Records of Atiku, Obi no match for Tinubu’s achievements as Lagos governor -Gbajabiamila


Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, says Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), stands out among other candidates.


According to a statement by Lanre Lasisi, special adviser to Gbajabiamila on media, the speaker spoke on Tuesday at a meeting with leaders of community development associations (CDAs) in Lagos.


Gbajabiamila said Tinubu has a track record which surpasses that of Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP), respectively.


“Today, they say there are four, three or four front-runner presidential candidates. There was something that I used to say many years ago. I used to say it is not by mouth, it is by what you do; the seeds that you’ve sown,” Gbajabiamila said.


 “So, today, I ask people. Of all the frontrunners — they all have records; Asiwaju has a record of 8 years as governor; Peter Obi has a record of 8 years as governor in Anambra; Atiku has a record as Vice President for 8 years — when you put their records side by side, there is no competition whatsoever. Asiwaju stands tall shoulders above everybody.


“In his (Tinubu’s) case, Lagos is not even like a state; Lagos is like a country in terms of population, in terms of density, in terms of different people in the state, and look at what he has been able to do.


“This election is one that we must campaign based on persuasion; for us to go out there and talk to those who are still sitting on the fence, who are persuaded based on religion, or ethnicity. Let them be persuaded by records; that is what I want from you.


 “I am only now asking for one request — that we all come together. Go and knock on the doors of those who are not with us; go and campaign vigorously for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
