The Abibat Mogaji Beneficiaries Vanguard for Bola Ahmed Tinubu (AMBV4BAT) has said the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the most competent of all candidates aspiring to occupy the highest political office in Nigeria in 2023.
The National Coordinator of AMBV4BAT, Alh. Salman Akorede made this known at the press conference organised by the group in Shangisha, Lagos on Sunday 27 Nov.
Akorede explained that the conference was organised to educate Nigerians on the rare qualities of Bola Tinubu and the reasons they should vote for him to restore the glory and prosperity of the country.
According to him, the electorate seek to elect leaders because they need prosperity, adding that Nigeria needs Bola’s heart of generosity; his progressive vision; strategic skills and competence in governance to lead it on the path of progress and prosperity.
He said Bola Tinubu inherited the heart of generosity from his late mother, Alhaja Abibat Mogaji.
“Mama was a mama in totality. She supported everybody, in fact, I went to my first hajj through Alhaja Abibat Magaji. I was only 21 years old. She just called me and said I want you to be an Alhaji, and that was it. I didn’t have anything, but she provided everything. That was mama for you, and she did that for so many people, whether she knew you or not.
“Her generosity was not limited to sending people to hajj. When you need anything and you go to her, she would respond to you. Asiwaju, being a true son of Alhaja, born, bred and mentored by Alhaja, has imbibed the spirit of generosity of his mother, Alhaja Abibat Asabi Magaji.
“If you have been following his political style, his leadership style, everybody will tell you that Asiwaju has a very large heart. He does not care where you come from, whether you are a Yoruba, a Hausa or Ibo, or you are from the West, or South or from the North. If you have a chance to meet Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, you would respect him for his large heart, his generosity, his love, and his leadership.
“So many orphans were educated and mentored by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. As a leader in government, he hired people from across Nigeria. His cabinet was filled with people across Nigeria. And that has defined his political style. A few days ago, I was trying to analyse the kind of support that Asiwaju enjoys nationwide and I said it can only be from Asiwaju because he has spread his tentacles across the nation.
“Asiwaju is a leader that has touched so many lives, and that is why you could see the number of people that have risen in support of him nationwide. He is not giving anybody anything, people are just doing it willingly. I can’t imagine a kind of support that is better than what he is getting from across the country. I have travelled all over the country. Since this project started, I have interacted with people from all regions and I could see the passion with which people responded”, Akorede narrated.
While responding to the question of Tinubu’s competence, Akorede retorted: “So, what kind of leader do you think we need in the country now? Is it one who does not know even what to do? Nigeria needs someone with a very clear mind, a clear purpose who knows the destination. He has a roadmap. He is very wise, well-educated and very intelligent. He is very competent, he has done it in Lagos.”
