Former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressive Congress, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu has been described as the leader, architect and pathfinder of the emerging new Nigeria.
Besides Asiwaju are great fighters such the Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, Governor Raji Fashola of Lagos State, former Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbeshola of the State of Osun amoong others.
A statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Mr. John Mayaki while congratulating the President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari for the hard won victory, said, “the likes of former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole of Edo State, among others too innumerable to mention should be congratulated and encouraged for leading a most ferocious battle against a most desperate Federal Government under President Goodluck Jonathan.
I must also thank Nigerians for being resolute and united in speaking with one voice that all was not lost despite the intimidating anti-democratic postures and actions of the Goodluck Jonathan led Federal Government.
Mayaki particularly desccribed Governor Oshiomhole as a steadfast, courageous pathfinder and a democrat who has provided leadership to the people of the State leading into the mainstream All Progressive Congress (APC) led Federal Government.
He called on those who left the party and the Governor halfway into the promised land to consider returning home and to the mainstream as our political torchbearer and pathfinder has led us to the promised land.
According to Mayaki, “We made it to the other side; the promise land, after the PDP captivity and the turbulent and fearful crossing (transition) of the sea to the other side of victory and promised-land for Nigerians.”
“It is not easy to be in opposition”, Mayaki observed. Continuing, he said, “Comrade Oshiomhole has again proved his onion. He is never intimidated or cowed. He is very courageous and at his best when intimidated. He was steadfast and focused throughout. Today, Edo State is one of the league of states in the opposition party who dethroned a corrupt ridden federal government and voted a mainstream federal government that would be installed on May 29.
“Oshiomhole, from a disadvantaged position in the now defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, fought with other democrats to rescue Edo State from the grip of the PDP, who almost sniffed life out of the state.
“Today, Oshiomhole leading Edo Statae, is a major player among those who fought this battle using the ballot to dethrone a most confused and reckless federal government.
“I want to appreciate those who have joined him from other parties and encourage others who are yet to embrace or catch the joy of liberation with the Governor to do so in the interest of the state and the country”.
“It is a matter of leadership. Oshiomhole has done this again. He has shown leadership and if you think you no longer find leadership in PDP or any other party, why not join the pathfinder; Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole”, Mayaki stated.
