The Media Director for the All Progressives Congress Presidential Council for Canada Dr. Abiola Oshodi has given reasons why Nigerians should vote for All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Oshodi urged Nigerians to keep themselves abreast of political undercurrents ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Oshodi, in a statement in Akure, said the country needs a competent and visionary person as a President to take it to a new level comes 2023.
He said Tinubu proved his support for restructuring when he became the first governor to create 37 more local councils in order to bring government closer to the people.
The Canada- based Psychiatrist pointed out that Tinubu laid the foundation for modern Lagos which accounts for a chunk of capital importation into Nigeria.
Oshodi said Tinubu would give the country the leadership that would inspire it to greater glory with new thinking, innovative ideas, and vision.
According to him: “Whosoever wins the presidential election in 2023 will be confronted with monumental challenges and opportunities within and outside the country that will test the mettle of such a president.
“Nigeria is at a delicate stage of its developmental process and needs a President with hands-on experience and Senator Tinubu who has governed Lagos, the most commercial of Nigeria’s 36 States deserves to be given an opportunity to pilot Nigeria’s affairs from May 29, 2023.
“Tinubu is a man with innovative thinking who touched every facet of Lagos as a governor from 1999- 2007. An attribute needed by Nigeria at this stage of its development for the desired transformation.
“He created the Ministry of Environment to tackle the issue of flooding head-on, introduced the one-day governor program that brought young boys and girls into the limelight, and reformed the health sector accompanied with the distribution of free eyeglasses.
“He brought the Lekki corridor into the limelight. The Lekki corridor had become a beehive of economic activities with the Dangote Refinery and Petrochemicals; the Dangote Fertiliser, a 2.5 billion dollar investment, and the Lekki Sea Port are among the companies located today in the Lekki Free Zone.”
