Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Thursday declared that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is the most qualified Nigerian to emerge president of the country in 2023.
Governor Sanwo-Olu made the submission during the formal inauguration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu (ABAT) Movement’s Working Committees in Ikeja GRA.
According to the Governor, Tinubu has over the years, demonstrated the ability to effectively manage human and material resources for visible progress.
He added that Tinubu has demonstrated what he can do during his time as the Lagos State Governor and can also transform Nigeria as the President.
Naija News understands ABAT was conceived and set up by members of the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC) in Lagos for the actualization of Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition.
The Governor said: “Our country is the most populous black nation in the world and the responsibility that comes with that is enormous. No doubt that the destiny of the entire black race is tied to the greatness of Nigeria. If our country must be great, we have the responsibility to choose the leadership that will bring about true transformation across every facet of our national life. Who is that rallying figure that should lead us in this journey?
“The answer is deeply connected to our mission and purpose here today. That person must be a detribalized Nigerian and a bridge-builder, who has been tested and trusted. A thinker who must sustain the legacy our current president is leaving behind. That person is the reason we are inaugurating this Movement for the actualization of his presidential ambition. That person is our great leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“Let us tell the naysayers and those who are still in doubt that we are ready to work for the realization of this ambition, because Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the Number one salable candidate for the president. We will preach this gospel with diligence, dedication and high sense of commitment. Asiwaju is an unfolding success story our nation deserves at this time.”
