Groups join forces to harness support for Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition
The Bola Ahmed Tinubu Movement (BAT), a support group of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Bola Tinubu, has collapsed its structure to join Tinubu Support Group (TSG).
Mr Tosin Adeyanju, Director, Media and Publicity of the TSG said this in a statement in Abuja, adding that the objective was to ensure the realisation of Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition.
The statement quoted the National Coordinator and BAT Ambassador Mr Aliyu Saulawa, as saying that the organisation decided to join forces with TSG in the interest of Nigerians and youths in particular.
According to the statement, Saulawa spoke when he led some members of his organisation on a courtesy visit to TSG campaign office in Abuja.
Saulawa said that BAT movement which was birthed as a support group for Bola Tinubu, resolved to collapse its structure and join forces with TSG to work for the actualisation of Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition.
“We are in support of Tinubu’s political ideology which has made us to trust and want to work for him as we have mobilisers across the federation who serve as our foot soldiers.
“It is obvious that elections are actually won at the grassroots, and that is our strength, from where we are going to start working,” he said.
He noted that Tinubu, a former two-term governor of Lagos State, had done well to be trusted to lead Nigeria to a greater height.
Saulawa stressed that his organisation would be ready and willing to work and carry out any responsibility that may be assigned to it, in the propagation of Tinubu’s political ambition.
According to the statement, James Faleke, member representing Ikeja Federal Constituency in the Senate who received the group, said Tinubu had done so well in the development of Lagos State.
He added that Tinubu had to a large extent, invested in people without minding their origin.
“It is now our responsibility to give him the required support by electing him as the next president of Nigeria in 2023, so that he will continue the good work God has assigned him to do.
“Tinubu’s ambition should be a collective effort irrespective of our political affiliations, tribe and standings in the society so that he can continue to reflect Lagos achievements on Nigeria generally,“ he said.
Faleke commended the national coordinator of the BAT movement for seeing reasons for his group to join forces with TSG towards the realisation of Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition.(NAN)
