The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has been described as the best presidential aspirant to deliver the presidency for the ruling party in 2023.
The former lawmaker representing Rivers South-East Senatorial District, Magnus Abe stated this on Thursday during a meeting with stakeholders in the party.
The meeting was held to inaugurate Bola Ahmed Tinubu Vanguard at the Captain Elechi Amadi Polytechnic in Port Harcourt.
He further stated that the former Governor of Lagos State can retain power for the APC at the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure.
Abe said, “Tinubu is the only man that can deliver the killer punch that will make the APC in power after President Muhammadu Buhari leaves.
“Whether Tinubu wins the APC ticket or not, I will contest the governorship of Rivers State and still stand a chance of winning. We must choose the APC candidate that will deliver the APC in Rivers State.”
Abe said he would support any candidate that emerges at the end of the presidential primaries of the ruling party.
The former lawmaker said, “The reason I am supporting him is simple. I looked at all who want to run, who claim they have done this and that and I saw that Asiwaju is the person in APC that can deliver.
“I was not being sentimental, he did not tell me he was going to support me, no. I support him because I want the party to win.”
