Senator Adeseye Ogunlewe, Nigeria’s former minister of work has drum support for the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Bola Tinubu to be president in 2023.
“I have been reading and watching a lot of comments about it. I believe 2023 should be thrown open,” he told Sun.
“Nobody should be shut out. There is nothing wrong about Southwest showing interest. We are talking about democracy.”
“To shut out some people or group is undemocratic. Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu wants to contest, let him contest.”
“What is the noise about Tinubu all about? Is Tinubu not qualified to contest? I will support Tinubu if he wants to contest.”
“Tinubu has paid his dues. If Tinubu wants to contest, let him contest, and let Nigerians decide his fate.”
“Tinubu is a dogged fighter. He has triumphed over many challenges. He has seen it all. He can do it if given the chance.”
“Nothing in life is static. Tinubu is from the Southwest, and anything for the progress of Southwest, I’m for it.”
“If the 2023 project is for Southwest interests, then I’m now on the same page with Tinubu, and I have no apology for it.”
