2023: Tinubu Believes in Equity, Fairness and Justice, He's Most Capable - Sen. Akanbi

L-R Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Senator Adesoji Akanbi

By Paul Ukpabio

Deputy National Chairman, South-West Agenda 2023 (SWAGA ‘23), Senator Adesoji Akanbi, has congratulated National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on his safe return to the country.

Senator Adesoji Akanbi who is also the Okanlomo of Ibadan, took time off to have a brief intrrview with us, where he spoke about the candidacy of the APC leader in the forthcoming Presidential election in the country.

After many weeks outside the country on medical reasons, Asiwaju is back in the country, what can you say about that?

Asiwaju is like an open book, all well monitored. If he talks, it is news. So there is little or nothing that is hidden about his recent trip abroad. The good thing is that he is back, looking good and healthy. So we are glad that he is back very healthy and sound. That's the good news.

Who is Tinubu to you, what do you know about him that others do not know?

Asiwaju is a pathfinder and a problem solver, he plans ahead. He doesnt dwell on rhe mistakes of the past. He learns from the past and moves on. At the moment, he is the man that is the unifying force for the country. And the good aspect is that, we could see his records since he was the governor of Lagos and after he left, till today. Look at his team then and look at where most of them are today. He is result oriented and I can safely tell you that he believes in equity, fairness and justice. I can go on and on to say more. And he is a very consistent person.

What do you think of Tinubu's political aspiration to be the next president?

As you are aware, he has not spoken on this matter, the initiative belongs to SWAGA 23. With SWAGA' 23, we believe intelligently that SWAGA started for tge good of the country, and it is more like a rallying point, which started from the regions and we believe that so far so good, like our leaders in the north too want equity and justice by conceding to give the presidential ticket to a Southerner. That is why the Southwest wants to put our best candidate out there. Let's assume that eventually all concede to a Sounthern ticket, this move of ours will galvanize APC to win the forthcoming election. Asiwaju is in a fantastic person in a fantastic position, his friends are all over. Tinubu believes in equity, fairness and Justice, He's Most Capable.

What makes you think that Nigerians will vote for APC in the next presidential election?

Yes, you see in the next presidential election, it is not going to be about the party, it is going to be about the individual.
Thats is why we are resolute on Tinubu, he has friends across the board, across the country, truly he is a Nigerian and that goes beyond party lines. So it won't be about the APC or any party, it will be about the individual.

Tinubu says he is back to develop democracy and economy, do you hsve a believe that he can do these?

We can look back at the IGR of lagos state when he was the governor of the state, and look at where the IGR of that state is today. You can see the template of Lagos then and the progressive template till date. And we can also note of Lagos, to be the fastest growing economy so far in the whole of Africa. Lagos has at least done well in the last 20 years and that is a fact. Lastly, I can say that Tinubu has been tested and we in SWAGA' 23 and most Nigerians, will rather trust such a person for a presidential candidate come 2023.
