2023 Presidency: Tinubu Coherent With His Campaign Promises – Oshiomhole
The Deputy Director General of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Adams Oshiomhole, says the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has promised to execute his campaign promises in an organised way.
Speaking during a live appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday, the former governor of Edo State said Tinubu made his campaign promises in a very coherent manner.
Oshiomhole said the achievements of the party’s flagbearer in Lagos are there for all Nigerians to see, saying that Tinubu has the capacity to take difficult decisions.
The former APC National Chairman said Tinubu believes that Nigeria should be restructured and that he demonstrated it through the creation of extra local government councils in Lagos when he was governor.
He said: “Tinubu has promised what he is going to do in a very coherent manner. Look at what he (Tinubu) did in Lagos.
“The real issue in Nigeria is mobilising resources and look at how he mobilised resources from a state that was earning N600m IGR (internally generated revenue) to what it is earning now in a month. So, he has the capacity to take difficult decisions.”
Sanwo-Olu Has Performed Better Than Ambode
Speaking further, Oshiomhole justified Tinubu’s decision not to allow the former governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, to run for a second term in office.
The former APC national chairman claimed that Ambode performed below expectations, saying that the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has performed better than his predecessor.
