Bola Ahmed Tinubu: The Best Man For The Job – Green Movement

One interest thing about the ‘Asiwaju’, is the fact that he is perceived differently by different people. From being the new ‘Awo’, a bullish businessman, to a tactical politician. The streams of opinions about his persona continue to burgeon. What is very clear from the multiplicity of perceptions and opinions about him is that he is an icon and a figure to reckon with in contemporary Nigeria.

Asiwaju Bola Ahamed Tinubu is one unique Nigerian personality with imposing features, strides, and achievements. A politician, businessman and leader of thought.

He has in the last 16 years risen to become the Generalissimo of Nigerian politics.

Before becoming the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), his role as a strong opposition leader cannot be glossed over. Rather than joined the ruling party then, the Peoples Democratic Party, as it was the fad among politicians, he stood in the sun and in the rain to build the then Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) into a formidable national party.

Using that platform, he fought for good governance and federalism, properly called and applied. Even when as a Governor, his government was starved of fund by the Obasanjo administration due to the creation of L.C.D.A in Lagos state, he was still firm and undaunted.

Before this, along with like-minded patriots, he has put up stiff resistance against the military junta of Gen. Sanni Abacha, risking his life and everything he has worked to achieve up till that stage of his life.

Even though this patriotic fervour earned him exile, together with other patriots of his ilk, the monumental sacrifices birthed this fourth republic.

Indeed, Nigeria’s political story will be incomplete without acknowledging the significant contributions of Asiwaju Bola Ahamed Tinubu.

He was a key force in the merger of his party, the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) with other parties like the CPC (Congress for Progressive Change), a faction of APGA (All Progressive Grand Alliance) and the ANPP(All Nigerians People’s Party) to form the All Progressives Congress (APC).

His strategic political roadmap of aligning the West with the North was key to the APC’s victory in the 2015 general elections.

His sagacity made possible the emergence of General Muhammadu Buhari as the standard bearer of APC at the party’s convention in 2015. His loyalty to the President has never be in doubt. He was also intrumental to the choice of Prof. Yemi Osibanjo as APC’s Vice Presidential candidate

Nothing is as interesting as achieving one’s dream. Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will always relish the fact that his party, the APC, has broken the jinx of sit tight syndrome among political parties in Nigeria by defeating the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after sixteen unbroken years at the helms of affairs that can arguably pass for wasted years.

Tinubu, also referred to as the ‘Jagaban’, can be rated as one of the most influential politicians in Africa, in the 21st century.

Looking into the crystal ball, with the multi dimensional challenges plaguing this country, the person most suited to lead us out of the hydra headed challenges confronting the nation, into the land of promise flowing with milk and honey is Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, the Jagaban of Borgu Kingdom.
