Ahead of the 2023 general elections, some close allies of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu are beginning to open up about the kind of politician and leader he truly is.
One of such persons is a former governor of Lagos state and the current minister of works and housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola.
In a series of remarks posted on Facebook by Joe Igbokwe on Sunday, December 4, Fashola revealed that strangely, the biggest weapon of the All Progressives Congress (APC)'s candidate is his looks.
According to the post, the minister said Tinubu wears a sort of face that gives him away as unintelligent but added that this very quality is Jagaban's big asset because his opposers rely on it and take him for granted.
Fashola explained that while Tinubu's detractors underrate him due to his looks, they find out when it is late that they have been outwitted by a smart and astute thinker.
"I have never told him this before, but I think his looks are perhaps his biggest weapon. He wears a placid face that masks his intellect and quick thinking and probing mind.
"By the time I started working for him, I realized how much advantage his looks gave him against his adversaries.

"It was always tempting to underestimate him but many of his opponents have found out often too late that they have been outwitted by a man of razor-sharp mind and quick wit."
