“Tinubu is a detribalized Nigerian. His milestones in turning Lagos State to a cynosure of all eyes is a credit to his image. Entrust Nigeria in his hand and go to sleep. You will see wonder when you wake up”
Oba Akanbi further tasked those condemning Tinubu to assess his mental asset, saying governance has nothing to do with age.
He stated that most of those castigating Tinubu perhaps have personal issues with him while many are saying he is arrogant because he tells the truth.
He likened Tinubu to kings who are for al, asserting that Asiwaju always conduct himself as a Nigerian without ethnic or religious colouration.
The information was contained in a statement released by the monarch’s press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, which further reads thus:
“Tinubu is like a king. You don’t know where he belongs. He can go to Mosque, he can go to Church and can prefer traditional way of worship
” He is a Muslim. His wife and son, Seyi, are Christians.
“People may think he is arrogant because he tells the truth. Anybody who tells the truth is adjudged to be arrogant. People say I’m arrogant too. It is because I love and cherish the truth”
The statement goes further:
“Tinubu is not a tribalistic Nigerian. He is married from Itsekiri. His wife and son are Christians. Only Tinubu has better structure and image to unify Nigeria. He goes to Mosque, Church and identify with traditionalists.
“Age is not a barrier. It has nothing to do with wisdom. Donald Reagan was 76, he turned America around positively. Tinubu gave Lagos State the best taste of quality governance. His antecedents and sustanance of the truthful path make him relevant amongst his peers who were equally governors of different states in 1999.”
Concluding, Oba Akanbi said,
“Give Tinubu Nigeria to rule and go and sleep. He will do wonder before you wake”
