Ambode made the comments on Tuesday, March 28, at the 9th Bola Tinubu Colloquium in Lagos.
“Like the coconut, some by-products/fruits will get bad along the way or after being sold in the market; in actual fact, the political product may not be the favourite of some other people,” the governor said.
“The bottom line, however, is simple. If Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, were a coconut; I dare say, with all simplicity, I would be among the forefront liners that will eat, drink and sleep B.A.T. 24/7.
“There is no doubt the Asiwaju political dynasty is a made in Nigeria product. The foundation laid and blueprints developed during his tenure as governor of Lagos State which cuts across all sections of the state’s economy have actually simplified the process of governance till date.
“His blueprint has continued to serve as a road map to achieving the Lagos of his and our dreams. This same political product without doubt, traverses the Nigerian landscape and that is evident with the emergence of the APC at the centre in 2015. Asiwaju is a made in Nigeria product. We should make more products out of him,” he added.
President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier praised Tinubu for his political will which led the APC to defeat the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2015 elections.
