Oyo Deputy Gov, Rauf Olaniyan Visits Tinubu in Abuja
Oyo-State Deputy Governor, Engr. AbdulRauf Remi Olaniyan on friday visited the All Progressives Congress APC Presidential Candidate Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu.
Olaniyan who recently returned to the APC fold after defecting from the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) PDP visited Tinubu in Abuja to congratulate him on his emergence as the party candidates.
Apart from Asiwaju Tinubu, Olaniyan was also welcomed by Lagos state governor Babajide Sanwo- Olu and Osun state, Gboyega Oyetola , Senator Ibikunle Amosun and others
The Igboho born Civil- Engineer and businessman described the emergence of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the solution needed by the party to build on the gains of the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration.
He noted that with the emergence of Tinubu, there is no gainsaying the point of his wide acceptability and long term commitment to the Progressive folds which is worthy of emulation.
He added that the lesson for all to learn was that Tinubu wanted the ticket, worked hard for it and it was given to him by God.
Olaniyan said ”I am happy with the victory of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. His emergence energizes my belief in hard work and tenacity. He wanted it and worked for it. That many notable aspirants stepped down for him showed that he is loved. His emergence will, in no small ways, assist our party in the next elections. I congratulate him.
”I also like to congratulate those who contested against him. They have done well. We should all salute them, especially Vice President Yemi Osinbajo. He is another equally qualified and sellable aspirant but only one person will get the ticket. He has done well by contesting. He has helped deepened democracy. All of us should unite for victory.
“I congratulate us all. We are poised for victory in the next general elections and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s emergence as our party’s candidate has helped strengthened that.”
