A former Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan, says Sen. Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, holds the best credentials to lead Nigeria.
Adesiyan made this known on Monday in Ibadan, while featuring on the Guest Forum of the Oyo State Correspondents’ Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ).
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the former Minister is also a member of the APC President Campaign Council (PCC).
He described Tinubu as the best among the presidential candidates, saying that his emergence as president would help the country.
Adesiyan said, “a replication of Tinubu’s administrative acumen as Governor of Lagos would ensure a nation devoid of ethnic and religious bigotry.”
He said that Tinubu, as a former Senator and Chieftain of the defunct National Democratic Coalition (NADECO), has all it takes to bequeathe the much desired nation.
“Tinubu is the most criticised, equipped, knowledgeable and the bridge between the rich and poor. He is a unifier. He is a personality with proven ethnic and religious tolerance,” the former minister said.
Adesiyan, who frowned at the introduction of new naira notes few weeks to the general elections, said that the policy had inflicted hardship on the people.
He commended Tinubu for speaking out on the policy, assuring Nigerians that the APC Presidential candidate would correct all abnormalities when elected.
Adesiyan, while urging Nigerians to vote enmasse for Tinubu, said that he would win the Feb. 25 election and Nigeria would remain the same.
He said politics in Nigeria was no more based on ideology, but personal interest, adding that such accounted for the series of political defections.
