2019: Nigerian Wrestlers Woo Tinubu For Presidency
Former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in recent times has chosen the role of a king maker.
However, the body of professional wrestlers in Nigeria now want Jagaban to be a king himself.
As 2019 general election draws closer, and political campaigns set to begin across the country, the Nigerian professional Wrestling Federation has come out to speak on the politics of who should succeed incumbent President, Muhammadu Buhari.
The Federation unequivocally has called on Nigerians to pick Tinubu as the next President of Nigeria.
The body made known their wish through their President, Prince Ahmed Olanrewaju Mohammed, even as they explained the reasons and rationale behind their decision in a letter to Tinubu.
"In 1999, when the country returned to democratic rule after a long torture journey in the hands of the military, Lagos, the Centre of Excellence, was blessed to have a Leader in person of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. He took over the reign of the state, a metropolitan Lagos State, with little or no resources, alas, after eight years, Lagos becomes one of the emerging mega cities of the world,” part of the letter read.
Prince Mohammed said they are not doing this because of any financial gain or favour but for the love of the country, saying, "as the President of the Nigeria Wrestling Federation, I have not met Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu face to face or had any physical relationship with him, but as a Nigerian one should come out boldly to say it as it is that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu should rule Nigeria to give us the much needed direction for our future.
"As a leader of the modern cast, he has given us a template, which is indelible, which future aspirations to public leadership can be eternally measured. In the midst of many, he has the Eagles eyes of going for the best" the Wrestling boss concluded.
