Nuhu Ribadu, a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), says the All Progressives Congress (APC) should not underrate its opponents in the presidential race.
Apart from Bola Tinubu, other frontline presidential candidates are Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, Rabiu Kwankwa so.
Ribadu stated this at the inauguration of the APC stakeholders relations directorate for the 2023 poll. He described Tinubu as a ‘saleable candidate’ and one with an extensive political network.
“Luckily, our job is cut out for us. We have the most saleable product in the market today. There is no one candidate out there better than our own.
“Asiwaju Tinubu is an accomplished human being and a thorough-bred administrator and maverick politician. He has something to show from his glowing antecedents.
“He will not learn on the job. He also has a wide network of friends and associates everywhere in Nigeria, which makes our job of outreach very much easier.”
Speaking of the directorate, Ribudu said, “This is however not the beginning of the work. “Some of us have burnt many midnight candles for a long time, even before the formal constitution of the directorate, working to build bridges between critical stakeholders.”
