Speaker, House of Representatives, Rt.Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, has lauded presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC0, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as the greatest politician in modern Nigeria.
Taking his turn to speak during the party’s presidential campaign rally in Lagos today, Gbajabiamila also queried those doubting Tinubu’s age to go and ask his late mother, AlhajaAbibatu Mogaji, to reconfirm.
While the APC presidential candidate said he is 70 years old, his opponents believe he is using a political age.
Gbajabiamila dwelt on Tinubu’s leadership qualities, stressing that he is modern Nigeria’s greatest politician.
On the age matter, the Speaker urged supporters: ‘They will ask you how old he is. Tell them he is the age his mother said he is. And if they are in doubt of his age, tell them to go and meet his mother to reconfirm.
“If they say he’s not educated, tell them he is more educated than all the contestants put together.
“If they tell you he is wanted in America. America has said repeatedly they do not know what they are talking about. When they said he is corrupt, tell them he is the most investigated in Nigeria’s history and nothing has been found against him.”
Tinubu’s mother, who was the Iyaloja General of Nigeria, died in June 2013.
