The Bola Ahmed Tinubu Global Ambassadors (BATGA), a support group for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate, Bola Tinubu, has recalled how he risked his life for Nigeria in the past.
Mr Kayode Olabode, National Coordinator (BATGA), disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Saturday.
Olabode said the former Lagos State governor “had been working and putting his life in harm’s way for cause tailored towards making Nigeria work.”
He said that it is time for the nation to reciprocate the gesture by supporting Tinibu to win the presidential election in 2023.
“Even when he was in the United States, he was there for Late MKO Abiola during his presidential campaign.
“He was a major supporter of Afenifere and NADECO pro-Democrats and good governance against the military junta.
“He came back home to contribute immensely to make Nigeria great. Let’s use Lagos State as a case study.
“As an Executive Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu stood his ground and ensured that he created 37 LCDAs in addition to 20 LGAs making a total of 57 LGA.”
Olabode said that this created lot of employments for Lagos Youths both Indigenes and non-indigenes.
He added that even when the then President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo stopped Lagos State Allocation, he managed the state’s IGR prudently and ensured he didn’t owe any civil servants.
Olabode urged Nigerians in diaspora to see Tinubu as a case study of a transformational leader and a political strategist.
