Former senior assistant to two former Presidents, Doyin Okupe has said during a series of tweets that the APC National leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will be a good president for Nigeria but his presidential ambition is under threat mostly from those within his staples and not necessarily from the opposition.

The former SA on Media and Publicity to President Olusegun Obasanjo, first commented on the purported slump nor stumble the former Governor was claimed to have encountered during an event in Katsina, the Arewa Conference 2021. Doyin Okupe credited Tinubu for his unique political acumen, his administrative competence, noting that he is one of the most politically sagacious politicians in the country at the moment.

However, Doyin Okupe, said he is a more qualified candidate than Tinubu noting that he has an advantage over Tinubu because he knows national and Presidential politics more than he does plus he was at the wrong party due to the performance of his party currently.  Doyin Okupe


I think I should begin by commenting on Bola Tinubu’s purported ” slump” or “stumbling” at the Arewa Lecture. Please let it be clear that I am not commenting on the state of health of Asiwaju.
Just on my own observation drawn from watching the video currently in circulation. There was neither a fall nor a slump. From that video these english words cannot be ascribed to what is seen on the video.
What I saw was a Bola Tinubu walking on a plain and unaware of a step down in level or a slight decent which created a mis-step and a stumble leading to a brief staggering which can happen to anyone walking in a crowded unfamiliar terrain
Besides this I personally see Bola Tinubu as a formidable opponent in d 2023 presidential race. Asiwaju is one of d most politically sagacious politician in this period. His acumen & administrative competence are worthy of commendation. In summary Asiwaju will be a good President
However, I believe I have a slight edge over him in that I understand national and Presidential politics more than him and in terms of intellectual resourcefulness we are at par if I am not better.

But Bola Tinubu is coming in from a wrong party where he has such powerful antagonists that have capacity to stop him. D flagrant excesses of his party 2 which he never reacted publicly especially wt issues concerning d SW has made him not 2 be favoured by some of his own people.
The other misfortune is that though Bola Tinubu has spent his life and his huge resources on developing political powerful lieutenants who now occupy very high and influential offices, now at his own point of need his major challengers are virtually all from his staple.
On my part, a great advantage is that I am the only Yoruba of note in the presidential race from the PDP. This race promises to be interesting. May the Almighty God grant us all health and life to run this race for the betterment of our Nation and its people in Jesus Name. Amen.Doyin Okupe
