A group, Nigerian Youths for Tinubu, has declared its
support for the National Leader of the All Progressives
Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and promised to purchase
his presidential nomination form.
According to a statement on Monday, the convener of the
group, Idris Aregbe, disclosed this while speaking with
journalists in Lagos.
He said, “Nigeria needs a trusted and reliable visionary,
who feels the pain and anguish of the people and is
capable of making life better for us. I do not think there is
any as qualified as Tinubu today, and that is why we are
behind him and ready to purchase the presidential
nomination form for him.
“We are convinced, going by his track record as a
progressive, about his victory and that informs our
decision. Besides, it is also a way to stamp the legitimacy
of youths on the presidential election process and we
shall further ensure rigorous involvement of youths in the
Aregbe added that the former Lagos State governor laid a
blueprint for the state, hence the reason for their support.
“As a builder passionate about infrastructure, the former
Lagos State governor not only laid the blueprint for
infrastructure development of modern Lagos, but also
ensured the productivity of the state. Today, Lagos State
remains a model amongst other states in the federation
owing to the golden era of development ushered in by the
Jagaban,” he said.
