Read the interview below:
Can you introduce yourself sir?
Comrade Emilagba Bashiru: I am Comrade Emilagba Bashiru Bisoye, the chairman Ebute Metta Youth Forum, under the leadership of Lagos Mainland Local Government. I am also the Director of information and culture, NANS southwest (Zone D) and the National Cordinator for BAT Youth Advocates.
What do you for a living?
Comrade Emilagba Bashiru: I’m a student, a model and a politician.
There has been an outcry over Muslim/Muslim ticket. Do you support such motive?
Comrade Emilagba Bashiru: Well, I think what we should be concerned about is, who is better at carrying out the task.
Either a Muslim/Muslim or Muslim/Christian, we should be convinced that the goal is to move our nation forward.
From your introduction, it could be observed that you’re in support of Tinubu’s candidacy. Why did you support him ahead of others?
Comrade Emilagba Bashiru: Yes because I believe he is a very good candidate Nigeria needs right now. Looking at the problems of Nigeria and solutions, Tinubu is what Nigeria really need.
I am not saying we don’t want Youth like my other youths have been clamoring, but looking at all the presidential candidates right at the moment, none of them is better than Tinubu.
I can list the problem of Nigeria and ways of solving them using Tinubu as the then governor of Lagos state as a theory.
What is the chance of Tinubu defeating others to emerge as the president?
Comrade Emilagba Bashiru: His chance is very high because he is a strong politician and has lots of supporters across the Nation.
What will you do if he doesn’t emerge?
Comrade Emilagba Bashiru: There is nothing holding him not to win but in politics “it is either you win or *you win*”. With the look of things and the work he has been doing from the past, it is obvious that he is going to win.
Okay. What advise do you have for Nigerian youths?
Comrade Emilagba Bashiru: I will advise them to get their PVC because PVC is their sword and shield.
What do you plan to achieve in the next five years?
Comrade Emilagba Bashiru: Actually, I plan to achieve a lot of things.
My plan is to become a great politician, a good listener and an accessible person, a role model to the youths and a kind hearted personality, being who puts the voice of the masses first in whatsoever I do…
