Asiwaju Ball Tinubu
Mr. Mark Tersoo, Director, Youth Mobilization for the North-Central All Progressive Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council wants the party's youth to aggressively mobilize for the party's presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Tersoo said this during the opening of the Youth Mobilization for the APC North-Central Presidential Campaign Council and released the party's schedule of activities on Tuesday in Abuja.
He said the inauguration was to ensure that the youth crowd mobilized and ensure victory for Tinubu and his running mate Senator Kashim Shettima and other APC candidates in the 2023 general election.
According to Tersoo, it is now necessary to establish an effective commitment and put in place structures to coordinate an aggressive mobilization of youth in the six north central states and the FCT.
“You have to go all out to the nooks and crannies of the north central part of the country and tell the success stories of the party and how well the party has performed in the last seven years.
"It is necessary to consolidate the achievements of the presidential candidate," he said.
Therefore, he urged young people to champion the cause of APC's victory in the area to build strong partnership, unity and understanding among party stakeholders.
He also urged them to identify means and measures to mobilize more people, especially youth and students, to support and vote for the party's candidates.
“I want to ask you to create more political awareness among citizens based on the integrity of the party's standard-bearers before the elections.
“This considering the fact that the north center is the third largest geopolitical zone in the country.
"It is necessary to deploy any means that convince the electorate to vote for the party's presidential candidates during the elections to demonstrate their number," he said.
He also described the APC presidential candidate as someone who cares about young people.
Tersoo tasked APC North Central Youth to immediately begin aggressive mobilization under the general supervision of the Tinubu National Youth Coordinators.
He also urged them to develop and implement “Get the Votes Out (GOTV)” strategies targeting students, youth clubs, the National Youth Council/Movimiento Nacional de la Juventud, and first-time voters ages 18-25.
Tersoo also urged them to work with the campaign council's Directorate of Grassroots Mobilization to implement a door-to-door campaign for young Nigerians.
“Organize and identify youth leaders in each state, strengthen their capacities to educate them in line with democratic rights”, he said.

The Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has promised Kogi people of a fair deal, if elected president.
Tinubu gave the assurance on Thursday in a speech delivered on his behalf by Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi, at a solidarity walk at Muhammadu Buhari Civic Centre Lokoja.
The APC flag bearer appreciated the tumultuous crowd that trooped into the confluence city from all over the state to demonstrate their support and solidarity for him and his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima.
He assured that the voice and demands of Kogi people would be heard loud and clear, not only in the campaign council but also in the next APC administration.
He pledged to build on the successes of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
He said his administration would work assiduously to confront insecurity, revamp the economy and target double-digit GDP.
He added that he would increase megawatts of electricity to power the industries, businesses and homes, and empower the people through creation of jobs, affordable loans and mortgages, among others.
Tinubu also sympathised with the Government and people of Kogi over the flood disaster, assuring that, ”flooding will be a thing of the past when we get to office”.
Tinubu appreciated the governor, who is the National Coordinator for Youths in his Presidential Campaign Council, and his deputy, Dr Edward Onoja, as well as members of the State Executive Council and all Kogi people.
“I extend my warmest greetings to you all.
I appreciate this tumultuous crowd.
You have all gathered here to demonstrate your support and solidarity for me and our presidential running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima and of course for your hardworking governor, who I always refer to as my son.
“Let me assure you that Kogi will occupy a right of place in our administration.
You are the Confluence State.
You are important to us in the APC and the country.
“Apart from the presence of your Governor, Yahaya Bello, in the Presidential Campaign Council, one of your sons, Rt. Hon. James Abiodun Faleke, is also the Secretary of our Campaign Council.
”So you are ably and adequately represented.
“Your voice, your demands will be heard loud and clear not only in the Campaign Council but also in the proposed administration when we are elected by the Special Grace of God. “Let me assure you that one of the very first things we will tackle is the perennial flooding in Kogi ”Flooding is a big problem in Kogi perhaps because of its strategic location as the confluence between Rivers Niger and Benue.
“This state has particularly been ravaged this year by flooding.
You have lost precious lives, you have lost properties.
You have lost farmlands.
”Part of the reasons we have put together this special walk for is to draw attention to this flooding problem.
“I want to tell you today that flooding will be a thing of the past when we get to office.
”We will work with the Kogi Government to devise a permanent solution to this problem.
