Doyin Okupe Likens Tinubu To Jesus Christ, Sent Himself To Find Solution


Doyin Okupe, former director-general (DG) of the Labour Party (LP) presidential campaign in the 2023 election, has said “no administration in Nigeria has ever beaten the bullets that President Bola Tinubu beat”.

Speaking in a recent interview on Channels Television’s ‘Political Paradigm’, Okupe said for the past 20 years in Africa’s most populous nation, “everybody has been dodging the bullet”.

He, therefore, likened Tinubu, the 16th and current president of Nigeria, to Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

His words: “If he (Tinubu) did not announce it (the fuel subsidy removal), he would never have been able to do it. And he would have been forced by the media, labour, opposition, students, all sorts of people (not to) , with the fear of the hardship and the pain we are going to through and all that, he would never have been able to do it.”

Okupe continued: “In heaven, when God said who is going to go for us? That is somebody has to come and be crucified for the world. And Jesus Christ said ‘send me’. That’s what Bola Tinubu has done. He has sent himself into this doldrum, into this financial and economic disaster that was on ground before he came. He is just trying to find a way out.”
