Many Nigerians have been wondering the reasons behind the rise and rise of the Presidential Candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the country’s political space and beyond the shores of Nigeria.
A staunch loyalist of Tinubu, who is also a chieftain of the APC in Lagos State, Prince Hammed Olanrewaju Mohammed, who is popularly known as Prince H.O. Mohammed, told Independent News Express early on Monday that Asiwaju is an enigma of our times, adding that he was specially endowed with some uncommon human qualities by God.
Prince H.O. Mohammed, the Director of Contact and Mobilisation of Indomitable Tinubu Support Group (ITSO) disclosed that the former Governor of Lagos State possessed three rare qualities that made him stand out among politicians of this era.
“If you study Asiwaju very well, you will easily notice these qualities. Firstly, he is somebody that will respect you whether you are good or bad. He will never take anybody for granted. He always looks for the positives in the people around him. He believes that nobody is perfect, hence the need to tap in the areas of strength of people around him. That is the reason we see him as builder of men.
“Secondly, Asiwaju is a cheerful giver. He had affected and he continues to affect people whether far or near. He has empowered a lot of people. I was not surprised at the landslide victory he recorded in the last Presidential Primary of the APC. He garnered votes across the geopolitical zones of the country. This shows that he is accepted countrywide.
“The third quality that makes Tinubu an exceptional human being is that he forgives easily. This is what God wants from us to forgive those who offend us wholeheartedly. There are good numbers of those who, one way or the others, have betrayed Asiwaju, but he overlooked whatever they might have done and took them as associates and friends today. Look at what happened after the primary, he extended hands of fellowship to all the co-contestants. He accepted everyone with open hands. He bears no grudges with anybody. He believes that in politics we should make more friends than enemies,” Prince H.O. Mohammed said.
The former Senatorial Youth Leader of Lagos Central Senatorial District noted that Tinubu possesses the qualities to rule Nigeria, even as he called on Nigerians not to miss the golden opportunity that the candidacy of Tinubu of the APC presents before them in the forthcoming general elections next year.
“A leader with these qualities I mentioned above is a God-sent. That is why I do tell people that we must be very careful when discussing anything negative about Tinubu because God made him for this our times. God is always with him,” Mohammed said.
