An APC chieftain in Taraba state and the organizing secretary of Tinubu Organization for 2023 Presidency, Hon. Audu Ade, has endorsed the former governor of Lagos State, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as a suitable politician and a candidate of the APC to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Ade stated this while speaking to journalists in Jalingo at the weekend.
According to him, Tinubu stands out as one of the politicians that could consolidate on the next level milestones of President Muhammadu Buhari-led's administration, if given the mandate.
In his words "You know there was an agreement between Tinubu, President Buhari and other stakeholders which we may not know, but they as Elders and leaders of our great party, the APC, know what is on the ground. And what I want to appeal to the 'Jagaban' (Tinubu) is that he should emulate President Buhari to carry everyone along, irrespective of tribal, ethnic or religious tendencies, for the development of Nigeria.
"Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a man of integrity who played a vital role in forming the APC that brought the present administration of Baba Buhari to power. He also played a tremendous role in uniting members of our party and by extension, Nigeria as a nation.
"Therefore, if Tinubu is able and capable to run for the presidency in 2023 which we are very optimistic that he will, l would expect him to build from where President Muhammadu Buhari will stop, because I believe everybody knew the development he had brought to Lagos state when he was the Governor and also a Senator as well".
Hon. Ade however said, Tinubu choosing the former acting governor of Taraba state, Senator Sani Abubakar Danlami, as the organizing leader for 2023 is an indication of victory. His campaign organization in Taraba will put in their best to see that he comes to power 2023.
Ade who recently resigned as a Senior Special Adviser to Governor Darius Ishaku and dumped the ruling PDP in the state and returned to the APC, explained that presently, besides APC members, a lot of people from other political parties have indicated interest and readiness to join the train in supporting Tinubu to run for the 2023 Presidential election because he has chosen Senator Sani Danladi as a leader of the movement.
Hon. Ade, however, enjoined Nigerians to carry the movement as a collective task and support the Presidential ambition of Senator Bola Tinubu come 2023 for a better Nigeria. NNL.
