The lawmaker representing Uboma/Obowo Federal Constituency of Imo State in the House of Representatives, Hon. John Chike Okafor, has boasted that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the next president of Nigeria.
According to him, Tinubu would be inaugurated as Nigeria’s president in 2023.
Speaking with Vanguard, the APC chieftain said, “Tinubu will be inaugurated the president of this country come May 29th 2023.
“Have you ever heard of this saying that “when preparation meets opportunity, the resultant result is success” He’s worked for it. He is qualified, former senator, two time governor, he set the foundation of the Lagos that you have today. The man is ready and prepared. He is abreast with current realities.
Asked if he’s not bothered about the backlash trailing the Muslim-Muslim ticket, Okafor said, “Yes, I am bothered about it but if those who are attacking it didn’t think it could give APC the victory, why are they attacking it? Why not just go home and sleep and say APC has driven the vehicle into a ditch, it cannot come out. Let us think about it. Muslim-Muslim ticket, yes, we are from the south, it is not appealing to us but APC is looking at how to win election. So, to me what the party has done is to look at the environment. Tinubu has emerged from the south. Ok, fine, he is from the south but minority religion in the south. I want to look at this critically.”
