Dr. Abiola Oshodi, a Canada-based medical practitioner, has advised the leadership of All Progressives Congress (APC) to give the presidential ticket of the party to former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for him to able to rescue the nation from the precipice.
This was contained in a goodwill message of the philanthropist to the citizenry in commemoration of the nation’s 61st independence anniversary.
He emphasised that the nation needed a cerebral personality like Tinubu who could revamp the collapsed economy of the nation.
Dr. Oshodi, a psychiatrist, who hails from Owo, Ondo State, noted that a critical look at how Lagos State had been transformed since the advent of Tinubu’s political dynasty was a testimony to the confidence the people reposed in him that he would turn around the fortune of the nation if given a chance.
“As we celebrate our independence, we should rob minds on how to save our nation from collapse.
“As things stand currently, virtually all the sectors are in serious recession and or outright comatose and we need to plan ahead for 2023 on who succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari and strategically start to plan ahead measures to give new breath of life to our nation . There’s no better person that can lead this socioeconomic revival that the nation currently needs as a matter of urgency than Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
It is pertinent to mention that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is appropriate man to take over the running of the nation’s affairs having demonstrated his managerial acumen while in saddle as the governor of Lagos State.
“The template he designed is what his successors have been following and the state has been transformed in terms of infrastructural and socio-economic developments.
“All Progressives Congress (APC) should avail him the presidential ticket so that the electorate can vote for him during the 2023 presidential election,” Dr. Oshodi said.
He, therefore, called on Nigerians to support President Buhari’s efforts to keep the nation united in spite of the series of challenges being faced by the nation.