The blessings of God exemplified in torrential rain should not be a curse on us.
”I make bold to restate that we will tap and develop the abundant resources available in Kogi in conjunction with Kogi Government for the benefit of the people of Kogi and Nigeria.
“I assure you, this state will not be surcharged in the scheme of things.
With me as your president, you will get what is due to you.
“I thank you all for your presence in large numbers for this historic walk.
The presidency will not forget you.
We will always remember this day,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the crowd, led by Gov. Bello closed the solidarity walk at the Kogi State APC Campaign Secretariat.
Sen. Bola Tinubu, Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said the cooperation and support of the private sector was required to implement the reforms in his economic master-plan.
Tinubu said this at the APC’s campaign council town hall meeting and dialogue with the Business Community on Tuesday in Lagos.
He noted that during his tenure as governor of Lagos between 1999 and 2007, his administration developed a largely successful blueprint.
He explained that the success of his tenure turned the state into a safer, more prosperous place, for any legitimate venture irrespective of person, religion, region or ethnicity.
“We opened the door for Nigerians to witness the same thing as we work hand in hand with the business community sharing the same goal of prosperity and renewed hope.
“I now stand before you seeking a bigger yet similar job; the similar practical work that improved Lagos is what I want to bring to the nation.
“The task ahead is difficult but doable and I need you to help this come through,” he said.
The APC Presidential Candidate commended the efforts of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, saying that the government performed with patriotism and commitment during trying times.
He, however, stressed the need to go further and faster, via his experience in both public and private sector to renew hopes and rebuff the despair of Nigerians.
Tinubu reeled some of his economic blueprint to include the revival of the nation’s industries by bringing the nation’s industrial policy to life through creation of major and minor industrial hubs in each of the geographical zones to grow faster from bottom up.
He added that his team would foster productive excellence in areas such as light manufacturing, the creative industry, with active participation in the digital economy to birth the fourth industrial revolution.
Tinubu said his administration, if given the opportunity to be president, would target a minimum Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth of between six to ten per cent.
He furthered said the requisite reforms to champion productivity in the agricultural sector for increased exports and provision of food for the ordinary citizen would be done.
“We must produce, then buy made in Nigeria; we shall make Nigeria a leader instead of a bystander.
“We seek consumer credit revolution, affordable credit for businesses and the business sector shall increase in so many folds.
“It took a lot to start the dream and realise the goal of that sea port.
For land and water management – all catchment areas must be studied to stem all problems,” he said.
Tinubu also expressed his determination to provide constant electricity, expand infrastructure from roads to ports, lands, and deep sea ports.
“I am determined to give you affordable and reliable power to light the entire economy as we cannot produce without constant electricity.
“We have what it takes to bring it to you all; we have the gas, sun, wind and water.
“As for petroleum subsidy, it has to be removed and my administration would see to the implementation of the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA),” he said.
To tackle the country’s security challenges, Tinubu expressed his readiness to fight terrorism via counterterrorism.
He stated that his administration’s response to the country’s insecurity shall be defined by elements such as enlisting more people into the military, police, and other security forces.
He added that he would provide area and ground surveillance, identify, monitor and defeat the evil groups anywhere in the country.
“We shall have no respite until they surrender.
A nation is not driven by itself but the content and the people that reside in it.
“Nigeria would move, crush all enemies, and bring progress and prosperity for today and tomorrow,” he said.
The former governor of Lagos said his tenure would push for gender balance through more women inclusion in the composition of his administration and decision making processes.
Sen. Kashim Shettima, Vice-Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said the administration would with its comprehensive economic plan combat insecurity by adopting proactive intelligence driven approach.
This, he said, was in recognition that security was a great determinant to private sector investments.
Shettima said the administration was prepared to make the required investments as part of the mandate to take the nation to greater heights.
He added that the team was committed to improving electricity generation to about 20, 000 megawatts to drive economic growth.
“There would be reforms to drive investments in renewable energy and we would introduce policies that ensure the transmission and generation of power.
“The time has come for Nigeria to manufacture and the administration would align for local manufacturing as we cannot be dependent on importation.
“Adequate investments and consideration would be given to the agriculture, education, and healthcare sectors.
“We would address the inadequate health infrastructure to tackle high mortality, dependence on imported medicines and vaccines,” he said.
