A former Minister of Works, Adeseye Ogunlewe, has opined that Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has achieved more than the late Youba sage, Obafemi Awolowo and MKO Abiola, acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.

Ogunlewe anchored his claim on the number of persons Tinubu has been able to promote from nothing to be governors, ministers and even Vice-President.

He maintained that the former Lagos State governor would make a better President if given the opportunity.

Speaking with Daily Independent, Ogunlewe said: “Tinubu is the most prominent Yoruba person that has paid his dues and is knowledgeable about the politics of Nigeria. I am confident he can lead Nigeria well if he becomes president.

“How can I say that the north will deny Tinubu and he will end up like MKO Abiola? All these people are enemies of progress… Hasn’t he (Tinubu) done more than MKO Abiola? Hasn’t he done more than Awolowo?

”Maybe not in terms of performance but he has more in terms of skills, wisdom. Look at the way he has been able to cover all parts of Nigeria.

“Look at the number of people he has been able to promote from nothing to be governors, ministers and even Vice-President.

“Believe it or not, whether you like him or you don’t like him, you must give him credit. All those saying negative things are not knowledgeable about Nigerian politics. If you are knowledgeable about Nigerian politics, you should know that you cannot remove the man’s achievements from him.”

    You cannot rule out the importance of Late MKO,Abiola,the acclaimed winner of June 12,1993 presidential election likewise the impacts of Late Obafemi Awolowo in Nigeria politics.These people mentioned have contributes tremendously to the Nigeria politics and their impact cannot be rule out in the history of Nigeria.Those who says tinubu has done greatly and better than this people did not know what they are talking about and they are enemy of progress as far as Nigeria politics is concerned.We need fresh blood,we need people who can bring out the lost glory of this country.
    Tinubu can be good in some areas but tinubu is not the best candidates to rule this country as President.
