The idea of unveiling Tinubu’s Plan of Action in the presence of Nigeria’s biggest players within the country’s banking and industrial sectors is nothing but a MASTERSTROKE by Ahmed Bola Tinubu.
Believe it or not, a program launch that had the biggest industrialists and bankers in attendance, and even clapping, must never be underestimated. These are the men who turn the tides of electoral outcomes in Nigeria. Little wonder Aliko Dangote and Jim Ovia are forever in the good books of every government in Nigeria.
Tinubu’s Plan of Action and the 2023 Presidential race
While Tinubu‘s Plan of Action is big in promises, it however fell short of the real specifics. The Plan doesn’t tell Nigerians how Tinubu intends to achieve the lofty objectives he has mapped out, especially given our country’s dwindling revenues and galloping expenditures.
However, politically speaking, the launch of the Plan succeeded in galvanizing support for the APC presidential candidate amongst the Organized Private Sector who may have begun to take him more seriously.
In the run-up to the general elections, politicians would have to seize their moments to achieve greater visibility and acceptability.
At this point, no one cares about the practicality of ideas or manifestos, what matters most is the politician’s ability to convince the electorate to vote for him. Unfortunately, this is where Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar seem to be lagging.
The Presidential Campaigns so far
While Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is yet to flag off his presidential campaign, he has however succeeded in wetting the ground enough for a surplus electoral harvest. Conversely, the campaign flag-off of Peter Obi in Lafia, Nasarawa State was utterly colourless and lacking in vigour.
Despite the huge turnout of party supporters, the entire thing looked like a senatorial campaign in one ‘unknown’ state. It lacked the usual pomp and pageantry normally associated with presidential campaigns.
On his part, Atiku’s presidential campaign flag-off in Akwa Ibom State was overshadowed by the number of PDP governors absent from the gathering due to his ongoing battle with Governor Nyesom Wike.

In the end, what will win in the next year’s election will not be the truth but the ability and capacity to convince, confuse and dazzle the electorate. Politics is not a moral game, it’s a battle of wits, and only the sharp-witted will carry the day!
