The lawmaker standing for  Suleja/Tafa  and Gurara federal constituency of Niger State in the House of Representatives, Abubakar Lado Suleja has been fished out as the person who addressed Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as Mr. President recently in London.

Just last week, some Northerner Lawmakers visited the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Tinubu in London.

The legislators were led on the visit by the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Ahmed Idris Wase.

However, a video is currently going viral, showing one of the lawmakers during the visit, addressing Tinubu as Mr. President, to which the Tinubu, a former Lagos Governor also responded thank you as captured in the video which went viral on the internet.

“Mr President, see you soon,” the lawmaker said and Tinubu replied by saying “Thank you.”

 

So many Nigerians have been longing to know the person who uttered such statement., Honourable Suleja has now been revealed as the one who called Tinubu ‘Mr. President.’

Meanwhile, he was contacted for a confirmation and clarification, and the lawmaker said he actually called Tinubu Mr. President but, however, added that he put Insha Allah which means ‘by God’s grace.’

When asked whether his statement implied that Nigeria now has two presidents. He said: “No, we don’t have two presidents, maybe you didn’t listen to the video very well because when I said Mr President, Insha Allah followed it, which means by God’s grace.”

The lawmaker added that it is their wish for Tinubu to become the next President of Nigeria in 2023.

“We are praying for him to become the future president of Nigeria. We have only one president who is President Muhammadu Buhari, who is the leader of our party and our mentor but we are praying for Asiwaju to be the next president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and continue from where President Buhari will stop. That is what I meant.”

He also denied rumors that the lawmakers were in London to endorse Tinubu for the 2023 presidency, saying it was rather a visit to check up on him healthwise.

He said it would be wrong to assume they were there for the purpose of endorsement, adding that such a position will suggest that everyone who had visited Tinubu in London including President Muhammadu Buhari himself were there for endorsement purposes.

“The purpose of our visit was to see his health condition, to pray for him and wish him well. He is very okay and as you can see from the video clip, he looks fine. He stood for almost one hour addressing us.” He said