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, says President Muhammadu Buhari, APC Northern Governors and leaders have proved that Nigeria can survive its unity and other challenges.
According to a statement by Mr Tunde Rahman, Tinubu’s Media Officer, on Sunday in Abuja, the APC 2023 presidential candidate said this in Akure, Ondo State, at the residence of Afenifere Leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.
The statement said Tinubu spoke during an interaction with Afenifere leaders while presenting his policy document and Action Plan for a better Nigeria.
It recalled Tinubu’s earlier visit to Pa Fasoranti on March 4, during his nationwide consultation before the APC presidential primaries when he promised Afenifere leader that he would come back after winning the party’s ticket.
It said the visit was in fulfilment of Tinubu’s promise and to ask Yoruba leaders to thank President Buhari and APC Northern Governors for their steadfastness and for being promise-keepers.
“The North proved to me Nigeria can survive its unity, some people wanted President Buhari to announce someone, but the president said no.
He insisted the process must go on democratically.
“The president said anyone that would mess up the APC process would see the other side of his eyes, he remained upright and saw to the process to the end.
“Northern APC Governors resolved that the presidency must go to the South, and especially South-West, Gov. Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State and others supported me to the end.
“The battle was tough and at a point I was in doubt, there were many rumours and I became confused of what to believe,” the statement quoted Tinubu as saying.
Tinubu said he won the APC presidential primary election because the process was clean and transparent, adding that nobody could accuse Buhari of manipulating the process.
“President Buhari said I gave him credibility and I deserved to be President.
When I asked him to nominate the Vice-Presidential candidate for me, he said I should pick whoever I want,” Tinubu said.
He added that this was why he chosed a competent man in Sen. Kashim Shettima, who according to him, never lost any election and protected Christians in time of trouble in Borno State as its governor.
The statement added that while welcoming Tinubu and his entourage, General Secretary of Afenifere, Chief Seinde Arogbofa, charged Tinubu to be a leader that would unite Nigeria and work for the progress and development of the country.
Arogbofa said Tinubu was not just a Yoruba man, but a Nigerian, adding that when he became president, he should take Nigeria into consideration and never to forget home.
“Our demands are what you know already.
restructuring, security and fixing the economy; our country is no longer safe, we want state police so that the country will be safe,” the statement quoted Arogbofa as saying.
According to the statement, the Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa, received Tinubu and his entourage on behalf of Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu at the meeting.
Aiyedatiwa said Ondo people were Afenifere and would support Tinubu to win the election because he had the reach and competence to lead Nigeria.
The statement said the Ekiti State Governor, Biodun Oyebanji at the meeting, assured the Yoruba leaders that all South-West governors and Ekiti people were solidly behind Tinubu.
It added that former Secretary of the Government of the Federation, (SGF) Chief Olu Falae, and Afenifere leader charged Tinubu to work to fix the country’s economy.
“When you become president please work to fix this country, we are here to offer advice.
I am old and no longer looking for job.
“We need to fix security, fix our economy, our naira is almost becoming useless and will soon become N1,000 to a dollar.
“We must change that.
I know your ability, we will always be here to support and I wish you well.
We will be here when you bring the throphy home by the grace of God,” the statement quoted Falae as saying.
It said leaders of Afenifere from the six South-West states, including Kwara and Kogi were present at the Akure residence of the Afenifere leader to offer support to Tinubu.
It listed Afenifere leaders at the meeting to include: Chief Pius Akinyelure, Prof. Isaac Adewole, Chief Olu Falae, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, Alani Akinrinade, Olu Bajowa, Mr Sola Iji and Dr Kunle Olajide.
Others it said were General Secretary of Yoruba Council of Elders, Sen. Cornelius Adebayo, Sen. Iyiola Omisore, Chief Bisi Akande, Dare Babarinsa and Chief Pius Akinyelure.
The statement said Oyo State Deputy Governor, Bayo Lawal represented Gov. Seyi Makinde, the state governor at the meeting.
Also at the meeting were Chief Segun Adesegun who represented former Governor Segun Osoba, Sen. Tony Adefuye, Sen. Dayo Adeyeye, state leaders of Afenifere and many others, the statement said.
Afenifere was formed as a socio-cultural and political organisation for the Yoruba people of Nigeria, with Chief Abraham Adesanya as its leader and late Chief Bola Ige as deputy leader at the time.
