Senator Gbenga Ashafa, Senator representing Lagos-east in the National Assembly has begged the University of Wolverhampton in the United Kingdom to dedicate an academic course to the study of the political style of Bola Tinubu.
Ashafa made the plea after the investiture of Tinubu as patron of the university’s Centre for African Entrepreneurship and Leadership on Monday.
He said, ”I suggest that the centre should consider the option of studying his (Tinubu’s) methodologies of leadership with the ultimate goal of developing a curriculum on it. This, I believe, would prove immensely beneficial to future generations that would pass through the four walls of this institution”.

“I commend the university for carefully identifying and selecting the person of Asiwaju Tinubu, our leader, as the patron of the CAEL.
“Having had the awesome privilege of going through the curriculum of the centre and its mission, I make bold to say that the choice of Tinubu is perfect, being a colossus that has excelled in nurturing global leadership and entrepreneurship.
“For Africa to achieve its full potential, it must seek to forge ‘Africa-centric’ alliances with institutions like yours.
“Therefore, I urge the leadership and members of faculty of the centre to take full advantage of the depth and wealth of experience, which Asiwaju brings on board as the patron of the centre,” Ashafa said.
