From: Segun Babatunde in Bauchi
A coalition of political pressure groups in Bauchi State under the umbrella of Tinubu Network for Grassroot Mobilisation for 2023 has stressed the need for Northerners to support Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s presidential ambition in 2023 to enable him take Nigeria to greater heights.
The group said it has become necessary for Northerners to reciprocate the gesture of the people of South-West, and in particular the dogged efforts of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in 2015 when they supported General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) to become the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria
The network has also commenced mobilization of groups and individuals across the state with a view to harmonizing the movement towards attracting more supporters.
To this end, the Group summoned a stakeholders meeting to devise an effective campaign strategy to ensure that the movement reached all the nook and crannies in the state.
Addressing the officials and members of the group in Bauchi held at the Conference Hall, Federal Secretariat, Bauchi, yesterday, the state Coordinator of the Group, Alhaji Bala Hassan Burga said they are ready to merge or cooperate with similar organizations that have the capability to add value to the struggle.
Burga noted that the state has a number of groups and associations supporting the APC National Leader considering his popularity hence the need to harmonize the movement to achieve the desired objective.
According to him, ” This is an extraordinary meeting aimed at reaching out to all the relevant campaign organisations in Bauchi, not only within the state capital but across all the 20 local government areas towards forming a formidable campaign team.
Also Speaking, a leader of the group,Alhaji Musa Khalid who outlined qualities of Bola Tinubu that qualified him to be the next Nigeria President explained that they made and informed him personally about the initiative and he expressed appreciation for the gesture
“We engaged Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu in a meeting where we discussed issues related to our commitment to ensure the actualization of his dream in 2023”
Khalid therefore urged APC National officials to produce a presidential candidate that can easily win election to allow consolidation on the success recorded by President Muhammadu Buhari led administration.
