A House of Representatives Member, Femi Bamisile, has expressed optimism that the National Leader and presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will beat a former Vice President and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, at the 2023 polls.
Bamisile, who represents Gbonyin/Ekiti East/Emure Federal Constituency, also predicted a landslide victory for the APC in the June 18, governorship poll in Ekiti State.
Bamisile spoke in Omuo Ekiti in Ekiti East LGA at the weekend while distributing cars, motorbikes, dryers and other materials worth over N300m to his constituents.
The lawmaker said the way Tinubu scaled hurdles to emerge as the presidential candidate of APC confirmed his deftness in politics, noting that PDP couldn’t stop the former Lagos governor from realising his ambition.
He added that Tinubu had all the requisite qualities to be president and was upbeat that Nigerians would vote for him.
He said, “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a well-loved political leader, and this he earned because of the good governance he succeeded in entrenching in Lagos State. So, I see him winning the 2023 presidential poll.
“He has all it takes. He has the experience, network of connections, good friends and popularity to triumph over Atiku Abubakar of the PDP. Though I am not saying the former VP is not strong, Tinubu is stronger and more popular.
“The fact that he laid a foundation for Lagos’ development will bolster his chances among Nigerians.”
