A former National Chairman of Mega Progressives People’s Party (MPPP), Hon Aderemi Banjo, on Sunday described presidential hopeful, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as ‘’a man of noble character, true Nigerian and promoter of youth development’’.


‘’Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the perfect man for the presidential job’’.

Banjo reacted in Lagos to the innuendoes and the allegations that have been made in the press, Tinubu’s leading role in the fall of Dr Goodluck Jonathan in 2015 and the need to attract the kind of confidence that is vital for investment and growth.

He called on prominent APC leaders in the country to reflect on the agreement committing leading members of the party to accepting Tinubu as the flag bearer in 2023

In a statement Sunday, Banjo advised notable leaders to focus on the things that promote unity in the nation and the ruling party rather than on issues that breed feuds and division.

The party leader noted that Buhari would not have been APC presidential flag bearer in 2014 and winner of the 2015 and 2019 elections.

Titled “Asiwaju: The political encyclopaedia against all intrigues”, Banjo attributed Buhari’s political victory in 2015 and 2019 to Tinubu.

He urged the ruling party to assess APC presidential aspirants based on the contributions to their states.

He also stated that Tinubu has the potential to build a strong economy and provide the nucleus of development for the country.

Particularly, he credited the detribalised nature of Lagos State, religious friendly environment, proactive management of emergency and infrastructural development to Tinubu.

‘Aspirants not having experience in the management of Lagos State are not fit to be president of Nigeria’’.

Banjo who is currently a chieftain of the ruling party recollected Tinubu’s appointment of Yemi Osinbajo, Rauf Aregbesola and Ben Akabueze as commissioners.

He also recollected the Patriotic Electoral Alliance of Nigeria , the 33 political parties endorsed the candidacy of Dr Goodluck Jonathan and the role of the South-West governors.

The APC stalwart urged Buhari to remember Jonathan’s blunder and the failure of the PDP in 2015.

He appealed to delegates to vote Tinubu as the APC presidential candidate.

The statement also emphasised APC’s victory in 2023, unity, scheme of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and development of the country.
