Tolu Bankole, a member of the APC’s National Working Committee, hailed Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the party’s presidential candidate on Friday, describing him as a patriot who cares about the general welfare of the populace.
Bankole who made this known in an announcement in Abuja, claimed that Tinubu’s worry about the ongoing fuel crisis and the limited supply of new naira notes painted a picture of him as someone who was not in a rush to become president.
In his words, Bankole said: “The strong position expressed by our party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is a show of commitment to a better Nigeria and her endless possibilities.
“True patriotism implies a deep love for one’s country that not only desires the best for one’s fellow countrymen but also demands that the country should pursue its aims with honesty and empathy.
“He has displayed an ineffable love unequalled in the political history of the world. Asiwaju chose to empathise with the masses that have been subjected to untold hardship.
“The easier option by most party faithful would be to say yes or maintain silence to all government programmes no matter how discomforting for political correctness.
“The ability to confront and speak out against some policies of the government considered to be ‘anti-masses’ by Asiwaju should be applauded by all. Selflessness is exhibited at the most critical moment. Tinubu is not desperate to be President.
He asserted that Tinubu’s actions at “this key juncture of our political journey” were a resounding testament to his unmatched leadership.
“This demonstration of pure heart, love for Nigerians, and commitment to improving welfare and well-being of all Nigerians will drive his Renewed Hope agenda to tame insecurity; tackle unemployment, and turn the economy around for shared prosperity,” he concluded.
