Tinubu Governed A Country Like Lagos, He Is Best For Nigeria- Gbajabiamila

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has said it would be wrong to compare the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu with contestants like Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar.


Naijaonpoint reports that Femi Gbajabiamila said the former governor of Lagos state has gained the experience needed in governing a country having been in charge of a Lagos.


Gbajabiamila who said this while speaking during a meeting with leaders of Community Development Associations (CDAs) in Surulere, Lagos State, said it would be wrong to assume Lagos is a state and not a country.


The House of Reps speaker added that Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour Party, was governor of Anambra State for eight years; Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was vice president of Nigeria for eight years. But none of the two can compete with Tinubu who governed Lagos for eight years.



Gbajabiamila added that Nigerians will vote for the APC presidential candidate because they believe in his capacity.


He said, “Today, they say there are three or four front-runner presidential candidates. There was something that I used to say many years ago. I used to say it is not by mouth, it is by what you do; the seeds that you’ve sown.


“So, today, I ask people of all the front runners, they all have records; Asiwaju has a record of 8 years as governor; Peter Obi has a record of 8 years as governor in Anambra; Atiku has a record as Vice President for 8 years.


“When you put their records side-by-side, there is no competition whatsoever, Asiwaju stands tall shoulders above everybody. In his (Tinubu’s) case, Lagos is not even like a state; Lagos is like a country in terms of population, in terms of density, in terms of different people in the state and look at what he has been able to do.”


He further added, “This election is the one that we must campaign based on persuasion, for us to go out there and talk to those who are still sitting on the fence, who are persuaded based on religion, or ethnicity. Let them be persuaded by records, that is what I want from you.”
