2023 Presidency: Electing Tinubu As President For Nigeria’s Good, Says Sanwo-Olu
The Governor stated this during the formal inauguration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu (ABAT) movement’s working committee in Ikeja.
Sanwo-Olu said Tinubu’s qualification rested on his demonstrated capacity in deploying a mix of genius and statecraft to nurture a city on the brink of a flourishing economy.
Tinubu’s practicable ideas in governance makes him the most qualified successor and saleable choice for the job. Our country is the most populous black nation in the world and the responsibility that comes with that is enormous. No doubt that the destiny of the entire black race is tied to the greatness of Nigeria.
If our country must be great, we have the responsibility to choose the leadership that will bring about true transformation across every facet of our national life.
The Lagos governor added;
Who is that rallying figure that should lead us in this journey? The answer is deeply connected to our mission and purpose here today. That person must be a detribalised Nigerian and a bridge-builder, who has been tested and trusted.
He further stressed that the person must be a thinker, who must sustain the legacy “our current president is leaving behind.”
That person is the reason we are inaugurating this movement for the actualisation of his presidential ambition. That person is our great leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
ABAT movement was conceived and set up by members of the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC) in Lagos to actualise Mr Tinubu’s presidential ambition.
The event was to raise foot soldiers, team leaders and cheerleaders, who would pursue the movement’s objectives and cascade down its messages to every voter at the ward level, with commitment and passion.
The governor charged all selected for leadership roles in the movement to reflect Tinubu’s political ideals of openness and tolerance in their engagement and mobilisation.
