2023: Osinbajo, Fayemi, Fashola, Amosun Are Mismatch For Tinubu – Ogunlewe


LAGOS – Senator Seye Ogunlewe, former Min­ister of Works has said that if the presidency of the country is zoned to the Southwest in 2023, the likes of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, Minis­ter of Works, Babatunde Fashola, Gov­ernor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State and Senator Ibikunle Amosun cannot match Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the na­tional leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Ogunlewe emphasized that all be­long to the same family, adding that Tinubu remains the father of all and leader as none of them match the lead­er one-on-one in politics.

The former lawmaker, who was a guest on Arise Television on Wednes­day said, “Tinubu made them and he can tell them how he has been able to raise them. I prefer Tinubu as president because he has developed a lot of hu­man resource systems.

“We have seen how he was able to place several people in certain positions. Look at the composition of the struc­ture of Nigeria. Where is the Vice-Pres­ident from? Where is the Speaker of the House of Representatives from? Did that happen by accident?

He added, “Somebody who was working behind the scene made it pos­sible to place his people in the structure of Nigeria. I am amazed how he was able to achieve that. I have been in the system, and I cannot believe that a sub­stantial number of Northerners will vote for a Southwest speaker when we have a Yoruba man as the vice-presi­dent. I have worked with the Northern people and for them to have agreed to that structure, we should give it to Tinubu.”

Regrettably, Ogunlewe said should the southeast region be given the oppor­tunity to present the next president, the people are divided.
