The immediate past Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has endorsed the incumbent Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State for second term in office on the platform of Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN.
Presenting Fashola for second term in the presence of party members at a stakeholder meeting of ACN held at the party’s secretariat in Ikeja, Tinubu broke his long silence on the issue, saying the rumour of his estrangement with the governor was peddled by those he called, ”political rodents and enemies who did not know how I knew him.”
Tinubu who scored the governor 85 percent on his performance as the state governor in the past four years stressed that the governor remained the best man for the job of state governor.
His words: “He is my son .Those that were peddling the rumour are those that did not know how I knew him, what endeared him to me.
The agents of destruction, political rodents, enemies and scavengers in the corridors of power that want to continue to loot state funds without working to deliver dividends of democracy. They said I was jealous of his achievements and all sort of things. If you have a son that has surpassed your records you celebrate him. I am the pathfinder . He is the Navigator. I am the one that Identified the talent.”
