Tanko Yakasai, an elder statesman, says President Bola Tinubu did well as the governor of Lagos and will replicate the successes, now that he is leading Nigeria. 

Yakasai spoke on Thursday after meeting with Tinubu at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Yakasai, a former aide to late President Shehu Shagari,  said he prayed for Tinubu to become the leader of the country, noting that only politicians can correct Nigeria like it was done in Germany.

“We are looking, we are yearning for God to bring somebody like Asiwaju to be the president of Nigeria,” Yakasai said.


“From Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Asiwaju is the last leader of this country from the political class and I’m a politician, I spent 60-something years in politics.

“I know that only politicians will correct this country, as they’ve done in Germany, as they’ve done in America, as they’ve done in England and other places, Russia and the Soviet Union.

“I’m happy that Asiwaju has now been elected by the people of Nigeria as president of this country. I saw what Asiwaju did in Lagos. Lagos in terms of revenue and development, is bigger than a lot of countries in Africa.


“When I visited Lagos and was taken round, I said I prayed that God will bring Asiwaju to lead this country and replicate what he did for Lagos to Nigeria and God has answered my prayers.”

Yakasai said Nigerians should support the administration of Tinubu to succeed.

“Let us pray that he will succeed in his mission and let us pray that all Nigerians, regardless of their tribes, will give him cooperation and we’ll all team up with him to work hard,” he said.

Also speaking with reporters, Bisi Akande, former interim chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said the party has brought good governance to the country.


“People will expect the rejigging of our party, the APC and the re-establishment of good governance in Nigeria,” Akande said.

“And it should go on record that the APC brings good governance to Nigeria.”
