Bamigbade said:

“What matters is acceptability among Nigerians, and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu enjoys this among youths.
“You should not be distracted by the antics of a former president… You know in whose hand your future is better protected and secured.
“Do not be misled… Rather, let your eye be on the ball, towards taking a strategic action targeted at securing your future.
“APC has an enviable record … which President Muhammadu Buhari has entrenched, a legacy Tinubu will continue with.”
