Doyin Okupe, the former President Aide to President Goodluck Jonathan has revealed that the National Leader of the All Progressive Party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu will be a good President for the country ahead of the 2023 election
The politician believes Tinubu is a formidable opponent but he believes he has a slight edge over him.
Okupe, who is also nursing the same ambition, said this while commenting on the viral video of Tinubu who slipped after taking a wrong step at the Annual Arewa House Lecture.
“I think I should begin by commenting on the Bola Tinubu’s purported ” slump” or “stumbling”
“Just on my observation drawn from watching the video currently in circulation.”
“There was neither a fall nor a slump. From that video, these English words cannot be ascribed to what is seen in the video.
“What I saw was a Bola Tinubu walking on a plain and unaware of a step down in level or a slight descent which created a misstep and a stumble leading to a brief staggering which can happen to anyone walking in a crowded unfamiliar terrain.”
“Please let it be clear that I am not commenting on the state of health of Asiwaju.
“Asiwaju (Tinubu) is one of the most politically sagacious politicians in this period. His acumen & administrative competence are worthy of commendation. In summary, Asiwaju will be a good President”
“However, I believe I have a slight edge over him in that I understand national and Presidential politics more than him and in terms of intellectual resourcefulness we are at par if I am not better.”
