What sort of President might a country prefer?

A pathological liar with the sugarcoated tongue of the compulsive deceiver?

Or, a pathologically corrupt and compulsive backstabber who permanently lives in another country?

Maybe someone who by the configuration of his household, alone, is just the sort of unifier we require at this time as a nation.

Maybe just someone with a proven and provable track record of excellence in service to the people.

Well, my reference point then, would be Lagos.

I first went to Lagos in 1989 to attend university.

I saw what Lagos was in the ten years from ’89 to ’99.

I saw what Lagos started becoming in the eight years from ’99 to 2007.

I see what Lagos has become now even as it continuously translates into a higher and better reality.

To those opposed to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, I can assure them that on the basis of the verifiable and ascertainable record he showcases, the one and only thing they can fear from a Tinubu Presidency is for this man to leave their country far better than he met it!

If leaving the country far better than he met it is the very worst thing he can do, I just wonder what then would be the very best thing he can do!

For me, Bola Tinubu is a study in the mystery of grace.

The man seems to have been programed from above to make things better and make better things.

I do not purpose to lecture anyone but I would consider it a sin, on my part, to reject such a leader.

I believe the Lord has heard our prayer in this country,

And that the Almighty has heard the cry of His children.

Let us all troop out to cooperate with the grace of God on Saturday.

Let us all mass out to key into the will of God for our country this Saturday and show our traducers that we are not intimidated.

Money or no money, we shall vote!

Fuel or no fuel, we shall vote!

Shenanigans or no shenanigans, conspiracies or no conspiracies, sabotage or no sabotage, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has wrapped this for the Nigerian people have wrapped it for him!

We are presently collectively under attack in this country, therefore we must stand together in love and brotherhood now more than ever before.

Wake up your neighbours on Saturday and exhort them to vote for a renewed hope for Nigeria.

Remember that many people are broke and penniless and hungry thanks to the currency chaos and other subterfuges of those hellbent on denying our country good leadership.

This is therefore a time for loving and caring and sharing together.

If there is food to spare in your house, share it with your neighbour who faces a very bleak weekend thanks to the heartlessness of our collective enemies in this country.

Eat together on Saturday morning and move together to your polling unit as fellow countrymen and women in one accord for the good of the nation.

Vote for Bola Tinubu, protect your votes, insist the Electoral Act and INEC guidelines are followed, and, above all, ensure that the total number of votes cast is not more than the total number of accredited voters in your unit.

Let us make sure we, who have suffered so much at the hands of these people, are the ones that win this one, not just for Tinubu but ultimately for ourselves and for Nigeria.

I pity those still determined to keep our country detained in business as usual, even those insistent on truncating God’s will for this nation.

The water has already passed under the bridge – Asiwaju is the next President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria!

African names and titles are intrinsically contextual and deep in meaning.

“Asiwaju” means “the one who leads from the front” but it also means ” the pathfinder” or just simply, “leader”.

And, I just love this guy!

The Asiwaju,

Son of Tinubu,

Son of Abibat Mogaji,

True child of God who makes way for his younger ones to grow and get ahead in life;

The leader who makes sacrifices for his followers to become leaders;

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the senior who builds his juniors into seniors;

The City Boy who turns the village into a town, who turns the town into a city and turns the city into a megacity;

It is the will of God that you be our next President and the people of Nigeria are making you their next President this very Saturday!

– Jesutega Onokpasa, a lawyer and member, All Progressives Congress, APC Presidential Campaign Council, writes from Warri.
