The Instagram comedian, MC Jollof has compared the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu to former Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson ahead of the 2023 general elections.

While Ferguson is widely regarded as one of the greatest football managers of all time due to his success with the English club, MC Jollof says Tinubu has also managed to successfully win every election he has been involved in.

Speaking in an interview with veteran radio personality Dr. Freeze, MC Jollof claimed that the APC City boy' is the Alex Ferguson of our time.

'He is the Sir Alex Ferguson of our time, just like Paul Scholes.

He came one year and gave them the Premier league' MC Jollof said.

MC Jollof's claim, while confirming his support for the 70-year-old APC Chieftain, seems to hint at the success achieved by Tinubu who has been in politics for over two decades.

The APC Presidential flag-bearer and former Governor of Lagos state has often times been credited, with successfully winning elections for the party, as has been evident with his party's dominance at the seat of power in the Metropolis since his tenure ended in May of 2007.

Tinubu has also largely been synonymous with success, helping APC retain power in the South-Western region of Nigeria at State level as well as helping the party dethrone the ruling PDP party being the then-opposition in the 2015 General Elections.

Ferguson who is now 80-year-old has won more trophies than any other manager in the history of football.

Ferguson is also one of the most popular managers in English football history, due to his immense success with Premier League giants Manchester United, particularly in the 1990s after his "Class of '92", contributed to making the club one of the richest and most successful in the world.
