Former House Deputy Chairman on Human Rights in the 7th Assembly, Hon Rotimi Makinde has again intensified his plea to make the National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to join the 2023 presidential race.
Makinde who represented Ife Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives between 2011 to 2015, while hosting some media executives and online publishers in Lagos said the legacies, principles, sacrifices and ideologies of Asiwaju Tinubu clearly showcased him as a national leader, who was a rallying point for progressives in the country.
It would be recalled that Makinde had earlier hosted some press men few days ago but still making similar call on Saturday to drive home his clarion call for Asiwaju to contest in 2023, a man he believes is the best and most qualified for the top job in the country.
The outspoken and very fearless politician is calling on the two-time Governor of Lagos State to use his experience in fostering unity, peace and progress in the country and contest for the position of president in the 2023 general election.
“For over two decades our leader and mentor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has been a vanguard of true federalism, pillar of hope and national integration even as he pays attention to the development of our dear nation without bias or prejudice, that is the kind of leader we desire and deserve at a time like this.
“With no shred of doubt Asiwaju is a trailblazer, pacesetter, a mentor, nation builder, a unifier and de-tribalised politician who wants the best for Nigeria,” he said.
Hon Makinde who has history of showing commitment to any course he believes added that if Asiwaju Tinubu joins the presidential race it will enable him [Asiwaju] to consolidate what President Muhammadu Buhari has done and is still doing in Nigeria.
