ABEOKUTA—Yoruba Youth Congress, yesterday, explained why it chose a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the best politician in Yorubaland.
The Congress, in its communique signed by its National coordinator,, Sunday Ogini, described Tinubu as ‘the original game changer of Nigerian Political landscape’.
The group, which also conferred Oodua Speaker on the Speaker of Ogun State House of Assembly, Suraj Adekunbi, said the duo worked for the awards.
According to the communique, the positive change which Nigerians are hoping to see in the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration was as a result of the tremendous efforts put up by Tinubu.
The communique read in part “Oodua Politician of the Year Award is a celebration of a great leader and worthy ambassador of Yoruba race.”
The group however, called on the President not to dash the hope of common men on the provision of food and shelter.
“The Yoruba Youth Congress called on President Muhammad Buhari to ensure that the hope of common men on provisions of food,electricity and affordable petrol and kerosene is not dashed on focuses of war against corruption.
“Nigerian voted for positive changes and hope to see changes in every sector in no distant time”, he said.
