An old tweet by Doyin Okupe, a former presidential aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has surfaced, showing him praising Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as someone competent to be President in 2023.
The tweet was issued in 2021.
Tinubu is contesting on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
He will be going against the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, whom Okupe is supporting, and former vice president Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Okupe’s tweet read, “Besides this I personally see Bola Tinubu as a formidable opponent in d 2023 presidential race.
“Asiwaju is one of d most politically sagacious politician in this period. His acumen & administrative competence are worthy of commendation.
“In summary Asiwaju will be a good President.”
