Tinubu will use ‘magic wand’ to fix Nigeria’s problems if elected: Sanwo-Olu


Governor Babatunde Sanwo-Olu on Friday said Bola Tinubu has a ‘magic wand’ that he will summon to resolve all issues ailing Nigeria, saying the masses should give him a chance to be president next year. 

“This, indeed, is the time to pay him back with our unwavering support. He is, no doubt, the right and best man for the job,” Mr Sanwo-Olu said. “He knows the issues plaguing our nation like the back of his hands and he has the magic wand to fix it.”

The governor’s comments came when he attended the 17th parley between the executive and the legislature in Lagos on Friday afternoon, rallying lawmakers to pay back Mr Tinubu at the ballot box.
“So, because of our Apex leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, it is time for us to take Lagos to Nigeria agenda. It is time for us to work assiduously and ensure that all of these successes in Lagos can be reflected in Nigeria as a whole.

“That is why I am calling on all of us to ensure that we do everything we can do politically and otherwise, to ensure that we can help to activate and actualise the next president of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“Let us rally behind our great party, the All Progressives Congress, let us rally behind the great man, that indeed, we believe can help us take our country to the next level,” he said,” he added.

The governor’s call came as Mr Tinubu ramped up his campaign to obtain the ruling APC’s presidential ticket later this year. 

Despite showing signs of health complications, Mr Tinubu has insisted that he is in the right frame of mind to lead Nigeria, a country of over 200 million with myriad challenges ranging from acute unemployment to insecurity.
