“Tinubu Has Leadership structures To Win The Election” – Igbokwe Reacts To Osinbajo’s Declaration
Joe Igbokwe, A chieftain of All Progressives Congress in Lagos State, says former Lagos governor and APC presidential hopeful, Bola Tinubu, has political and leadership structures that can win a presidential election.
According to Igbokwe, who is an aide to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, every eligible Nigerian including Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) has the constitutional right to vote and aspire for any office in the land.
Igbokwe, a firm supporter of Tinubu, stated this on Monday, shortly after Osinbajo declared to run for president in 2023, ending years of conjecture about his political future.
The APC chieftain said, “If you want to win an election in Nigeria, you have to have structures, deep structures across the country that you have built for over 20 years. That id what you need to win the presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“Tinubu has a structure, just like (MKO) Abiola did in 1993; Abiola had a history before 1993. Asiwaju (Tinubu) also has a history but let’s wait and see.
“The structures on ground will be the determining factor. We want Asiwaju.”
Earlier on Monday, Osinbajo, Nigeria’s Vice-President since May 2015, said that he would want to succeed his principal, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), and complete all that the APC government started seven years ago.
