BY BEN NWACHUKWU, ABUJA
Abuja, the nation’s capital was taken over by the supporters of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu from all parts of the country who trooped out in their thousands to make a formal presentation of their choice candidate for the 2023 Presidential election.
The event which took place at the prestgeous International Conference Centre pulled the who is who in the country’s politics with former governor and serving Senators, House of Representatives Speaker and members, states houses of assembly speakers and members, commissioners, market women and captains of industries in attendance.
Speaking, Senator representing Borno Central Senatorial district Kashimh Shettima Monday declared former governor of Lagos State and Leader of the All Progressives Congress Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the most qualified aspirant for the post of Nigeria’s President
He stated that the logical sequence of events in the country’s politics demanded that the South must be allowed to produce the next president of the country in the forthcoming general election Shetima the immediate past governor of Borno State made this declaration while delivering a keynote address at the Support Group Conference for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s presidential project in Abuja.
The former governor insisted that the APC national leader Tinubu is better qualified than any other aspirants jostling for the nation’s number one job, adding that the highly reverred national leader of the party deserved to be given the right of first refusal.
Shetima recalled the loyalty sacrifice and contributions of Asiwaju to the presidential ambition of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015, stressing that the former Lagos governor stood solidly behind the candidacy of Buhari even when the loyalty of other associates of his were in doubt.
“In 2015, some aspirants with very huge war chest were itching to cling the ticket of the APC, like the rock of gibraltar Asiwaju and his progressive team stood solidly behind the candidacy of President Muhamadu Buhari.
“My simple question distinguished ladies and gentlemen is where were the new members of what I call: ‘The
Buhari’s Church of Later Days Saint?where were they? We knew where their political loyalty lied in that particular convention when President Muhamadu emerged as the presidential candidate of the APC. Where were they?
“Some people say everything goes in politics not everything goes in politics. We shall have minimal thresholds below which won’t operate and the irreducible minimum is that after eight years of Presidency in the North, the logic, common sense, equity, justice and fairness demand that power should move to the Southern part of the country and who is better qualified? Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu should be given the choice of first refusal. More than any other person, he has sacrificed more for this democracy for the APC
“He is a tested accomplished and large-hearted leader who has invested his resources in building an extensive network of political mentees who have risen to the pick of their careers. He’s a leader of leaders. A mentor who has mentored some of the best hands in this country”
