A former Governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo state, Dr Segun Abraham on Monday organised a solidarity rally for the APC Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima.
The solidarity rally was sponsored by Abraham, the APC Chieftain and long time friend of the former Governor of Lagos State.
According to Abraham, the rally was essentially to solicit massive support and appealed to Nigerians to vote for him towards the betterment of the nation.
While addressing the large crowd of party supporters, Abraham, said Tinubu remains the best candidate for the job because of his capacity and experience.
The former APC governorship aspirant, said all hands must be on deck to ensure that the APC presidential candidate wins with wide margin in the South West States.
He also described as inconsequential, the support of former President Olusegun Obasanjo for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
Abraham who was the runners up in the APC primary that produced Oluwarotimi Akeredolu as governor said “when it comes to electoral value, voting, Obasanjo has failed Nigerians woefully. Obasanjo even lost in his own unit in 1999.
“We don’t respect him when it come to electoral value. He is not the one that will tell us who to vote for in the coming general election. I know that people will not even vote for Obi in his own house or unit.”
Also speaking, the state chairman of the party, Ade Adetimehin said since the leader of Yoruba, Chief Reuben Fasoranti had endorsed Tinubu and other endorsement pale into insignificant.
Adetimehin said among other candidates seeking to succeed Buhari as president, Tinubu is the most qualified and competent having served as governor, Senator and the National leader of the ruling APC.
Ade Adetimehin, who spoke on the chances of Tinubu said “we ask for votes for Tinubu because of his credibility, capacity, capability and action for the development of Nigeria.
His words “The chances of Tinubu in Yoruba land is paramount, he has no rival, he is our leader in Yoruba land. He has the credibility and believes so much in Yoruba, he has never failed any election in Yoruba land. You could recollect that he was the governor of Lagos state for eight years and he did well. He know how to win election, he know how to do politicking.
Also, forme Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Abdulsalam said the endorsement of Obi by Obasanjo was because he was envious of the record of Tinubu in Yoruba land.
His words “I am a Yoruba man, and Yoruba in the Southwest know Obasanjo, he never like someone that will out do him, he doesn’t like talented people and he will never support people with talent. He despised Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Chief MKO Abiola and others. We know that Obasanjo can never support Tinubu, he doesn’t want anybody from Yoruba land to become president and we are not surprise about that.”
