A former member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Dipo Olounrinu, has urged Nigerians to beg the National leader of the All Progressives Congress APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to contest the 2023 presidential election.
He said the APC National Leader is not only competent for the presidency of the country, but he also enjoys the support of the majority of Nigerians to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
“The APC leader has not only made himself, he has made countless number of people and impacted on lives of millions of people,” he stated.
“I don’t see any reason he shouldn’t be given that chance.
“What is good for the geese is also good for the gander.
“You cannot rule out what is good.
“What is good is just good.
“This (Tinubu) is somebody that has pedigree and antecedents.
“So, why the whole argument of people criticising him whether he wants to run or he doesn’t want to run, even if he doesn’t want, we should beg him to, that’s just the truth.
“You need experienced people, people that have experience of life generally, they have seen the other side of life, they have seen the best part of life.
“There should be a yardstick in looking at things.”
According to him, Tinubu had demonstrated uncommon political sagacity and dexterity in driving the APC to become the ruling party.
Olounrinu recalled how Tinubu was in the opposition for years as a Governor of Lagos State where he weathered the storm and sustained his grip on Lagos politics.
He said no politician could be more qualified than Tinubu to steer the ship of the nation to greatness.
