A youth group said it has already raised N10 million to enable former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to purchase nomination form that will enable him to run for the 2023 presidential election under the platform of the ruling party
Mr Samuel Alamoh, the Director-General of the group known as Tinubulate Nigeria Agenda (TINA), revealed this at the inaugural press conference of the organisation in Abuja on Friday.
The group presented a dummy cheque for the N10 million which they said was to demonstrate their commitment to support Tinubu if he presents himself to run for the election.
Alamoh said that as a group craving for the consolidation of “our democracy and yearning for a prosperous Nigeria come 2023, they are fully ready to mobilise for Tinubu.
“Our group has concluded plans to present the cheque to Tinubu for the purchase of the expression of interest and nomination forms to run for the presidency, when the party commences the sales of the forms.
“Though Asiwaju Tinubu has millions of supporters, followers who are always ready to come together to pay for his nomination form, our members, supporters, well-wishers and followers across Nigeria believe in shared responsibility.
“That is why we have to pool our meager resources together for this noble course, if he formally declares his interest to be chosen as candidate of our great party, APC, for the coming presidential election in 2023.’’
Alamoh described TINA as a group of reputable Nigerians, young professionals in diverse fields with passion and commitment to drive togetherness, love and peaceful coexistence among Nigerians.
He said the group members are convinced beyond reasonable doubt that Tinubu possesses all the qualities, competence, capabilities, capacities and experiences needed to actualise the Nigeria the citizens dream of.
Alamoh also expressed the group’s confidence in Tinubu to lead a government with comprehensive policies that encompass monumental infrastructural and human development with unprecedented economic growth.
“This support group was founded in line and in support of consolidating President Muhammadu Buhari’s achievements in all sectors of the Nigerian economy and democratic development.
“As good citizens committed to the progress, unity and stability of Nigeria, it is our inalienable right to throw our weight and give our unrelenting support to any individual capable of bringing about good, exemplary, responsive and progressive leadership.
“Tinubu transformational leadership acumen, outstanding, managerial skills and futuristic orientation stand him out among all.
“We are convinced beyond every reasonable doubt that he possesses all the qualities, capacities, and experiences needed to actualize the Nigeria of our dream and aspirations of the citizens.
“We are not unaware that the task is onerous and enormous; it demands the collective efforts of all Nigerians of good conscience, love and passion for a progressive and prosperous Nigeria.“
He said that as a group, they recognised the need to partner with eminent Nigerians willing to identity with Tinubu come 2023, saying they are already consulting and gathering support for the great course they strongly believe in.
Alamoh disclosed that the group is preparing to inaugurate it zonal chapters in all the six geopolitical zones by March, followed by the inauguration of state chapters.

South West Congress: You Are Only Afraid of Free And Fair Congress, PDP National Organising Secretary Blasts Ogun State PDP Chairman Mr Mr. Sikirulai Ogundele
The Unedited Press Statement.
RE: COMPLAINT OF ILLEGAL RELEASE OF OVER 150 BALLOT PAPER TO GOVERNOR MAKINDE FOR BALLOT STUFFING AT SOUTH-WEST CONGRESS
Our attention has been drawn to a spurious and baseless Petition circulating in the Social media purportedly signed by Mr.Sikirulai Ogundele, the Ogun State Chairman on behalf of Chairmen of Ogun, Lagos, Osun and Ekiti States.
The petition alleged that “over 150 (One hundred and fifty) ballot papers for the election of National Vice Chairman and Zonal Secretary have been released to a group illegally by a Staff of the Directorate of Organization and Mobilization intended for ballot stuffing”. The petition also claimed that “the hatched job of stuffing the ballot boxes with these illegally released ballot papers is to be supervised and achieved by a ‘certain Senator Anyanwu’”.
Ordinarily, there would have been no need to comment on the misleading letter since the allegations are false and malicious, but, in this age of Social media, it is important to save the unsuspecting public from falling prey to the antics of the author, in the name of politics.
It is on record that under our watch, our Party has consistently conducted some of the best primary elections. The last Presidential Primary election of October 2018 was accorded the status of the most transparent and best primary election of any Political Party in the history of our Country. Ekiti (2018), Osun (2018), Kogi (2019), Bayelsa (2019), Ondo (2020) Governorship Primary Elections were unquestionably free, fair, transparent and credible.
I wish to implore every member of our Party, the Delegates and Stakeholders across the Country to discountenance this unnecessary, irresponsible, reckless and false publication. The NWC will continue to ensure free, fair, credible and transparent primaries in line with its oath of office.
Col Austin Akobundu (rtd).

PDP remains Anambra’s hope for good governance- Ologbondiyan
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed confidence that it will win the November 6, Anambra governorship poll, as it remains the hope of the state for good governance.
According to the PDP, it ” presents the hope for the state to rebuild and and realize its full potentials”.
The opposition party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, stated this, on Sunday, in Abuja, while playing host to a coalition of Anambra youths under the aegis of Anambra Youth Initiative For Good Governance.
Ologbondiyan pointed out that the alleged dearth of electoral activities in other parties in the state is an indication, ” that they have already given up ahead of the November election”.
He noted that the assemblage of leading aspirants as well as the surge of the people to the PDP, clearly indicate their resolve to elect the next governor of the state on the platform of the opposition party.
The reality of the direction the November 6 governorship election in Anambra state will take is already manifest.
“Ndi Anambra are very industrious, resourceful and inventive people and they have collectively realized that they can only achieve their full potentials on the platform of the PDP.
“This is particularly given our robust manifesto and wealth creation principles of inclusiveness, transparency, accountability, massive infrastructural development and empowerment of the people.
“Across our nation today, it is only PDP governors that are commissioning legacy projects. From Rivers to Bauchi, Sokoto to Bayelsa, Akwa-Ibom to Benue, Abia, Adamawa, Edo, Oyo, Cross River, Zamfara, Enugu, Taraba to Delta state, projects upon projects are being commissioned on daily basis in line with the manifesto of our great party.
“While other parties are struggling under the weight of unfulfilled promises and misrule, our states are opening new development and investment frontiers in critical sectors including agriculture, aviation, energy, power, healthcare, education, real estate manufacturing and massive industrialization.
“This is why Ndi Anambra have firmly resolved to rally on our platform to revamp and move their state towards realizing its full potentials in all spheres of life”, Ologbondiyan stated.
The National Convener of the Coalition, Okechukwu Umeh, in his remaks, restated the confidence of Ndi Anambra in the PDP.
Umeh noted that all hands are already on the deck to ensure the victory of the PDP in the November election.
