Opinion: Tinubu Has Good Credentials That Does Not Require The Endorsement Of Soyinka

According to a report by Punch, Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, has distanced himself from a viral post linking him to the endorsement of the presidential ambition of a former governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. The elder statesman in a statement on Wednesday titled, “Season of Fakery Galore,” described the authors of the post as illiterate public interlopers who lacked the courage of their conviction and must steal identities of their betters.

The truth is that Soyinka's endorsement has nothing to do with who becomes the President of Nigeria. Nigerians are now wise and are looking for a candidate that will develop the country. Tinubu might be the candidate or any other qualified Nigeria. However, Tinubu has declared his ambition to other candidates as well. But in the APC, the future is bright for the APC leader.

For 14 years, Tinubu was the only real thorn in the flesh of the PDP. The PDP was in power and wielded the instruments of coercion arbitrarily. Did they spare the worst enemy?No‼️ they hung corruption on everyone who eyeballed him. Tinubu isn't a Saint but he isn't the pampered sacred cow whose sins have been overlooked that people often talk about. If money is the answer, Dangote, BUA, Adenuga, Elumelu, Otedola will be the next President.

If grammar defines it, Soyinka will win unopposed. If it is religion, Adeboye or Sultan will assume the position. If it must be Music, Davido, Wizkid will zazu us all! If it is about law Afe and Olanipekun will be new Aso Rock landlords. If it is international menial jobs with big titles, Oby will be the first woman President. If Ecowas Court will define it, Falana is straight. But if it is about national structure, political sagacity, economic intelligence, administrative capacity, detribalisation, and consistency.
