Bola Ahmed Tinubu Bola Ahmed Tinubu

Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan, a former Minister of Police Affairs opined that Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has better credentials than other presidential candidates such as Alhaji Abubakar Atiku of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Mr. Peter Obi of Labour Party.

Jelili made this known on Monday, February 6 while featuring at a guest platform programme organised by the Correspondents’ chapel of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Oyo state council in Ibadan.

The former Minister is also the Chairman of the Screening Committee of the 2022 All Progressives Congress (APC) Primary election in Oyo State.

Adesiyan who is a member of the Campaign Committee for Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu Presidential election, said that Tinubu is more qualified to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari than Atiku, Obi and other presidential candidates.

He spoke further by saying that Tinubu is the only person that can bridge the gap between the poor and the rich.

He added that Tinubu will correct the present problems confronting the country

Adesiyan said, “We have array of presidential candidates, Atiku who has been running over time, Kwankwaso who has been in PDP then APC and now in NNPP, Peter Obi who was in APGA, then moved to PDP and now in Labour party. Obasanjo is the best person to say something about his running mate.

“Tinubu, everyone knows that Tinubu has better credentials to govern this country. We will see Nigeria as one place.

“Most of the things we have been clamouring for since the period of NADECO are in his pocket.

“So, there is no doubt that Tinubu is the best candidate. He is the only person that can bridge the gap between the poor and the rich.

“The situation in Nigeria is not palatable to us. Insecurity is the bane of development in this country.

“If you want to travel from here to Osogbo, you need to take some security escorts. These are the things we think Tinubu will correct. The love of the masses is paramount in his heart”.
