Associates launch e-library on Tinubu’s political career

- By Raymond Mordi, Deputy Political Editor

ASSOCIATES of former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, have launched an elibrary to facilitate easy access to informatio­n on the political icon.

The informatio­n portal provides the latest and accurate informatio­n on the National Leader of the All Progressiv­es Congress (APC).

The news portal is at: www.tinubustra­ight.com. It provides informatio­n users with accurate news on the frontline politician to avoid speculatio­ns and fake news.

The multi-media electronic library, which is powered by Korki & Associates, divides the news portal into different sections.

It gives an overview of Asiwaju Tinubu, his achievemen­ts as Lagos State governor, his speeches, video events and latest news updates about him.

Another section of the portal, “The Other Side of the News”, features responses to the recent inaccurate portrayals of the man who is one of Nigeria’s most successful politician­s, by some hack writers.

The section, named: “Bola Tinubu Updates”, features recent news stories, like “Tinubu rehabilita­tes Arewa House Library”; “Tinubu: Patriotic Nigerian Elder Statesman, Pan-africanist – Ooni”; “2023 Presidency: Zoning can’t stop Tinubu – Ex-minister”; “APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu returns from overseas trip” and “Asiwaju’s return shatters death rumour.”

His biography, for instance, provides detailed informatio­n about his early life and background, his career and foray into politics.

This section details his sojourn in the United States.

This segment contains Tinubu’s first foray into politics as a member of the defunct Social Democratic Party (SDP), after resigning from his lucrative job at Mobil.

In 1992, Asiwaju Tinubu was elected to represent Lagos West Senatorial District in the Senate.

It also contains how he enlisted as a member of the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO), following the annulment of the June 12, 1993 presidenti­al election and the struggle for the restoratio­n of the late Moshood Kashimawo Olawale (M.K.O) Abiola’s mandate.
