Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has likened the National leader of All Progressive Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to coconut, a fruit, nut or seed known for its versatility.
Ambode made this comparison at the 9th Bola Tinubu Colloquium tagged: ‘Make it in Nigeria: Use what we make, make what we use’, held at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos on Tuesday.
“Like the coconut, some by-products/fruits will get bad along the way or after being sold in the market; in actual fact, the political product may not be the favourite of some other people. The bottom line, however, is simple. If Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, were a coconut, I dare say, with all simplicity, I would be among the forefront liners that will eat, drink and sleep B.A.T. 24/7,” Ambode said at the colloquium, which was one of the events lined up to mark Tinubu’s 65th birthday.
Surprisingly, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s chieftains, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro and Otunba Ggenga Daniel were some of the dignitaries in attendance at the event.
Others include, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu, Gov. Bello Masari and Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
