Elder statesman Tanko Yakassai has stated that Bola Ahmed Tinubu will be a better president than Muhammadu Buhari if given the opportunity.
Speaking in an interview in Kano, Yakassai, who was a liaison officer to former President Shehu Shagari, pointed out that Tinubu’s effort in transforming Lagos State when he was governor were indications that he is more competent than Buhari.
He noted that Bola Tinubu was a better planner, adding that without a plan one cannot perform.
Tanko Yakassai said: “If you are talking of making a better president, to be honest with you, I think if Tinubu can get the APC ticket and is elected, he will perform better than Buhari. I do not doubt in my mind.
“Go to Lagos and see what Tinubu did, when I went for an occasion, I took my time on the day of my arrival to go and have a look at Lekki.
“In my opinion, Tinubu can make a better president than Buhari.
“What makes a better political leader in government is the plan. If you have a plan, you can do it; without a plan, you cannot perform,” Daily Times reports.
Naija News reports that various groups and individuals are clamouring for the presidency to come to the south in 2023.
Former Secretary-General of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, has been a strong advocate for a Tinubu presidency.
