A former Minister of Works, Adeseye Ogunlewe, has said that National Leader of All Progressive Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has achieved more in South-West than late Obafemi Awolowo, MKO Abiola and others.
In an interview with Daily Independent, Adeseye Ogunlewe said Asiwaju Tinubu has achieved more greatness and that the north will allow him to rule Nigeria come 2023.
“How can I say that the north will deny Asiwaju Tinubu and he will end up like MKO Abiola? All these people are enemies of progress… Hasn’t he (Asiwaju Tinubu) 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.”
The former senator who represented Lagos East from between 1999 and 2003, said Tinubu will lead well if allowed the highest office in Nigeria.
“He (Asiwaju Tinubu) 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,” he said.
“Believe it or not, whether you like him or you don’t like him, you must give him credit. All those saying negative things are not knowledgeable about Nigerian politics. If you are knowledgeable about Nigerian politics, you should know that you cannot remove the man’s achievements from him,” he concluded.
Ogunlewe also spoke about Babachir Lawal, former secretary to the Federal government, said Tinubu has what it takes to rule Nigeria.
