The monarch said that Tinubu deserves to be the next of Nigeria.
Alhaji Sulu-Gambari said that “before now, without sounding immodest, I have been desirous of Tinubu becoming the president of the country. Tinubu connection cuts across the length and breadth of this country.
“When we met in Gwandu for book launch in Kebbi state, the former Lagos state governor was the higher launcher. His pedigree and anticident stands in good stead.”

“Every Nigeeian wants the best to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari so far the person is from the south. It is God that gives power but we pray for the best.”
Also speaking, Oba Muhammed said that: “The motive for your coming to this palace which is Asiwaju Tinubu for president is a welcome one. I make bold to say that I was born and weaned Lagos. My mother is from the heart of Lagos main land.

“For now, we will keep our fingers crossed. When it is time for us to talk. Lagos is the creation of God. And what we refer to as the current Federal Government is the handiwork of Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu.”
