Tinubu’s presidency in 2023 means prosperity for Nigeria—APC Chieftain

An All Progressives Congress’ (APC) Chieftain in Lagos State, Olusegun Idowu has said Nigeria will be better for it, if the party’s national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu becomes the next president in 2023.

Idowu, founder of Omoluabi Eko Initiative, a support group in APC, said Tinubu’s ability to work with brightest minds would surely come to play, when he becomes the country’s next president.

He explained that Tinubu’s experience, while he was in the private sector would come to play when he emerges the president.
“Asiwaju worked as a treasurer in Mobil Plc, and that alone means he knows how to manage finances, which will be a plus for the nation. The issue of inflation which is biting hard on Nigeria today will become a thing of the past,” he said.
According to Idowu, who is also CEO, Window-H Investment Ltd, a revenue consulting and concession management company, “Tinubu will not leave the problem of insecurity only to the military to confront, he will engage all the concerned stakeholders in the community to get the issue resolved.

“Our reason for canvassing for Tinubu to contest is premised on his dexterity as a seasoned technocrat who knows his onions. His presidency in 2023 means prosperity for all.

“Another sterling quality is his knack for identifying competent leaders for different positions, irrespective of their religious beliefs and tribe, which will make his administration a success. We believe that both the micro and macro economic issues will be handled by eminently qualified professionals, and Nigeria will experience the expected prosperity we all desire as a nation.

“So, we are urging Tinubu to contest for the presidency in 2023, because he has the prerequisite experience. He has the clout, he has the support of the masses across the length and breath of Nigeria. The people are just waiting for him to declare his intention to run.

“For those of us in Omoluabi Eko Initiative, we have commenced this campaign through the social media and pasting of banners and posters, and we intend to do that throughout Nigeria. We will make sure that he contest because we believe in his ability to make Nigeria great again and make it secure for all of us,” he added.
