- The All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, wants Nigeria presidency based on his entitlement mentality
- This is the position of former lawmaker, Senator Dino Melaye, while reacting to Festus Keyamo's interview
- Melaye alleged that Tinubu was contesting for the presidency not on basis of the greater good but to fulfill his lifetime ambition
In what many people will dismiss as political allegation, Dino Melaye has alleged that the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, sees the presidency as his “entitlement and retirement benefits”.
According to the former Kogi state lawmaker, Tinubu was contesting for the presidency not on basis of the greater good but to fulfill his “lifetime ambition”.
In a video shared on his Facebook page, the former lawmaker who was responding to the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, over his comment on Atiku in a TV interview recently, said, unlike Tinubu, the PDP’s candidate is contesting with rich credentials.
According to him, Atiku has the rudiments of civil administration and of politics.

“Atiku Abubakar is running for the presidency for the second or third time and he understands this route better than the political virg6n, Tinubu, that you (Keyamo) are supporting who is running for the presidency for the first time and sees it as his life entitlement and retirement benefits for supporting Buhari.
“Atiku has rich credentials and he is not running because of entitlements. He is not running because of his support for any party. He is running because he’s got the credentials and he is a team player. He is a talent hunter and leader per excellence.”
