Brain, not strength needed to be Nigerian president – Tinubu answers critics

Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has told critics of his health status that he needs his brain, not strength, to take Nigeria to greater heights.

The former Lagos State Governor has declared his ambition to be Nigeria’s president after President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

Tinubu spoke at the palace of Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Oyetunji, when he visited the monarch, as he continues to visit royal fathers in Osun state to seek their blessings for his presidential ambition.

“I have the brain and the capacity. If you hear them saying, he is sick, I didn’t apply for the job of race running. I didn’t apply for the job of bricklaying. I went to school to study Accountancy and Management.

“I didn’t apply for a job of a gravedigger. I have applied for a job of brain and intelligence, focus thinking. The job I want to do for Nigeria is for Nigeria to be greater and be proud of itself, our children, and we leave a legacy of success, unlimited success for our great, great children,” he said.

“I don’t care whether you are Igbo, Hausa, Yoruba, Ida, Ijaw or whoever you are, God has blessed us. He blessed us with humans and materials. The only thing that He is ready to streamline for us and we are ready to streamline it, is character.

“We must build that character of strong determination, the character of selflessness, the character of resiliency, the character of perseverance in which we must see ourselves as one entity that will build prosperity for all Nigerians. This is my promise,” Tinubu added.

In his remarks, Oba Oyetunji, warned those spreading insinuations about Tinubu’s health, assuring him of his support.
