A new group has emerged in Edo state to draw support for the presidential ambition of the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Benin City.
The group known as Volunteers for Tinubu 2023 last week said it was set to inaugurate its steering committee.
According to a statement by the convener of the group, Ms Adetutu Owolabi, which was made available to media houses, the event would be chaired by the former member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Razaq Bello-Osagie while Dr. Bamidele Agbadua of the Federal Polytechnic, Auchi is to be the guest lecturer.
Owolabi stated that the group has membership across the 18 local government areas of the state and beyond has begun preparations for the inauguration of its executive members that would help achieve a Tinubu Presidency in 2023 under the banner of the APC.
She said the media roundtable would also feature notable media chiefs of both the conventional and new media who she said are convinced that a Tinubu-presidency is “right for the moment given Tinubu’s proven dynamism, inclusiveness, and capacity to mobilize required local and international support towards achieving the goal of a secured and prosperous Nigeria.”©Standard Gazette, 2021.
