He also cautioned the party against allowing the widespread insecurity which he claimed was sponsored by enemies of the country, to define the 2023 campaign, stressing that the APC under Buhari’s watch has made solid achievements that is blurred by Insecurity.

“The solid achievements of the Buhari administration in transportation (including our fast rail service and improved road network). mass housing, preventive health, export-led agriculture, functionai education, improved electricity and stronger communications are today blurred by the threats posed to the national economy by the dangers of banditry, kidnapping and separatism.

“The destablising agenda, sponsored by domestic nihilists and foreign enemies of Nigeria, must not be allowed to shape the narrative of the 2023 elections.

“Our party and government must snap victory from the jaws of these challenges. It is not the time to experiment with inexperienced experts. It is not the season for those who can talk but have no history of walking their talk”  he warned.

“To secure the votes of the majority in 2023, we must present a candidate who knows where the shoe pinches the average Nigerian, not just because he has been there, but because, as the governor of the most difficult, most complex state in Nigeria, he put smiles on the faces of the poor by convincing the rich to join the government to chase poverty from the streets. That man is Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Asiwaju of Lagos, Lagos State”

Earlier in his address, Arc. Umar Ibrahim Mohammed, Director General of Tinubu Support Group (TSG) said the main
objective of the group is to mobilize followership and a formidable, popular grassroot support base for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu ahead of the 2023 polls.
