I Was Almost Fed Up In The Battle To Secure An APC Ticket, But Prayer Helped Me, Says Tinubu

APC 2023 Presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has credited “prayers” for helping him secure the party’s ticket when he was being frustrated.

On Sunday, June 19 after paying a visit to the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu to seek royal blessing, Tinubu said he had to resort to prayer and that he poured out his mind when he felt they ‘gang up against him.

 “There is no Lagos indigene that has had the opportunity to become President of Nigeria, despite the contribution of the State to the national stability and progress.” he was quoted as saying in a statement by Mr. Gboyega Akosile, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State.

“The highest position attained by any Lagosian in national leadership is the position of Chief Judge of the Federation. I took up the fight to break this jinx. The battle to secure the APC ticket was hard. When I was almost fed up, I resorted to prayers. I also poured out my mind when I felt there was a gang up against my person. Thank God that I have brought home the presidential ticket,”

“We need to take this message to our people across communities and sensitize them on the need to vote in the general elections,” he said.

Akiolu, who described Tinubu as his “stubborn son”, said it was time for political leaders in the Southwest region to work for the victory of Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election.

“Your emergence as the presidential candidate of your party is the beginning of another journey in your political career. All Yoruba ancestors shall be with you on this journey to make our fatherland a better place,” Monarch said.
