Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for Labour and Employment, has said Nigerians need the All Progressives Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, badly at the moment.
Keyamo described Tinubu as a wealth creator, adding that if elected as Nigeria president in the forthcoming elections, he will take the country out of the woods.
Keyamo, who doubles as the Spokesperson of APC presidential campaign, stated this in an interview with Nigerian NewsDirect on Thursday in Abuja.
He added that Tinubu is a political, economic genius and as such, all Nigerian voters should embrace him.
In his words, “The manifesto will be released and you will know exactly some of the specific issues. I mean on a micro level each of this points.
“Asiwaju Tinubu is a wealth creator. He’s an expert in wealth creation and what the country badly needs now is about wealth creation. If someone who turned around the fortune of Lagos and the revenue of Lagos. Some people said the debt of Lagos also went up. Yes of course, debt going up is an indication that you are now becoming credit worthy. With that heavy debt, no creditor is complaining.
“It is a different thing if creditors are complaining but when people are now dashing you money and begging you to come and take, it shows the highest level of credit worthiness. This is because of your capacity and response. So that is a credit to us. The debt we are talking about is a credit to us not a minus. It shows the highest level of confidence that creditors now have in Lagos State so he’s a wealth creator and that is his strongest point and like I said will be in the manifesto.
“And you can see people laughing at his manifesto and that is a real. He talks about Cassava and Agbado and that is staple food. He’s talking about Agriculture already. Do you want him to talk pizza or Burger, is that what you want him to mention. These are staple food in Nigeria. Cassava is Garri, Agbado is grains and this is going to solve our food problems. This is what we eat. If you ask me what will I eat, I will tell you it is cassava and agbado and what else because these are our national Food. When the bakers where complaining, they have to switch to cassava bread. If you think we should stop promoting our local food which is Cassava and Agbado, it is a big lie we need to teach our young people this.”
