Abuja (Precise Post) – Group under the auspices of Disciples of Jagaban, has asked Nigerians to reject the alleged elite gang-up to truncate the ambition of the former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, of becoming president in 2023.
The group, rooting for Tinubu’s Presidency noted that since the former governor informed President Muhammadu Buhari, the elite had started scheming so Tinubu would not emerge the next president.
Against this backdrop, the National Coordinator of the DOJ, Abdulhakeem Alawuje, in a statement on Friday, urged the masses to rise up against those who attempt to stop Tinubu.
The statement is titled, ‘Tinubu’s detractors, enemies of Nigeria’, read in part, “Detractors of Tinubu are not just Jagaban’s opponents, they are the collective enemies of the people, and if Nigerians fail to stop them now, we may not be able to stop them for a very long time.
“We all know how these people appropriated the resources of Lagos State before the emergence of Tinubu on the scene in 1999.
Except the respite brought by former governor Lateef Jakande, Lagosians had long been denied the dividends of democracy and fruits of good governance, despite the fact that Lagos was the capital of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
But since Tinubu took over the leadership of Lagos State, it has become a prosperous and a pacesetter state to date, under his guardianship and mentorship.”
