“Luckily for us, our job is cut out for us. We have the most saleable 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. We should not under-rate our opponents. We should work assiduously to make the margin of winning too wide that the victory will be massive and sweet.”
