I am telling everybody in public today that I, Abdulazeez Yinka-Oniyangi will vote for governor Abdulrahman come 2023.I am not unaware that some of you may have had issues with the governor.
I want to beg of you to please overlook whatever shortcomings  of the governor for the sake of me and Asiwaju Tinubu. This is right and best  option for us at this material  time except we want to be Spectators during Tinubu’s Presidency.
In his goodwill message, Hon Suleiman  urged Nigerians to deemphasize  religion sentiments and embrace competence and capability

” Asiwaju Tinubu is a  political juggernaut and master strategist .It is on record that he is also great developer and promoter of talent and excellence.So people should stop mixing politics with religion. This is a man who married a Christian as wife and he never force her to embrace Islam” Suleiman said.
