Give Tinubu ‘Right Of First Refusal’, Group Urges APC


Thousands of supporters of Mr Bola Tinubu on Saturday urged the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to grant the APC National Leader right of first refusal as a candidate of the party in 2023.

While Tinubu is yet to publicly speak about his presidential ambition, his supporters have ramped up the pressure on him to declare and have made the party’s presidential candidate Mr Tinubu’s affair and no one else.

On Saturday in Abuja at an event organized by the Tinubu Support Group TSG and tagged, ‘Unveiling of Asiwaju’s Legacies and Inauguration of States’ Steering Committees of Tinubu Support Group’, they urged Tinubu to come out and declare as he is far ahead of all those scheming to replace President Muhammadu Buhari.

The event which attracted dignitaries from all states of the federation including Sen. Adamu Mikal and six former state assembly members from Yobe state; members of the House of Representatives led by Hon. James Abiodun Faleke; Hon. Tunji Bello from Lagos State, Alhaji Sanusi Gamji from Kogi; former Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, Mr Babachir David Lawal, Senators Solomon Olamilekan, Opeyemi Bamidele, Ganiyu Solomon, Ibrahim Gobir, state assembly lawmakers from Kano and a host of others spoke of the difference Tinubu would make if he emerges Nigerian President.

Speaking at the event, Hon Faleke said; “It is not often that history nurtures a particular person to fit into the needs of a particular time. Our party is therefore lucky that it does not need to go on a wild goose chase for the man to fly our party’s flag in these challenging times; a time when the Presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria must go to the person who can continue to end banditry, to crush kidnappers and engage separatists so that our people can live in peace and prosperity.

“This is a man who will use his financial wizardry to further the gains of economic transformation.”

He explained that, “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. The Jagaban of Borgu, Niger State, The Eze-obaIu-dike ngu of Oko, Anambra State. He is already our national leader. By the practice and standards in other climes, when the issue of raising a Presidential Candidate is on the burner, such a personality should be given the right of first refusal”.
