A support group, Coalition Movement for Bola Ahmed Tinubu (COMBAT), has said the presidential flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, deserves to succeed Muhammadu Buhari as President in 2023.
The group, in a statement issued on Sunday by its Convener, Senator Rilwan Akanbi, said the achievements and track records in Lagos State make Tinubu more deserving of the presidency.
It added that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Peter Obi, cannot match Tinubu in terms of political achievements.
The group noted that Tinubu deserves to become the next President of Nigeria, stressing that his economic track record takes him ahead of other candidates for being recognized as the visionary behind the success of the Lagos State economy.
According to the group, what appeared to be common among the four leading contenders for the number one political office in Nigeria is the fact that they have participated and won the governorship elections in their states in the past. In addition, they have held different political positions at the federal government levels.
The statement read, “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu stands out among the major contenders in promotion of democratic consolidation to reposition Nigeria before and during his tenure as Lagos state government.
