2023: Tinubu, APC will win presidential election – Gbajabiamila boasts

The House of Representatives Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, has congratulated Bola Tinubu.

The former Lagos State Governor clinched the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential ticket on Wednesday.

In a statement, the lawmaker said he was elated that his political mentor won the APC primary.

He described the victory as well-deserved, considering Tinubu’s “years of working for the entrenchment of democracy in Nigeria”.

Gbajabiamila said the APC stood a good chance of retaining power in 2023.

The Speaker described Tinubu as a dogged fighter who stood his ground to compete the primary in a democratic manner.

“I congratulate my mentor for this victory. This is a victory for democracy and Nigerians as a whole.

“He stood his ground that the APC must organise a free, fair and transparent presidential primary if it wanted to remain the party to beat.”

Gbajabiamila hailed the APC leader for his doggedness, determination, resilience and tenacity.

“This is a victory for APC, a victory for its members and indeed a victory for Nigeria and its democracy,” he added.
