“His capacity and the political will to institute a new concept of governance and new agenda of sustainable development, to provide effective leadership, capable of providing solutions to the numerous challenges confronting the nation are not in doubt.

“As a politician, Asiwaju Tinubu has shown he is a master strategist, as a leader, he has built men, as governor, he excelled and as a party leader, he has guided the APC to success at different polls.

“Tinubu stands out from the pack, he is a lover of people, which for me should be the driving force of politics. This love for the people have been the driving force of his numerous struggles for democracy and good governance”, Kosoko said

We are supporting him because we have witnessed first hand what he is capable of. We have testimonies of his humane nature, his love for development, his love for the people of this country and his resolve to take the country to a greater height.

For the Prince of Ondo Kingdom, “Before the schools were shut down, the first thing that was shut down was the presidency. The presidency has been shut down for the past seven years. The government has shut itself down. If we are not careful, the government will be the bandits and the bandits will be arresting the government. We need to be serious and the do the work. We need our people in security to pay attention, we need the president to protect us and be the Commander in Chief”.

He said until there is honest and purposeful leadership ,the country might just still continue grappling with almost the challenges it is presently facing, adding that only the person with capacity and capability can bring the country out of the woods. ” All the problems the latest of which is banditry, our debt servicing is bigger than our income is all arising from the deficit of our dishonesty that we are not honest people, that when we are given authority to exercise, we don’t do it honestly. If we change our ways, God’s blessing will be upon us. There is no mystery about leadership in Nigeria. It is just that the right leader must come with the right heart, with the right people”, he stated.

For Reverend Ayokunle, there is need to elect the right leader who will make Nigeria work better.
“There is need to elect the right person who will make Nigeria work better and transform its fortunes for the benefit of all. We need as many people as God has touched to contest for the presidency so that people have ample opportunities to chose from”.
