Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the House of Representatives, has said the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is shoulder above his rivals because of his track records.
Gbajabiamila recalled Tinubu’s achievements, saying that none of the other contestants who have had stints in governance can boast of such achievements.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, Gbajabiamila spoke during a meeting with leaders of Community Development Associations (CDAs) in Surulere, Lagos State on Tuesday.
The Speaker said Nigerians should vote for Tinubu because he is the only candidate that has something to show for what he did in the past.
“Today, they say there are four, three or four front-runner presidential candidates. There was something that I used to say many years ago.
“All the front runners have records; Asiwaju has a record of eight years as governor; Peter Obi has a record of eight years as governor in Anambra; Atiku has a record as Vice President for eight years.
“When you put their records side by side: there is no competition whatsoever. Asiwaju stands tall shoulders above everybody.
“In his (Tinubu’s) case, Lagos is not even like a state; Lagos is like a country in terms of population, in terms of density, in terms of different people in the state and look at what he has been able to do,” he said.
The Speaker said party faithful will persuade voters with Tinubu’s track record.
“This election is the one that we must campaign based on persuasion, for us to go out there and talk to those who are still sitting on the fence, who are persuaded based on religion, or ethnicity.
“Let them be persuaded by records, that is what I want from you.”