Malam Muhammad Bello, Federal Capital Territory Minister, has charged Muslim clerics to continue to champion national unity, peace, progress and development.
Bello made the call at the 18th Extraordinary Dawrah (Forum) of 17 imams from South-South, South East and South West with the theme, Imams Unity for National Development, held on Saturday in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the forum was organised by the the Committee of FCT Imams Initiative (CFII), under the Chairmanship of Sheikh Tajudeen Adigun.
Represented by Malam Muhammad Bashir, the Director, Human Resources Management, the minister also enjoined imams to pray for peaceful conduct of the 2023 General Elections in the country.
” The Federal Capital Territory Administration welcome this type of forum and indeed it is going to assist the administration in driving the affairs of the territory and the country at large.
” Particularly as the the theme of forum aptly captured, It has come at a better time as the nation is approaching the 2023 General Elections ” The conference will add value to what the administration is doing to enhance national cohesion in the Federal Capital Territory.
” Also, the Presidential Candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Bola Tinubu, also said that very little can be achieve inna country without unity.
The former two-term governor of Lagos state stated that islam has debunked any thoughts of racial or cultural superiority of one group of people over another.
Represented by his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima, he said the unity of Nigerians irrespective of their religion and ethnicity was important to the development of the country.
According to him, no nation, society or community can ever develop without unity and what binds us together supercedes what divides us.
” I’m extremely delighted that this forum is being attended by 17 imams from the Southern part of this country that are here to brainstorm.
” He commended the CFII for championing the course of promoting unity among Muslims with a view to enhancing national unity and development.
Earlier, Sheikh Adigun, explained that the conference was to remind the imams of Islamic brotherhood and unity, which was key to complete faith of a Muslim.
He said that Allah has mentioned imams in several chapters and verses of the Holy Qur’an, adding that the primary duty of Imams was to guides the people by the commandments of the Almighty Allah.
He explained that Imams must maintain the guidance of people as stipulated in the Qur’an and the teachings of prophet Muhammad.
He, therefore, urged Imams to champion the fight against corruption, noting that the best way to fight corruption is to connect man to his creator.
” If people fear Allah they will not steal.
No amount of security votes, EFCC and ICPC can stop insecurity or corruption except the fear of Allah.
” Imams need to do a lots in fighting corruption but they themselves must be clean from corrupt practices because they cannot fight it if they are involved in it.
” On his part, Dr Haroun Ogbonnia, Vice President-General, Nigeria Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), said the conference would “elevate the status of Imams from the level of beggarliness to self reliance.
” It is good that they have brought us from the Southern part of the country so that we can discuss our predicament which is more unique.
Sen. Kashim Shettima, vice-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 election said in Abuja on Saturday that people must be alive to vote.
He was reacting to questions from newsmen who wanted to know what would happen to potential voters whose Permanent Voter Cards were lost to recent floods across the country.
“Beyond the issue of voter’s card, people have to be alive for them to cast their votes.
“It is very disheartening and unfortunate that we lost lives and property to the floods,’’ Shetima said at the unveiling of the national campaign headquarters of Hadizatu Uwani Mustapha (HUM) APC national support group.
“We sympathise with victims; we were in Damaturu on Friday to commiserate with flood victims.
’’ he said.
Shettima said, however, that he is just a member of the political party, and that political parties should be allowed to play their role appropriately in that regard.
Commending HUM, Shettima said: “words cannot adequately convey our depth of gratitude for all the sacrifices you have made in mobilising men and resources for the party.
“This is to ensure that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and I win the election and be sworn in as president and vice-president in 2023.’’ He said all hands must be on deck to ensure victory.
“I thank HUM sincerely from the depth of my heart for her commitment, passion and empathy for our course,’’ he stressed.
In her remarks, Mrs Hadizatu Mustapha, chairperson, HUM national support group said no nation would record growth and development except with competent and courageous leadership.
She said the APC had taken the right step in the choice of its presidential candidate in the person of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima.
She said also that the APC would attract massive votes based on the wide acceptance of the presidential candidate and his running mate across the country.
“HUM national support group has initiated this move to unveil this edifice to house our operations to help us to translate our energies and expertise to deliver our candidates across board come 2023 general elections,’’ she said.
She said the group had no doubt that Shettima would deploy his energies, competences and critical thinking to complement that of his principal in furtherance of the vision set to change the tide of Nigeria.
