His words:

“There is no politician in this country that has recorded the feat Tinubu has recorded in politics. He is a builder of men and resources. In Lagos, he laid a master plan, midwifed and engineered it, and Lagos becomes what it is today.

“Tinubu is the only politician in Nigeria that has mentored the highest number of politicians; strategically pooling them, placing them in strategic positions, and giving them wings to fly.

“He kept helping others to become what they wanted to become; while his contemporaries were busy contesting the presidential position. This is the kind of leader that will build Nigeria and its people.

“If the southeast also gives its support, it will succeed in building good alliances, friendships and bonding that will make others accept and support its candidate in the next opportunity.

“Instead of agitations, the southeast should start to negotiate, build friendship and alliances, to grab future opportunities.”
