A former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State, Moshood Adegoke Salvador, has said that the Bola Ahmed Tinubu administration is better than that of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
He opined that the region would be doomed for life if they fail to give the president their maximum support.
Salvador who was a member of the 2014 National Conference made this known in Lagos during an interactive session he had with a group of media professionals known as the League of Yoruba Media Practitioners, in Lagos.
The News Agency of Nigeria reported that he urged all stakeholders in the region to set aside their political party affiliation and support Tinubu for the progress of the region and Nigeria.
The former politician said he has currently quit partisan politics and all he cares for now is the progress of South-West and Nigeria.
He said, “the emergence of Tinubu as president from the South-West region could not be compared with how ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo emerged during his reign”. He said, “Obasanjo was a product of the military, imposed on Nigeria and South-West by the power brokers and northerners”.
According to him, this is the best opportunity the South West has had so far in the Nigeria project, since independence, so the Yorubas should rally around their own to give him the needed support.
“I am not interested in any party, whether you are APC, PDP, or Labour Party, that is just a vehicle, but the important thing now is that the Yoruba man is there, he will do what we have been agitating for over the years, and he has the capacity to do it,” he said.
