ENUGU – PRESIDENT of Enugu Youth Movement and former Northern Director of Amnesty International, Chief Chris Agu has described the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the last man who stood for Alliance for Democracy, AD.
Agu’s group, who for over ten years has held annual thanksgiving in honour of the former Lagos state governor, said that Tinubu was a gift to mankind as well as to Nigeria.
He who spoke in Enugu during the Thanksgiving said “When I was in AD, I contested for the Chairmanship of Kaduna North Local Government Area of Kaduna State in 2004. I discovered that Senator Tinubu was the only man left in AD that was interested in the welfare of the party nationwide.
“So, what he did for us in Kaduna made me vow that such a personality, a gift to Nigeria must be celebrated or appreciated by going to God in prayer to protect him; to fight all his battles, spiritually and physically. Since 2005; we have been doing this and even when I relocated to Enugu; at Heavenly Grace Mission here in Enugu, every year we go to give God thanks for Senator Tinubu especially during his birthdays.
“We go there to pray for him because he is a man you can trust, he’s a man that when he is holding anything in common with you or sharing idea with you, he will be thinking on how to improve you not how to defraud or cheat you.
“During our Amnesty International days; those days when NADECO and other activists were hunted by the Abacha Government, although Tinubu went on exile, but he was very supportive to the course. So, when I learnt that he had taken over the campaign of President Buhari as the Chairman of his campaign, I said God thank you because this is a man of good luck.”
