Former Lagos governor Bola Tinubu says he is qualified to be Nigerian president because being Nigerian president is not a job that require physical fitness like bricklaying and grave digging.
Mr Tinubu said this during his visit to the palace of the Ooni of Ife and Owa Obokun of Ijesaland, in Osun State on Thursday.
In his words;
“I am the quality that Nigeria is looking for to make this country very great, prosperous and united, not only in Africa but in the world.”
On the rising concerns about his frail health, Mr Tinubu had this to say;
“If you hear them saying, can I do it? I am not applying for the job of a grave digger; not race running, I am not a horse.
“I am not applying for bricklaying. I went to school to study accountancy and management. I am applying for a job of the brain; intelligent thinking; it is a job for someone who is ready to do things right,” Mr Tinubu stressed.
“I will not let Nigerians down. I have the brain and capacity.”
Mr Tinubu returned to Nigeria last October after spending three months in a London hospital. His media office said he underwent a knee surgery and took so much time to rehabilitate.
