Senator Solomon Adeola (APC-Lagos West) has said there is nothing wrong in having the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, as his godfather.
In an interview with NAN, the Chairman Senate Committee on Local Content said he does not have regrets having Tinubu as his political godfather.
Adeola was reacting to the belief by some Nigerians that his actions and inactions, particularly on the floor of the Senate were geared towards pleasing Tinubu rather than his constituents.
The lawmaker said while the interest of his constituents remained paramount to him, he had high regards for Tinubu, who had nurtured his political career.
He said: “I want to thank my father, mentor and role model, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu who endorsed me as the party’s candidate.
“Were it not for God and Tinubu, I would not have been here today.
“I also want to thank all the party members for seeing me fit to go for another election.
“I am here on a mission, to protect and defend our democracy.
“I believe in the power of the people and they are the ones to decide those that will represent them.”
