“At this time Nigeria only needs Asiwaju Tinubu. In his time as Lagos state governor, staff salaries, developmental projects, philanthropic activities never stopped even when the then president refused to give allocation to the state.
“Think about it, if he did that in Lagos and we never heard Lagos State going into recession at the time, what if he had the whole country struggling to manage her abundant resources? Let us ponder upon that.
“That is the man of caliber and pedigree, a charismatic and selfless leader we pray to canvass support for to pilot the affairs of this nation, and take this nation to the promise land,” he said.
He commended the people of Akwa Ibom for coming together as a formidable group to support Tinubu ambition saying the movement will serve as the driving force for the actualization of the presidency of Ahmed Tinubu come 2023.
