2023: Tinubu Most Sellable Candidate- Ribadu

Pioneer Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Nuhu Ribadu, has said that the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is the most sellable of those vying for the presidency in the 2023 elections.

Ribadu, who doubles as the Director of Stakeholder Relations for the Presidential Campaign Council, stated this at the official inauguration of the 132-member directorate of the APC PCC.

This was as he warned the party not to underrate the candidates of other political parties ahead of the 2023 elections.

Ribadu expressed optimism that the February 25 poll would be a walkover for the former Lagos State Governor.

The inauguration ceremony, which took place at the PCC campaign office in Abuja, was officiated by former Osun State Governor and APC founding national chairman, Chief Bisi Akande.

While stating that Tinubu would sweep the presidential election going by the level of grassroots work done so far, the former anti-corruption agency boss also cautioned that no candidate should be taken for granted.

He said, “We should not underrate our opponents. We should work assiduously to make the margin of winning too wide that the victory will be massive and sweet.

Luckily for us, our job is cut out for us. We have the most sellable product in the market today. There is no one candidate out there that is better than our own.

Asiwaju Tinubu is an accomplished human being and a thorough bred administrator and maverick politician. He has something to show from his glowing antecedent, he will not learn on the job.

He also has a wide network of friends and associates everywhere in Nigeria, which makes our job of outreach very much easier. Though this election is literally a walk over for us, we should not leave anything to chances.”

While charging the 132 members of the directorate to work harmoniously as one family in an atmosphere of cordiality, Ribadu explained that they were drawn from various field of human endeavours.

Ribadu added that he had no doubt that the directorate would deliver the goods ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

“To ease operation, we have decided to divide the operations of the directorate into North and South. This is done to ensure that our work is targeted and thorough.

“We are also adopting a bottom-up and up-bottom approaches simultaneously through the creation of thematic area units and leadership at zonal and state levels.

“The work will be guided with clear terms of reference to guide our operations and assigned tasks. Immediately after this formal event, we will discuss in detail and provide you with the necessary guidance to hit the ground running.”

Midway through the programme, Akande disclosed that he was impressed with the composition of the new directorate.

He also believed they would continue with the victory of the ruling party from where they stopped in May 29, 2015.

This is even as he expressed confidence that Tinubu has what it takes to administer the country despite the aversion of some Nigerians to the party’s Muslim-Muslim ticket.
