The spokesperson for All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, has assured that his principal, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, will not disrespect the rule of law if elected president in 2023.
Keyamo said Tinubu was a victim of military brutality in his struggle for democracy and will not in any way abuse the rule of law.
While stating that the former Lagos State governor has chronicled his proposed reform for the Nigerian judiciary in his 80-page manifesto, the Minister of State for Labour said Tinubu was the most prepared of all the four contenders for the highest office in the land.
He told Punch, “We have his plan about reforms and respect for the rule of law in our manifesto. Tinubu himself who was one of the greatest victims of military brutality, whose government then in Lagos was a victim of disobedience of the Supreme Court Judgment regarding Local Government funds.
“He has been a victim of it. I believe he also knows where the shoe pinches. Among the four leading aspirants, as we called them even though we know they are three, none of them fought for Democracy as much as Asiwaju. This is what the media knows very well. It is not a matter of blowing one’s trumpet. We don’t have to prove anything as well. He is the even one that can be trusted more than anybody.”
