The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has been named the 2015 Man of the Year by Thinkers Magazine. This was disclosed via a statement released by the Secretary of Thinkers Communications Limited, Hajiya Saratu Muhammad on Sunday, January 31, 2016.
The statement reads:
“In Nigeria, nay Africa, it is rare for an opposition party to defeat a ruling party as done by APC in 2015.”
“What makes Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s contributions impressive is that as far back as 2013, he spearheaded the move to form an all-encompassing party that can overcome the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).”
“And against odds and despite dangers to his safety and business interests, Tinubu helped secure victory for APC during the presidential poll. In, short he is a man of the people, who fully deserves this honour.”
“We also took into cognisance the number of brilliant gentlemen and Women, whom Tinubu groomed into strategic positions. The competence shown by these men and women has also shown that Tinubu is the ultimate talent hunter.”
Tinubu’s grooming of leaders was also recently highlighted by Senator Gbenga Ashafa who congratulated the APC leader on the emergence of some of his protégés as ministers.
