2023: MC Oluomo Sends Message To Southwest Over Tinubu’s Presidential Ambition

The chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Lagos state, Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo has urged the southwest to support the presidential ambition of the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu .

MC Oluomo made call via a video posted on Instagram, sharing a video of Tinubu when the former Lagos state governor paid a visit to the governor of Zamfara state, Bello Matawalle, over the recent attacks on citizens of the state by bandits.



He wrote: “My amiable APC national leader and incoming president (insha allah) visits Zamfara State Governor, Dr Bello Muhammad Matawalle, to sympathise with them over the senseless bloodletting occasioned by the nefarious activities of the bandits.

“This is another call to our brothers and sisters in the South-West to support our father, son and friend, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for the 2023 presidential election. A man with God is a majority.”

Meanwhile, the declaration by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu that he will contest for presidency in 2023, seems like a reinforcement of the calls for the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo to throw his hat in the ring for the forthcoming presidential elections.

From TV anchors on such stations as African Independent Television (AIT), Arise TV, and Channels TV, to newspapers and online platforms, the conversation is for the vice president to get in line for the race.



On AIT’s Kakaaki programme on Tuesday, January 11,renowned columnist and news analyst, Majeed Dahiru argued that the vice president should be the number one pick for the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC .

He also stated that the southwest could lose its opportunity to present the next president if Osinbajo is not picked.

Dahiru said the person from the southwest that is acceptable to the entire country and the youth demography is Osinbajo.

Also, on Arise TV’s morning show programme, anchors Oseni Rufai and Reuben Abati stated that it was a no-brainer for Osinbajo to run for the 2023 presidency.

On Channels TV, Fouad Oki, an APC chieftain said that the vice president should contest because he is eminently qualified to lead Nigeria.

He noted that Asiwaju Tinubu and his supporters should not get emotional if the vice president decides to run.



On his part, Senator Magnus Abe, the former representative of the Rivers South- East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, described the former governor of Lagos state, Tinubu, as a promoter of excellence, saying he is capable and qualified to become Nigeria’s President in 2023.

He said the APC leader is one leader who places capacity and competence above loyalty in all his dealings, The Punch reports.

The APC chieftain said this during a breakfast meeting with journalists in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital on Tuesday, January 11.

Abe explained that the story of Lagos state and where it is today cannot be discussed without mentioning Tinubu.

Reacting to those who said Tinubu was too old to occupy the plum office, Abe noted age can never be an issue in leadership, adding that Tinubu is eminently qualified and has the party structure to become President.
