A chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Joe Igbokwe, on Thursday said Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Leader of the ruling party, deserves to be the next president of Nigeria because he is “a labourer who deserves his pay”.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Igbokwe, the Special Adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Drainage Services, who is a staunch supporter of Tinubu, praised the two-term Lagos State Governor for ‘touching the lives of thousands’ across Nigeria. He vowed that the presidential hopeful will succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
“The holy book says a labourer deserves his pay. Asiwaju has lived for others, touched lives of thousands East, West , North or South . Take this from me: Asiwaju is the next president of Nigeria,” Igbokwe on his known Facebook page.
The Special Convention in respect of the APC’s Presidential Primaries would hold from May 30 to June 1, 2022.
Some challengers of Tinubu include Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo; Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; and Senator Ibikunle Amosun.