This according to her is encapsulated in the agenda entitled “Hope Renewed’’ of the candidates.
“Our faith is tied to hard work and not luck.
“We should, therefore, set out to do our best in the interest of posterity so that the next generation after us shall be proud of us,’’ Mustapha said.
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Sokoto state, Hajiya Munawwara Yazid says the party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 General Elections will be a game changer for Nigeria.
“Tinubu is an achiever just as he is a tested and trusted accomplished technocrat.
He will certainly change the narrative in the country, if elected,”she said.
Yazid told the News Agency of Nigeria in Sokoto on Saturday that the combination of Tinubu and his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima is a good omen for Nigeria.
“The duo are tangible achievers in their own ways .
Both were former Governors and former Senators.
“Their respective states were massively transformed when they successfully Lagos and Borno states.
“They will surely replicate those feats for Nigeria, if elected during the 2023 presidential poll,”Yazid added.
She said that Tinubu would sustain the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari and even surpass them.
According to her,” Nigerians will enjoy more dividends of democracy if they elect Tinubu and Shettima.
“The duo will improve the economy of the country, sustain anti corruption fight and ensure the security of lives and properties of Nigerians.
” Meanwhile, Yazid promised to mobilise over 20,000 votes for APC in the forthcoming general polls.
She said:”I will do this under my group, Zuhaf Strategic Alliance and so far, I have facilitated the defection of over 13,000 members of other political parties into APC.
” These new entrants into the APC were from 14 out of the 23 Local Governments of the state and we are still counting.
” Yazid also said that APC’s governorship candidate, Alhaji Ahmed Aliyu and his running mate, Alhaji Idris Gobir would also revamp Sokoto state, if elected.
“They will replicate the sterling achivevemts of the former Governor of the state, Sen. Aliyu Wamakko in terms of infrastructural development and welfare of the people,”she said.
The National Coordinator, Students Vanguard, Mr Sunday Asefon promised on Wednesday in Abuja to mobilise students to vote for the ticket at 2023 presidential election.
Sen. Bola Tinubu and Sen. Kashim Shettima are presidential and vice-presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the election.
Asefon made the promise at the unveiling of the Students Vanguard.
Asefon, former President, National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), said the group would be the largest students movement targeted at actualising the “Renewed Hope’’ mandate.
“ Students Vanguard was set up to advance the course of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Sen. Kashim Shettima for president and vice-president of Federal Republic of Nigeria, respectively.
“This is by sensitising, educating and mobilising all registered student voters across all the campuses in the country.
“This will ensure that they participate in forming good governance and while doing this, inculcate a culture of governance through our sensitisation and re-orientation programmes on campuses.
“It is also to tell them the reason why Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Sen. Kashim Shettima are most preferred at this material time,’’ he said.
Asefon added that the group members were ready to change the mind-sets of Nigerian students and awaken in them the spirit of nationalism and hard work.
He explained that this would be done by developing positive attitude towards the presidential and vice-presidential candidates of the APC.
The ex-NANS president said today’s Nigeria needed visionary, deep thinkers, and men with the Midas touch, who could take the country on a journey of prosperity.
Asefon promised to mobilise millions of Nigerian students for the project, while educating them on the need to support the Shettima train.
“We have continued to send the message of renewed hope to future generations through our various platforms.
“Today is a day to re-awaken the consciousness of Nigerian students as a youth group whose interest is the total wellbeing of our student members.
“We cannot seek for anything short of a rosy future for the younger generation which the incoming president has championed in the time past.
“When he was the governor of Lagos State he initiated numerous policies and programmes that bettered the lives and living of people,’’ Asefon said on Tinubu.
“Nigerian Students are solidly behind Tinubu.
He is our first choice, the second choice and the third choice for the exalted seat.
“We beckon on all Nigerians to join us in this journey,’’ he added.
Asefon commended the Federal Government and ASUU for ending the last eight-month strike by varsity lecturers.
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says holding political office is more of an opportunity to serve and impact on lives of millions of people than the prestige that comes with the position.
His spokesman, Mr Laolu Akande, quoted the vice-president as making the assertion at the unveiling of a book titled “Deputising and Governance in Nigeria’’.
The book was authored by the governor of Kano State, Alhaji Abdullahi Ganduje.
