Former commissioner for Transportation in Lagos State, Dr Kayode Opeifa, has urged Nigerians to go for the Tinubu/Shettima presidential ticket, saying it remains the best presidential pair at this critical moment of national life.
He also added that Nigeria needs their robust experience from the private sector in managing the country.
According to him, the presidential team of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on February 25, 2023, presidential election will erase the fault lines of division among the federating units of the country.
Opeifa spoke in Abuja at the weekend during a capacity-building session for affiliated support groups with the theme “Tinubu/Shettima Ticket: A pan-Nigerian Project” under Project Beyond 2023 by Asiwaju Grassroot Foundation (AGF).
Speaking on the topic, “Knowing your brand, message, medium, target audience and allies during the campaign”, he said Tinubu/Shetimma represents the essence of integrity, impeccable capacity and people with vision.
He stressed the need for the participants at the training to understand their products (Tinubu/Shetimma), adding that in marketing the APC candidates, “we should let them know that they represent the essence of integrity, impeccable capacity and people with vision.”
Opeifa noted that the country has never had a formidable ticket of Tinubu/Shettima, insisting that, “this is the first time in history that we will have a president and the vice presidents coming from private sector backgrounds.
He added: “You all know what it means to work in the private sector for international companies. Work with Deloitte, you work with an international oil company. No international company would engage you if you are not brilliant.
“So, we need to know that none of the competitors can pose these qualifications. Where you have to go with a private sector background, the experience is going to be different, the service delivery is going to be different because they are coming with the knowledge.”
