Former militant leader, Asari Dokubo has reiterated his support for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Speaking during an appearance on Channels Television on Friday morning, Dokubo said Tinubu is miles ahead of other presidential candidates in terms of competence and capacity.
The Niger Delta activist stated that he is backing the APC candidate for the 2023 presidency because of his achievements and legacy in Lagos State.
He added that the APC candidate was instrumental in the development of the South West state and helped turned the fortunes of the former Nigerian capital.
He said: “For the presidential election, I am with Tinubu because I saw what he did in Lagos State and the legacies he left behind.
“Lagos has transformed from what it used to be like a big ghetto, a junkyard to a global centre and one of the biggest economies in the whole of Africa. Somebody kickstarted it; somebody laid the foundation.
“Those claiming otherwise should also know that even in the biggest cities across the world, there are people who are not okay with the government.”
Dokubo said though the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party (LP), and the APC’s manifestoes are all great, the execution of the policies depends on their candidates.
He said despite the fact that Peter Obi and Rabiu Kwankwaso were former governors and have executive experience as Tinubu, the APC candidate is the best choice for the country in 2023.
The former militant, however, said former Vice President and PDP flagbearer, Atiku Abubakar, does not have such a credential as Tinubu
“Atiku has actually never actually handled executive power. He was a spare tire. He was a vice president,” he said.
