The speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has said that the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, “eats, drinks, walks and sleeps politics.”
Legit.ng gathered that the speaker said although many people owe their success to God, Tinubu was used as a vessel.
“Today is Asiwaju’s day, it’s about him and it’s about Nigeria. I make bold to say, many of us, me inclusive, owe our personal successes to God, but I know and recognize that God did not come down. He used Asiwaju as a vessel."
The Nation reports that Gbajabiamila said Tinubu has the ability to identify talents while describing him as a gift from God.
He declared that he owes his successes in politics to the unparalleled capacity of the APC Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to identify, spotlight and zero in on talents.
The speaker said:
“Asiwaju is known for his uncanny and unparalleled ability and capacity to identify, spotlight and zero in on talents. He’s done that with me; he’s done that with so many others, that is a mark of leadership.
“There are so many superlative words that have been used to describe Asiwaju today, so I am not going to bore you and be repetitive.
