“Nigerians Need Tinubu More Than He Needs Nigerians” – APC Campaign Council

Alh Lanre Onilu, the deputy director of media and publicity for the Tinubu-Shettima presidential campaign team, has asked the public to massively vote for his principal in the general election of 2023, claiming that Nigerians need Asiwaju Bola Tinubu more than Tinubu needs Nigerians.

He also denied that Asiwaju Tinubu has been avoiding campaigning with the performances of the current administration of President Buhari, but rather referencing his administration as governor of Lagos State, insisting that the current administration had performed well.

Onilu spoke with journalists on Wednesday in Igbaja, Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara state during the empowerment programme organised by SSA on Community Intervention to Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, Kayode Oyin Zubair.

He said: “The country as at now actually needs Tinubu more than Asiwaju needs Nigerians and that is reflected in the kind of support that we are receiving in all the states we have visited.”

On why Asiwaju Tinubu hasn’t been campaigning with President Buhari’s administration, he said,” Asiwaju is not running away from it. I have said that several times.

“Buhari has spent seven and half years and I make bold to say, boldly here, that he has done very well.

“Forget about whatever anybody is saying, this President Muhammadu Buhari has performed and we are proud to say it and we are going to build on the successes of this particular government.

“Asiwaju will do that and he will correct wherever there is mistake. Buhari is human being after all, there will be mistakes.

“But wherever there are mistakes, he will correct it. To say he is running away from success; do people run away from success? No.”
