Senator Opeyemi Bamidele (APC-Ekiti Central) has stated that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has the scientific touch to deal with problems rocking Nigeria.
Speaking to newsmen at the weekend, the former governorship aspirant noted that Nigerians should be looking for someone who can fix the economy and shun sentiment over the APC’s Muslim-Muslim tickets.
According to the lawmaker, Tinubu has the scientific understanding to fix broken communities, broken states, and broken situations.
Bamidele said the country needs someone who can help fix this economy not someone who is coming to protect any particular religion.
He said: “My own understanding of what Nigeria needs right now is a president who has the scientific understanding of what is to be done, scientific understanding of what is wrong, the antecedent of having been able to fix broken communities, broken states, broken situations and who has a scientific understanding of the workings of the economy because a lot of the problems that we have are traceable to the economy.
“As much as possible, we also need somebody who will have the courage to take decision without minding whose ox is gored, and without setting out to either protect any particular religion or tribe or group of people.
“We need Nigerians to come to terms with the reality of the fact that our search should be for someone who can help fix this economy not someone who is coming to protect any particular religion or somebody who is a product of a particular religion but somebody who decisively understands what it takes to turn a nation like ours so that we don’t get left behind by the rest of the comity of nations, that’s a genuine concern I nurse.”
