Former presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad has congratulated the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu after the Labour Party rally in Lagos.
The rally was said to have witnessed a massive turnout of a mammoth crowd in the economic capital of Nigeria which some political observers believe is a stronghold of the LP candidate, Peter Obi.
Obi and his supporters embarked on a road walk from the Lekki-Epe expressway to the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos.
The rally was said to have caused a massive traffic gridlock along the Lekki-Epe expressway.
But Bashir, a former House of Representatives aspirant, feels the turnout for the LP rally was not enough to assure Obi’s victory in Lagos State.
He said if that was all the Labour Party’s candidate could do it would not be wrong if he starts now to congratulate his own party’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He tweeted, “If that’s all the Labour Party could get in Lagos with over 6,000,000+ votes, then it’s very safe to congratulate our candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as the next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
