Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos State, declared on Thursday that Bola Tinubu, the party’s presidential candidate and national leader, is the man most qualified to lead Nigeria out of all those vying to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari on May 29, 2023.

When he delivered the keynote address at the Yoruba Tennis Club’s 95+1th anniversary lecture, which was held at the club’s Greeting Hall in Lagos, he advised Nigerians to vote for competence and stay away from religious sentiments in the 2023 presidential elections.

The next president of Nigeria should be picked for his or her leadership, character, daring of thought, and aptitude for in-depth research and problem-solving, according to Sanwo-Olu, who advised Nigerians to avoid religious conflict in light of the APC’s Muslim-Muslim joint presidential ticket.

He stated:

The topic of a Muslim-Muslim Ticket is unrelated. My wife and I both identify as Christians, but we are all too aware that the issue is not one of faith. We’ve forgotten that the Action Congress of Nigeria ran Mallam Nuhu Ribadu and Mr. Fola Adeola on a Muslim-Muslim ticket for president in 2011. We were not aware of any issues at the time.

“But suddenly, they want to split us up because there’s a chance that this ticket (Tinubu-Shettima) may win. We’ll decline since that doesn’t reflect who we are. The topic is leadership. Character is a key factor. It has to do with the courage to think. It has to do with the capacity to think critically and solve issues.

“We don’t want to look down on the other candidates. We all know too well what their antecedents are. We all know too what their credentials are. But we know that as a nation, we need a strong launch pad. We need to think out of the box and be able to put our best foot forward.

“I want to thank the leadership of the Yoruba Tennis Club again for making the right choice by inviting Senator Kashim Shettima to deliver the anniversary lecture.

“We are celebrating 96 years now and let it be on record that by 2026 during our centenary celebration, by the grace of God, we will have Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu coming here to celebrate with us as President on our centenary and of course by your grace and your support, I will still remain as your 15th Governor, coming here and celebrate in four years time and all of you will be here.”

Sanwo-Olu, also charged Yoruba people and residents of Lagos State to work toward the emergence of Asiwaju Tinubu as the next President of Nigeria. “We deserve to produce the next president.

“In Lagos we deserve it. Lagos requires it and it would be by the grace of God a bigger, better and stronger nation and state that all of you would be truly proud of to have been part of,” he said.

After the event, the governor wrote on his Twitter, “I used the opportunity to tell the audience that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is the most qualified to lead Nigeria come 2023. Choosing the next President should be about leadership, character, the audacity to think and the ability to think deeply and solve problems”.
