A group commissioned to mobilize support for the National Leader of the All progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, ahead of the next general elections; the Tinubu Support Group (TSG), has urged members of the party and all citizens seeking a better Nigeria to ensure the realization of the ‘Tinubu for Presidency’ campaign in 2023.
The call came on Saturday as thousands of Tinubu’s supporters gathered in Abuja to declare support the former Lagos state governor as they also launched the TSG and inaugurated the group’s States’ steering committee.
Delivering the keynote address at the event tagged, “Unveiling of Asiwaju’s Legacies and Inauguration of States’ Steering Committees of Tinubu Support Group”; member representing Ikeja Federal Constituency at the Federal House of Representatives, Honourable James Abiodun Faleke described Tinubu as the perfect man for the job.
Hon. Faleke who led a long list of Federal and State lawmakers to the well attended event said the APC and Nigerians in general were lucky that history had presented Tinubu to them for Presidency at a time like this when the leadership of the country was working all round to ensure peace and prosperity for all citizens.
The Chairman of the House Committee on Finance expressed confidence that most of the achievements of Tinubu as governor of Lagos state could easily be re-echoed at the national level, having proven himself as a great economists with convincing political qualities.
In his words: “it is not often that history nurtures a particular person to fit into the needs of a particular time. Our party is therefore lucky that it does not need to go on a wild goose chase for the man to fly our party’s flag in these challenging times; a time when the Presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria must go to the person who can continue to end banditry, to crush kidnappers and engage separatists so that our people can live in peace and prosperity. This is a man who will use his financial wizardry to further the gains of economic transformation”
“To secure the votes of the majority in 2023, we must present a candidate who knows where the shoe pinches the average Nigerian, not just because he has been there, but because, as the governor of the most difficult, most complex state in Nigeria, he put smiles on the faces of the poor by convincing the rich to join the government to chase poverty from the streets”
“That man is Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Asiwaju of Lagos, Lagos State. The Jagaban of Borgu, Niger State, The Eze-obaIu-dike ngu of Oko, Anambra State. He is already our national leader. By the practice and standards in other cimes, when the issue of raising a Presidential Candidate is on the burner, such a personality should be given the right of first refusal”.
