“Whosoever wins the presidential election in 2023 will be confronted with monumental challenges and opportunities within and outside the country that will test the mettle of such a president.

“Nigeria is at a delicate stage of its developmental process and needs a President with a hand on experience and Senator Tinubu who has governed Lagos, the most commercial of Nigeria 36 States deserves to be given an opportunity to pilot Nigeria affairs from May 29, 2023,”

According to him ” Tinubu adroitly managed Lagos – the smallest state in the country but with the highest urban population accounting according to a Lagos official document for the 26.7 per cent of Nigeria’s total GDP and more than 50 per cent of non-oil GDP, controls 80 per cent of the foreign trade flow and with an estimated population of 24 million -larger than many other economies in the neighbouring West African countries.

The Canada based Psychiatrist and the convener of the Oshodi for Tinubu /Shettima media Group noted that ” Tinubu laid the foundation for the current Lagos that today accounts for the chunk of capital importation into Nigeria.

“According to the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, for Q4 2021, Lagos State alone was the top destination of 90.66 percent of the total capital investment,

“Also in Q2 2022 of all the capital importation to Nigeria, Lagos alone accounted for 66.66 percent, and was followed by Abuja, the Federal Capital with 29.57, leaving the rest 35 states to share a paltry 3.77 percent.

Oshodi described Tinubu as a man with innovative thinking who touched every facet of Lagos as a governor from 1999- 20 04, an attribute needed by Nigeria at this stage of its development for the desired transformation.

“He created the Ministry of Environment to tackle the issue of flooding head on, introduced the one-day governor programme that brought young boys and girls into the limelight and reformed the health sector accompanied with the distribution of free eye glasses.

“He created a Housing Ministry to redress the acute shortage of housing in Lagos, with a mandate to construct affordable houses and introduced the Independent Power Project, and the Bus Rapid Transportation – BRT, with Lagos State Transport Management Authority. LASTMA to develop a culture of regulation, control management of traffic operations and to ensure hitch free traffic on Lagos roads.

“Tinubu also created 37 more local councils in order to bring government more to the people and brought the Lekki corridor into limelight, the Lekki corridor that that had become a beehive of economic activities with the Dangote Refinery and Petrochemicals, the 650,000 barrels per day integrated refinery, the largest single train refinery in the world;/ the Dangote Fertiliser, a 2.5 billion dollar investment and the Lekki Sea Port Nigeria’s largest multipurpose Port in Nigeria among the and the companies located today in the Lekki Free Zone.

Oshodi added that ” If Senator Tinubu was voted as the next president, he would replicate all these achievements and even accomplish more at the national level and give the country the leadership that would inspire it to greater glory with new thinking, innovative ideas and vision.

News Update?Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Sitting Begins October 26

Latest Politics updatein nigeria

Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal will on October 26 begin a full hearing of the petition filed by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) against the declaration of Senator Ademola Adeleke as governor-elect.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that the tribunal made this pronouncement after concluding the pre-hearing session on Thursday.

The tribunal was asked to dismiss the applications of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), seeking the discontinuation of the petition brought to it by Governor Oyetola.

Counsel for Oyetola and the APC, Lasun Sanusi, SAN, at the sitting of the tribunal argued that Adeleke’s, PDP’s and INEC’s reliance on a Federal Court High judgment was nothing but an abuse of court process.

Sanusi argued this while replying to separate applications of the trio, seeking the dismissal of the petition based on the already appealed Federal High Court judgment disqualifying Oyetola from contesting the election.

Citing Supreme Court decisions in the case of Jegede Vs INEC, 2021, 14NWLR, Pt 1797, page 409, the counsel said the court had ruled that the signatories to the letter conveying the nomination of a candidate were not the nominators; rather, the nomination was done by party members at the congress, hence, the judgment could not stand.

Meanwhile, the counsel for INEC, Prof. Paul Ananaba, SAN; counsel for Adeleke, Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN and counsel for the PDP, Dr. Alex Izinyon, SAN, agreed that any decision the tribunal would take on the matter would have to wait until the Appeal Court and the Supreme Court decided on it.

They noted that they just decided to argue the applications to have it on record, a position which the tribunal agreed with and put on record.

Also, in other applications totalling nine by the three respondents, they asked the tribunal to strike out some paragraphs of the petition on the grounds that they were either lumped together or not related to the 2022 election.

In response to each of the applications, Sanusi said all the cases cited by the respondents were misconceived, adding that they were not applicable in the instance case.

He cited the case of INEC Vs Otti, 2016, 8NWLR, where the Supreme Court hinted that INEC was supposed to be neutral, arguing that all the processes filed before the panel have not portrayed the commission’s neutrality.

Sanusi further argued that the applications filed by the respondents were only meant to prevent the tribunal from focusing on hearing the petition on merit, asking the panel to dismiss the applications.

Subsequently, counsel for all parties in the matter agreed to begin the full hearing starting with the calling of witnesses on October 26.

In his ruling, the tribunal declared the pre-hearing session concluded and announced that the pre-hearing conference report would be presented on October 17.
