Tinubu’s victory in 2023 will be landslide – APC chieftain



Jimoh Babafemi, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), has said the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu will record a landslide victory in the 2023 election.

Babafemi made the statement while having a chat with pressmen over the weekend in Lagos, adding that he came to the conclusion judging by Tinubu’s accomplishments and leadership capacity.

He said the support being enjoyed by the ruling party was a pointer to its victory in the general election next year.

The chieftain said; “Tinubu has built an empire out of many Nigerians who crossed paths with him ever since his foray into public office and these accomplishments would count for him in 2023.

“He has paid his dues as a democrat and leader. Tinubu is running against Tinubu because these Nigerians and many others who believe in his vision for a better Nigeria, are today mostly his foot soldiers, campaigning for him across the federation”.

Babafemi also expressed his displeasure over the attitudes of some party chieftains who he said are still not happy with Tinubu’s emergence at the presidential primary and commended Lawan and the group for their efforts in campaigning and mobilising for Tinubu.

He added;“They are working hard for Tinubu and the APC like they are doing it for Lawan. These people are patriotic chieftains of the APC. Others have suddenly gone cold after losing the primary. They are non-committal to the presidential ambition of Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“The current Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, on national television even refused to openly endorse Tinubu. We have not heard from Amaechi’s people, Osinbajo’s team and so many others.

“They suddenly went cold without doing much. I sincerely commend distinguished Senator Ahmad Lawan and his group for showing and proving to be solid party chieftains by spearheading the campaign of Bola Ahmed Tinubu across Nigeria”.
