The spokesman of the Tinubu Campaign Organisation, Bayo Onanuga, has said presidential hopeful, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is not intimidated by the northern aspirants in the 2023 presidential race.
Northern aspirants contesting for the 2023 presidency under the All Progressives Congress (APC) include Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, Governor Mohammed Badaru of Jigawa State, and Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi among others.
The former Managing Director of the News Agency of Nigeria said Tinubu is not threatened by the presidential aspiration of the northern aspirant because he is a leader to other aspirants.
In an interview with The Punch, Onanuga added that Tinubu is a political strategist and a tactician who knows the game of politics very well, adding that he has a high acceptability rate.
He said: “Tinubu is not at all threatened in anyway. He came out in January and even before he came out, we saw a massive campaign in his favour from the time (President Muhammadu) Buhari began his second term. People had been working for him and selling him all over the country.
“So many groups had been selling his candidacy while others just started. If a man has been so long in the field, he cannot be defeated so easily. This is why we are so confident that Tinubu will win on the 31st of May on the convention ground.
Tinubu is not in any way afraid of them. How can a leader be afraid of the people he has led for many years? Osinbajo and Tinubu will still be in the same camp after this convention is done.
“This is a game of politics. Osinbajo wants to try his luck; he will know his fate on May 31 whether he can beat a man who is a political strategist and a tactician far ahead of him.
“Nigeria needs a visionary at this time, someone who thinks out of the box to proffer solutions.”
