Bola Ahmed Tinubu is one of the few politicians in Nigeria who has produced several political leaders. He is known to influence several young politicians to rise to the peak of the ladder of their political career. Evidence abounds throughout the country, from the north to south, east to west.
The current Lagos State governor Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu owes his rise to stardom to the former Lagos State governor. Bola Ahmed Tinubu stood solidly behind Sanwo-Olu to ensure that the APC candidate emerge. Not only that it was Tinubu who brought former governor Akinwumi Ambode to limelight.
Outside Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, who has also been leading the All Progresives Congress (APC), has done a lot for many aspiring politicians to grow. He has been instrumental in Osun State and Ogun State. Even though he didn’t anoint Rotimi Akeredolu, the former Lagos State governor still stood up for Akeredolu in Ondo State.
Now that the country will soon go for a round of voting, Bola Tinubu should consider Mr. Sunday Dare for the ticket of the All Progresives Congress (APC) in Oyo State. Tinubu should think deeply and check some distinctive qualities of Sunday Dare, which make him quite unique.
Sunday Dare is currently a minister under President Muhammadu Buhari. He heads the ministry of youths and sports and since he has taken over the affairs of the ministry, there has been no scandal or saga linked to him. He has stood upright and ensured that the APC administration is well represented.
Mr. Sunday Dare was the chief of staff to Tinubu when the national leader of the APC was the Lagos State governor. He was trusted at that time and even till now. If the minister wasn’t trusted, he wouldn’t be nominated to become a minister. Hence, it can be said that Sunday Dare will be a good symbol of the APC in 2023.
In 2019 the APC presented Mr. Adebayo Adelabu. The former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) was not really strong politically because he even joined the race for the APC ticket very late. Actually, Mr. Adelabu had not come out to say that he would be contesting for the APC ticket again. But if he does later, Bola Tinubu should pay his attention on Sunday Dare.
