A group of Nigerians based in the United States under the auspices of Tinubu Presidential Forum (TPF) has intensified their sensitisation exercise, engaging fellow citizens, relatives as well as associates on the need to cast their votes for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Some of these Nigerians especially those with their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) have also indicated plans to return home, cast their votes as well as mobilise the electorate on February 25 and March 11 to support Tinubu and other APC candidates.
These were stated during a town hall meeting organised for Tinubu and Shettima at the Hyatt Regency Chicago Hotel, 151 East Wacker Drive, Chicago, Illinois.
The Coordinator, TPF Diaspora, Alh. Olatunji Quadri, said that the group would be embarking on many activities especially in the diaspora to ensure that the APC presidential candidate becomes President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor.
Quadri, in a statement, jointly signed by the Director of Special Initiatives, Tola Banire, added that their conviction that Tinubu was the right candidate to lead the country formed their decision to mobilize Nigerians to support and vote for him.
According to him: “The Diaspora Nigerians are a very important demographic that cannot be ignored and as the election approaches, we need to reach out to our people, especially our families and associates with Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) back home, ensuring that they cast their votes massively for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu during the presidential election on February 25th.
“We will also like to encourage some of us to travel back to Nigeria for the election and be part of Asiwaju for president project in the country“.
Banire said everyone in the group has decided to work individually and collectively for the APC presidential candidate and other flagbearers on the party’s platform.
Also during the town hall meeting, the group presented Tinubu’s closest friend, Dr. Shaffideen Amuwo, an award for his outstanding contribution and support for Nigerians residing abroad especially in Chicago for over 54 years.
