Tinubu: Presidency Requires Smartness, Not Fitness by Warlord12(m): 6:11pm On May 13
A presidential aspirant under the All Progressive Congress, Bola Tinubu has stated that qualifying to be president of Nigeria doesn’t require strength but intelligence and smartness to overcome the numerous problems bedevilling the country.

Tinubu stated this when he met with delegates of the APC ahead of the party primaries in Minna on Friday.

He said, “A President’s job is not to climb mountains, wrestle or carry concrete. It is to think and perform with his brain.

“We are not looking for WWE wrestling fighter. We are looking for a thinker to provide security for us.

“We are looking for a doer who will look at economic opportunities and turn it around to prosperity.”

He also stated that he knows what he is contesting for and what is required to become a president in a country like Nigeria, adding that he has a track record of transforming Lagos state which he intends to replicate in Nigeria.

“I know the road to prosperity, safety, clean environment, development of our nation and infrastructure because I have done it all in Lagos state and I can do it again,” the former Lagos State governor said.

He urged delegates to choose someone who has made other people who they are in Nigeria.

“Where is their track records? How many Councillors, local government Chairmen and chairperson, members of house of Assemblies, House of Representatives or Senators have they produced? I have produced them,” Tinubu boasted.

He also wondered why there were many people contesting for the presidential ticket of the APC adding that he wonders where they are running to.

Tinubu said, “Too many people running, running, running where are they running to? Some of them are running to sokoto, some to Suleja while some are running to Kontagora but am running for the Presidency of Nigeria.I don’t know where the others are running to.”

Okay...


None of the great presidents of the United States, the home of WWE, was a wrestler nor had any the fitness of Cena, Reggie, Otis or Rey Mysterio. To add, no one has ever demanded the WWE-esque fitness in any aspirant, there in the US, here in Nigeria or anywhere else.

All that well-meaning Nigerians, who truly are tired of the government you foisted on them, and who would for once, overlook ethnicity or religion to vote for progress; all that they're asking is a competent hand motivated by genuine spirit of service. And of course, healthy enough to do this service.

Those you do not have, but in place of thirst for service, your thrust has always been that you have to actualize your life-long ambition. And you can fight dirty for that too.

We have suffered enough under a London-visiting president, we can't deal with a diaper-wearing one.

Tinibu is sick. The northerners want him to succeed Buhari so that what happend to Ya'ardua will happen to him. Jagaban will die in office if elected, giving way for the VP, who will be from the north to succeed him as president. North will then continue ruling. Just imagine what will happen to our country. Pleasesay no to Tinibu's presidency!

Tinubu is the man for the job

But on a serious note, I don't know what Tinubu bought from all these okoros omo yeebos that he did not pay, that they are always Wailing and insulting him without a specific reason undecided this is unfair we run a democratic system in this country and he has every right to contest!

The top American Presidents are not physically the fittest, however, under their regime, America became the largest economy and the number one super power in the world. Today, American people never regretted giving a chance to the likes of Abraham Lincoln, Frankling Roosevelt despite their physical limitations. Tinubu might not be the fittest among the aspirants but he is as fit as a fiddle both mentally and physically.
