Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, says he is convinced that the All Progressives Congress will win the 2023 presidential election with its flagbearer and his running mate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima respectively.
Lawan said this in his goodwill message at a special dinner organised for patrons and advisors of the APC at the Campaign Headquarters in Abuja.
The Campaign Patrons and Advisers are made up of former governors, National Assembly members, ministers, accomplished politicians, and former senior appointees of the Federal Government.
The Senate President noted the political pedigree and experience of Tinubu and Shettima, stating how much they have achieved in their respective governance in improving Nigeria as a nation.
He said, “The APC is on its way to winning the elections with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kashim Shettima who are great Nigerians that have achieved a lot in their various political journeys.”
In his remarks, Tinubu described the campaign patrons as reputable politicians who have worked hard for the party and sacrificed so much for the growth of democracy in Nigeria.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by Dr. Makut Macham, Director of Press and Public Affairs to the Director General of APC Presidential Campaign Council, Gov Simon Lalong.
Tinubu expressed delight that they are fully behind him and his vision to give Nigeria a ‘Renewed Hope’ to make it better.
The former governor reassured them that when elected, he will do his best to tap the experience, knowledge and skills of technocrats from various parts of the country to address the challenges of the nation.
Shettima also applauded the audience, saying the wide acceptance of his joint ticket with the APC national leader demonstrates that Nigeria’s are moving beyond the politics of ethnicity and religious sentiments to considering capacity and excellence.
