Like Messi, Tinubu Will Silence Critics – Keyamo

The spokesperson for the Tinubu-Shettima presidential campaign organization, Festus Keyamo, SAN, has said Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will silence his critics the same way Lionel Messi did on Sunday.

He said this after Messi led Argentina to win the Qatar 2022 World Cup against France.

Shortly after the victory, Tinubu tweeted a Photoshop picture of Messi wearing his trademark cap, which he captioned: ‘Emilokan.’

This followed criticism from some social media users against the former governor of Lagos.

Reacting, Keyamo told Daily Independent:

“It only shows that in such a game like the World Cup and when we talk of the presidential election in Nigeria, what counts at the end of the day is one, experience. Two, the staying power, and then three, the togetherness of the best team. How united and cohesive they are”.

“You can see that after the first match of Argentina which they lost to Saudi Arabia, they didn’t blame themselves or fall apart. They rather came back together as a unit and fought the battle”.

“Again, the most significant lesson we can also learn is that in the case of Lionel Messi, when you have given everything in your life to a cause, it is not out of pride, a sense of entitlement, or haughtiness, the world, and everybody will wish you well because they know that you have given your all to the game”.

“That is exactly what will happen in the 2023 presidential election as regards our candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. When somebody has given his all to a cause and he now says ‘Emilokan’, it is not out of pride. It is just out of sheer humility to say ‘ I have given my all, this is my CV and this is my time’.

“You can see that the younger players at the World Cup. They did their best but at the end of the day, God ruled in favour of Lionel Messi. It was written in the stars that Messi will be the greatest of all time”.

“Today, Lionel Messi has silenced all his critics and they must all acknowledge his greatest of all time. That is what Asiwaju will do to his critics in 2023. Even all his enemies will all acknowledge his greatness”.
