Sen. Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, representing Niger-North Senatorial District, has described the APC Presidential Candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a courageous man who is the fittest to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
The senator urged the citizens to consider Tinubu’s performance when he was governor of Lagos State which he described as sterling and his contributions to the country’s democracy to vote for him en masse in the Feb. 25 presidential election.
Abdullahi, also the Deputy Chief Whip of the Senate, made the call at an interactive session with newsmen in Abuja on Sunday.
He said beyond Tinubu’s provision of quality infrastructure and other services, as Governor of Lagos State, he had been at the forefront of fights to restore democracy in Nigeria.
He said the presidential candidate had stood against attempts to emasculate the political space.
“He is a man who has a sense of accommodation, tolerance and he is somebody who believes that democracy is what we must promote for the common good.
“Beyond what he has done while in power, you need to also look at what he has done outside power to ensure that the democratic space continues to be expanded.
“I think he has done tremendously well,” the senator is quoted by the News Agency of Nigeria.
