A member of the Federal House of Representatives representing Ifako-Ijaiye Federal Counsituency, Senior Pastor Hon James Adisa Owolabi, has described Asiwaju Tinubu as a bridge builder who will unite Nigeria and develop the country.
Owolabi said this during the prayers section of both Muslim and Christian clerics he organised for the actualization of 2023 Asiwaju Tinubu’s Presidency in his constituency.
He said the Constituency is going spiritual, “we are going spiritual for the actualisation of Asiwaju 2023 Presidential Agenda. We affirm that nothing shall be given unto you except that it is from heaven above.
“As stated in the book of Daniel 2 Vs 21.
He said we are mindful and been guided that our Creator, the one and only supreme being can help us bring to fruition and actualisation, our aim and intention of seeing our leader – Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu become the president of the most populous black nation and giant of Africa- Nigeria by May 29th, 2023.
The lawmaker said: “Gathered here today, are clerics from the Christian and Muslim faith to pray fervently for the actualisation of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Senator Kasshim Shettima. Good governance is not and can never be a function of religion. Asiwaju has been a Muslim all his years with a Christian and Pastor Wife for Four decades. He has been a performer since his college days to Mobil to Senate to Governor of Lagos as one man standing, as the National Leader of APC who took the Southwest out of regional to national politics. Asiwaju was the governor who built chapel at the Lagos State Government House, he was the governor who built an interdenominational facility for Christians in Lagos.
He said Asiwaju is a man of many firsts, he was the first, as governor of Lagos State to fight for True Federalism through creation of Local Council Development Areas which falls under the purview of the State but hitherto usurped by the federal government. He fought the case to the supreme court of justice till justice is served in 2006.
He said: “The creation gave birth to 37 LCDAs with the inclusion of OJOKORO here, that we are today. The creation of these LCDAs engenders new development within the nooks and crannies of Lagos State, including those areas we couldn’t have thought of visible development in terms of roads and general infrastructures.
Asiwaju is not only a builder of men as widely known. He is a notable builder of institution in contemporary politics and governance.
Asiwaju is the “general” who placed Lagos State on a pedestal of continuous progress and development with his well thought out master plan/ blue print which sees Lagos economy ranking as the third biggest in Africa.
“A leader takes people where they want to go but A great Leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go but ought to be and that is what Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Presidency as a great leader will give our nation.
I could remember vividly at Ojo primary school, how we mobilized under the rain to ensure Asiwaju’s emergence as the Senatorial Candidate for SDP in the 1993 Primary elections. That day still lingers in my memory, like it was just yesterday, because it was the day that birthed and moulded our struggles, sweats and pains through his great leadership that has given us the opportunity to contribute our own quota to the development of our immediate community and the Nation at large.
I feel lucky and honored to have followed his paths of political democracy as a Senior Pastor and General Overseer who is surrounded more by moslems. I am happy to have lived and been a Member of Federal House of Representatives under his tutelage. Nothing will make me happier than to witness Asiwaju’s Presidency come 2023.
