2023: I’m with Tinubu for president – Asari Dokubo
A NIGER Delta activist, Asari Dokubo, has thrown his weight behind the presidential ambition of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Bola Tinubu.
He said Tinubu is miles ahead of other contenders for Aso Rock.
“For the presidential election, I am with Tinubu because I saw what he did in Lagos State and the legacies he left behind,” he said on Channels Television today.
“Lagos has transformed from what it used to be like a big ghetto, a junkyard to a global centre and one of the biggest economies in the whole of Africa. Somebody kickstarted it; somebody laid the foundation,” he maintained.
While he said other contenders like the Labour Party’s Peter Obi and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) were former governors and in a similar league like Tinubu, he said Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) does not have such a credential.
“Atiku has actually never actually handled executive power. He was a spare tire. He was a vice president,” Dokubo said.
