The senator representing Nasarawa South, Tanko Umaru Al-Makura, has said that no other 2023 presidential candidate matches the flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in terms of competence.

Al-Makura, who is a former Governor of Nasarawa, compared Tinubu to Nigeria’s founding founders, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Obafemi Awolowo and Sir Ahmadu Bello.

“You cannot find any of them that can come close to the combination of Tinubu and Shettima.

“Take them one by one and compare with any of the two pairs in other parties, you won’t go far before you realise that it is not a contest.

“Take Tinubu and what he has done in Lagos State and the country physically, politically, socially, culturally and economically, I do not see any presidential candidate that can match his competence, achievements and vision.

“In the course of trying to defend Nigeria’s democracy, Tinubu had to flee the country. Tinubu and others stood their ground to ensure democracy was rooted in the country.

“How many brave Nigerians could do what Tinubu has done to this country way back in 1993? He sacrificed his time and comfort for the sake of democracy.

“For that alone, he has no equal among the presidential candidates. Take infrastructural development and transformation of Lagos.

“Look at the way he mentored people. I call him mentor of mentors. You can liken Tinubu to our leaders of the First Republic. The Sardaunas, Akintolas, the Awolowos, the Azikiwes, who made people what they were at that time.

“This to me, is a leader that is cut in their image. Talk about any prominent Nigerian. Get a number of prominent Nigerians that have excelled and attained certain very enviable positions, you find substantial number of them were mentored by Tinubu. Examples are all over the place to see,” Al-Makura told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
