“Obasanjo always says Tinubu is stubborn. Yes, he is; but that is for the right reason because he enjoys my support. Tinubu stands with the people. And whether anybody likes it or not, he is a force to reckon with in Nigerian politics today.”
This were the words of Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, who hailed the strength and vision of APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Akiolu, speaking at the fund raising programme of the Oyo State Education Truat Fund (Oyo ETF) in Ibadan, on Tuesday, said Tinubu’s perceived stubbornness is as a result of standing for what is right and what people want.
The Lagos monarch, who was a special guest at the event, poured encomiums on Governor Abiola Ajimobi and linked him to Tinubu who he described as his good subject who has his backing for his political moves.
Oba Akiolu also stated that the APC will come out tops in the 2019 elections.
His words: “Let me tell you all, no party will wrest power from the APC. I’m not hiding it. God chose Governor Akinwumi Ambode and He has our support. But things must be put right at the federal level. Let everyone do good and stand for honesty.”
