Setonji David, a Lagos attorney, has advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) to adopt Tinubu as consensus candidate.
Mr David, chairman of the Lagos House of Assembly Committee on Information, Publicity, Strategy and Security made this known to the public on Tuesday.
“We should all concede to Asiwaju to be President. I plead with my party leaders to concede the presidency ticket of APC to Tinubu. If we go to the field for primaries, I plead with delegates that we all vote for Tinubu,” he explained. “Obviously, Tinubu has the solution to some of the challenges facing this nation.”
Mr David, who represented the Badagry Constituency II at the meeting, said the APC national leader was capable of ruling the country, having been governor for eight years.
“He has done a lot in Lagos state as a former governor and this is quite visible to everybody to see and that is why we are praying that if given the opportunity, he will replicate it at the federal level,” added the lawmaker.
Mr David insists Mr Tinubu, who revived Lagos’ economy during his tenure, could restructure the country’s economy.
