Supporters of the national leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu stormed Akure, the Ondo state capital on Thursday, 11th October, to solicit people’s support in the state on “Tinubu for President” campaign ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
The supporters operating under the political platform known as Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT) Network Vision which was inaugurated in the state on Monday, 28th, are made up of politicians and non-politicians from all the 18 local government areas of Ondo state.
The group declared that Tinubu is the best person to lead the country, describing him as a political strategist and grassroots mobiliser.
Speaking at the event, the coordinator of the state group, Akinlolu Ayodele said the meeting was to gather minds under the umbrella of BAT network vision, focusing on how Tinubu will attain victory as Nigeria’s president in 2023.
Also a former Ondo state commissioner for physical planning and urban development, Sola Amodeni, extolled the leadership virtues of Tinubu, saying his leadership qualities are needed at the national level.
He said: “I believe in Tinubu’s vision; through his leadership at the national level of governance, Nigeria will not be the same in handling the menace of unemployment, insecurity and economic stagnation.”
The former commissioner emphasised that the present hardship in the country especially – economy and security did not start with the ruling APC.
“Eight years of the administration of Buhari cannot even solve the multi-dimensional problem in the country. He is just laying the foundation that the likes of Tinubu can build on solidly if he is given the mandate to rule after 2023,” Amodeni added.
