Share This


The founder of Rilwan Adesoji Akanbi Foundation RAAF, Senator Adesoji Akanbi has warned some political elements feeling threatened by the person of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to stop weaving sentiments about his age.

Senator Akanbi argued that antecedent and capacity should be the yard stick to measure an aspirant’s suitability for the 2023 presidential seat.

He said, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was the first to expand the frontier of governance by creating more local Government ( LCDA) and other states later emulated.

He suggested that the youth population should rather vote for a presidential candidate with evidence of quality service delivery, Sen Soji Akanbi made this known at symposium organised by Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ.

“It’s not a matter of being young; it’s a matter of marketing a product. We are talking about empirical evidences, what he has done in the past and presently doing,” he said.

The Senator also noted that Tinubu has demonstrated over the years, that he is a leader who spots and utilises human talents to achieve results.

He said, “the team of a government determines the mind of the leader. Let me give you an example, when Bola Tinubu was governor of Lagos State, his team members were quite young. He is a talent hunter, he looks for younger people who have quality and what it takes, brushes them up and makes them take the mantle of the leadership of the country.

“At the moment, look at Tinubu’s (Governorship) Commissioner’s list in the present federal government and look at the role they are even playing – that is even a pointer to convince the youths to support Tinubu. There were many older people around in Lagos, but he chose to take the risk on the youth, look at the result. See Tinubu as a captain of a team.”

Senator Akanbi, who is the Vice National Chairman of the South West Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA) 2023, also happened to o be a member of PCC ( Committee on Election Planning and Monitoring), He is also chairman strategic and policy committee of Tinubu/Shettima grassroots movement (ICC), also recalled that as Governor, Tinubu, with the support of his cabinet, ran Lagos state successfully for several years when the Olusegun Obasanjo-led federal government ceased the state’s monthly federal allocation.
