The Steering Committee for National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s presidential campaign has been inaugurated in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) ahead of the 2023 general poll.
The event held at the National Secretariat of the Tinubu Support Group (TSG) at Maitama -Abuja, drew Tinubu’s supporters from different parts of the country and the FCT.
Though Tinubu is yet to declare for the apex seat, many groups have started rooting for him.
Speaking at the event, a former Chairman of the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), and Coordinator of the TSG in the FCT, Zaphaniah Bitrus, said the essence of the event was to put structures in place to ensure that Tinubu succeeded President Muhammadu Buhari, at the expiration of his tenure in 2023.
Bitrus, who also emerged Chairman of the Steering Committee for the FCT said, “Take the Tinubu campaign to the grassroots and mobilise Nigerians to vote Tinubu for President in 2023.
“We should support him. Let’s give him the mandate. When he takes over, many things are going to change. He believes in equity, fairness and justice and he will boost the nation’s economy. He has done alot of labour for the party; he has given himself to the party. We will not disappoint him,” he said.
Similarly, the TSG women leader, Mrs Toyin Badmus, said Asiwasju presidency would guarantee women inclusiveness in the scheme of things and prepare grounds for their better standards of living.
Earlier, the TSG Director General, Umar Ibrahim, said the best thing that would happen to Nigeria at the end of Buhari’s tenure would be to inaugurate Tinubu as the next President.
