Tinubu is best politician to succeed Buhari, says support group
NEWS DIGEST – The Nigeria Diaspora for Asiwaju (NDA), a support group, says Bola Tinubu, a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), is the best person to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
Akin Badeji, director-general of the group, in a statement on Friday, said Tinubu will consolidate on the achievements of Buhari.
He said everyone should support Tinubu for the 2023 presidency irrespective of tribal or religious sentiments.
Badeji is a UK-based chieftain of the APC.
“Tinubu stands out as one politician with the best résumé to consolidate on the next level milestones of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration,” he said.
“NDA is a partisan group aimed at garnering support in the Diaspora and across the length and breadth of Nigeria for Tinubu presidency, come 2023.
“We looked around for such personality with the political clout and national appeal to the various interest groups, that can consolidate on whatever achievements the Buhari government has made.
“And we discovered that one of the All Progressives Congress (APC) national leaders, Tinubu, is the best man for the job.
“As a bridge-builder with a great personality and mentality that recognises all and sundry, there cannot be a better replacement for President Buhari come 2023.”
Badeji said Nigeria is on national rebirth pioneered by Buhari after “several years of maladministration by former handlers”.
He added that the group, which has its headquarters in London, United Kingdom, and a country office in Abuja, would not rest on its oars until it achieves its desire of enthroning a Tinubu presidency.