The book launch was part of the programme at a workshop where the roles of a deputy to an elected public official, especially vice- presidents and deputy governors came under public searchlight.
The workshop featured reminiscences by former President Goodluck Jonathan, who was deputy to deceased President Umaru Yar’Adua, Osinbajo, the author himself and his deputy, Alhaji Nasir Gawuna.
“A thought that runs through the book is that in spite of the put-downs of the office, being political number two is important.
“This is because political office is about the lives of millions of people and not just about the prestige of office.
“In our constitutional democracy, the effectiveness of the number two citizen, the vice-president, depends a great deal on the trust reposed in him by the president.
“That is a function of loyalty and it goes both ways as Ganduje points out in his book,’’ Osinbajo said.
The vice-president highlighted the importance of dedication, loyalty and service in political office on governance.
He described the relationship between him and his boss – President Muhammadu Buhari, as ideal and exemplary.
“I am more fortunate than others in my relationship with my principal, the president who genuinely believes in the role of the vice-president.
“At a time that he was embarking on medical leave, there were a few things that were outstanding to send to him.
“All he said was: “I don’t want you to send me anything, it is your job now, just make sure you do a good job,’ ’’ Osinbajo recalled.
Osinbajo said that as former President Jonathan said of his relationship with late Gov. Diepreye Alamieyeseigha of Bayelsa, Buhari did not expect him (Osinbajo) to call him when he was away.
“He expects that I know what to do and should do it,’’ he noted.
The vice-president drew an analogy of the spare tyre widely used to describe the role of the deputy to the president.
He explained that a better description would be that of the relationship between a pilot and his deputy in an aircraft.
“Imagine a commercial flight with people, including you on a plane, there is the captain, and then there is his deputy.
“The captain flies the plane, but no human being can be completely focused for several hours.
“So, sometimes he gets up and goes to the bathroom while the flight is on; his deputy had better be a good pilot, otherwise lives are at risk.
“Can you imagine a situation where the captain leaves the cockpit briefly and you hear an announcement from the cockpit: “ladies and gentlemen, I am the deputy to the captain; the captain is in the restroom, and I am only a spare tyre and I am not sure what to do now?
” “If you are in that plane you will ask God for forgiveness for expecting that a deputy or assistant plays no role,’’ he said.
Osinbajo observed that the book was full of wisdom and wit from a practical politician and erudite social scientist, Alhaji Ganduje.
“Ganduje is worth studying not because he has always succeeded politically, but because he failed many times, yet he always knew how to lose and not get lost.
“This book is not about Ganduje and his achievements, it is more of a textbook on governance and politics.
“And we have heard this most eloquently from Prof. Attahiru Jega, the book reviewer today; it contains important nuggets on those two subjects,’’ Osinbajo said.
The vice-president recommended the book to everyone, not just politicians, but anyone who had any kind of interest in good governance.
Dignitaries at the event included the APC vice-presidential candidate, Sen. Kashim Shettima, who represented the party’s presidential candidate, Sen. BolaTinubu, Govs. Babagana Zulum (Borno), Inuwa Yahaya (Gombe) and Abdulrahman Abdulrazak (Kwara).
The United Kingdom (UK) Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said that Nigeria needs a courageous leader with in-depth experiences on economy and politics ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Mr Ade Omole, eader of the chapter said this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja while congratulating the Yoruba World Congress (YWC) for endorsing Asiwaju Bola Tinubu candidacy.
He described the group’s decision to work for the enthronement of a Tinubu presidency in 2023 as the wisest by all standards.
“On behalf of the APC, I want to congratulate YWC on its decision and plans to ensure the success of our party’s 2023 presidential candidates, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima.
“I am confident that this relationship will wax stronger in few days as the campaign continues in Nigeria, your decision is no doubt the wisest by all standards.
“Nigeria as a country needs a courageous strong leader, a pan-Nigerian with in-depth experience on economy, politics and others, this is where Asiwaju Bola Tinubu stands out.
“I can assure you that you have not made a mistake,” Omole who is also the Director of the Diaspora Directorate of APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) said.
He expressed optimism that Tinubu would take the country to the promised land due to his capacity.
“Once again, I want to welcome you on board of this laudable project, we are all in it together, we will win and we will all win together,” Omole added.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Yoruba World Congress (YWC), is an umbrella body of all self-determination groups and socio-cultural organisations of Yoruba descent worldwide
