeable about politics, you should know that you cannot remove the man’s achievements from him. You have people who endowed in political skills today and he is one of them. Whether you like him or you don’t like him; that is what God has made him. Let us see the value he can add to governance in Nigeria instead of being negative at all times. You that is negative-minded about Tinubu, what have you achieved politically? All we are interested in degrading people to make sure they are brought down. But look at how many hurdles this man has crossed and he has succeeded and out skill everybody. That is my own position. Anybody that is saying anything else is just unreasonable. Let us accept the superiority of the man.
