I read with utter disgust on the social media about how some people condescended so low by attributing death remarks to someone who is not only alive but hale and hearty. Those who had been part of this fallacious, wicked, preposterous and ungodly assertions should seek the face of God in forgiveness.
For all those who believe in sanctity of life as well as others who are mentees, political associates and protégés of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, I make bold to say he is in good health, though temporarily out of the country but will be back to Nigeria where he is most preferred and wanted to serve as our national leader and mentor. He truly is a great political colossus emboldened with vision, capacity, clear-mind, integrity and purpose no wonder he has army of supporters who always wish him well.
While this unfortunate rumour became rife, Mr Tunde Rahman, the media aide to our leader gave very reliable, precise and concise information about Asiwaju by dispelling the erroneous and misleading reports about him, he was very timely and apt in his details and I think he should be commended for doing a very great job which he is often known for. I must also extend my message of goodwill to Senator Oluremi Tinubu, wife of our leader and the entire Tinubu dynasty for their courage all the way, and for showing love and prayers for our national leader, Asiwaju.
While the record has been properly set straight, however everyone should bear in mind that death is an irrevocable end of all creation, and it will surely come to everyone some day and at the appointed time and hour, but to deliberately spread fake news and wish someone dead, is to take humanity to another bizarre, shameful and preposterous level.
Those dragging politics to this despicable end need to desist from it because it is very clear that whom God has blessed no one can curse; Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is one of such special and favoured individuals through the grace of God.
Meanwhile, for us at the Southwest Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA) 2023 which I am proud to be part of, we take this fake news as a mere distraction occasioned by some paid hatchet men, but the bad news for them is that this will never deter us from throwing our weight behind BAT because he is most qualified to take the baton of political leadership in Nigeria should he run for the position of President in 2023.
For the umpteenth time, the position of SWAGA is clear as we are confident to say Asiwaju will be fair to all as Nigeria’s president. He has been fair to all nationalities in Lagos State. He gave them positions based on capability and competence. He will not be president of Yoruba, but the president of Nigeria working for the interest of all Nigerians.
Without contradiction Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will unify the country and continue on the developmental path being laid by the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari because he has done this before in Lagos where he ruled as an unbiased and detribalized umpire.
I wish him best of luck and good health, I also wish him journey mercy back to Nigeria and equally pray that he will meet us in sound health too.
