Tinubu gets accolades  – VELOXNEWS


From Fred Itua, Abuja

A group, Asiwaju-Shettima Connect, has lauded the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu, over his remarks on Nigerian youths and their exploits in the world.

The commendation followed a video made by Tinubu to commemorate the International Youth Day 2022, tagged “Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Age”, in which the former Lagos State governor said that many Nigerian artistes, including Burna boy, Tiwa Savage, Davido, Wizkid, and Tems, “rule the world” with their musical talents.

The APC presidential candidate had also in the video lauded Nigerian Commonwealth heroes, Tobi Amusan, Ese Brume and others for their sterling performances at the just-concluded games which saw Nigeria clinching the 7th in global ranking and 1st in Africa.

In a statement signed by its national convener, Mr. Adebanjo Moyosore, the group said Tinubu’s recognition of the value and importance of Nigeria youths to the society is a testament to the fact he will give young Nigerians the tools to take up the baton as leaders in politics and business in his administration.

Adebanjo said since after Tinubu left office as governor of Lagos State, “he has remained a mentor who has over these year mentored the best managers in politics and business; the single most important thing any true leader can do to help prepare the next generation of leadership to take up the baton, and to take their own crack at changing the fortune of their country.”

“There are huge public policy problems that are yet to be addressed to allow the youths of this country express themselves and most of these challenges we face in country today, from insecurity to poverty, high cost of living and unemployment would not be solved until someone like Tinubu who has the foresight and love for the youths of this country comes in.

“We have seen what he has turned Lagos into in twenty years. Lagos today has become the third largest economy in Africa because of Tinubu master plan to build a mega city, something he can do better if given the opportunity to lead the country,” he added.
