Tinubu Above Other Presidential Candidates – Gbenga Daniel

Tinubu Above Other Presidential Candidates, Says Daniel

Former Ogun Governor Otunba Gbenga Daniel has ranked the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu above other candidates for the 2023 presidential poll.

Daniel stated that Tinubu will improve the nation’s economy and guarantee local government autonomy if elected.

He added Tinubu showed readiness to devolve more powers to the third tier of government during his time as Lagos governor.

“I look at Asiwaju as somebody who is clear in what he wants to do as far as the economy is concerned. And a number of the decisions he has taken, when you take a deeper look, you will know he knows what he’s doing,” Daniel said.

“So, when it comes to local government administration, if there is anybody who has shown determination to empower local governments, Tinubu ruggedness towers above others.”

Daniel spoke during an interactive session at a two-day leadership capacity development programme for Councillors in Ogun East Senatorial District in Ijebu-Ode on  Thursday.

He recalled how Tinubu as Lagos Governor fought for local government autonomy and stood his ground in the face of the then Federal Government.

He also harped on restructuring to enable the country to overcome most of its socio-political and economic challenges.

The APC Senatorial candidate for Ogun East advised the party and its members to work hard to achieve success for the ruling party in the 2023 general elections.
