A support group, Progressives For BAT has commended the massive turnout of progressive youths of southwest during the declaration rally organised for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu last week in Lagos
In a statement issued by the convener of the group Oguntoye Opeyemi, he noted that with the turn out of thousands of youth to support Asiwaju, it is clearly evident that the youths believe in his leadership and his presidential ambition which he described as a rallying voice in the south West.
“History over the time has shown that Asiwaju political leadership has produced excellent public officials, businessmen, captains of industries whom were all discovered in their youth age.
“While some refer Asiwaju as a identifier of talents, some say he’s a fisher of men while some describe him as a great investor in human capacity and development; all these are pointer to how the Jagaban of Borgu holds the youth in high esteem
The event saw the conglomerate of various progressive youths across the south-western states who came out en-masse to declare their support for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu towards his presidential ambition in the 2023 polls.
The convener further stated that Tinubu greatest asset is his unifying vision and even his worst enemy cannot deny this fact.
“Bola Ahmed understands Nigeria’s ethnic and religious diversity, which is an essential ingredient for leadership. He understands Nigeria; he is a good listener; he is a unifier and this is the kind of leadership the youths look forward to”, Opeyemi remarked
The event which had in attendance the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu; his Deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat and other APC chieftains across south-west has further boosted the confidence reposed in Asiwaju as the leading aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Opeyemi at the end commended youth stakeholders who have started mobilization and reiterated the commitment of his group to ensure the victory of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed as the Democratic elected President of Nigeria in 2023
