The All Progressives Congress (APC) has issued a letter of recognition to Bola Tinubu’s support group, Nigeria Diaspora for Aṣíwájú (NDA).
The letter means the group was recognized as one of the support groups within the party.
Mr. Omọ́gbọ́láhàn Babawale, Nigeria Coordinator of the NDA confirmed the development on Monday.
Babawale said the letter, dated October 18th, 2021, and titled: ‘Letter of Recognition as Support Group’, with reference number NDA/ONC/DG/OLAB/10/em02 and signed by APC Director of Administration, Alhaji Abubakar Suleiman, meant a lot to the NDA, because it would boost the morale of its members and spur them to do more to enthrone a Tinubu presidency in 2023.
He added that the recognition of the group further justifies its assurance that the realization of a Tinubu presidency is possible in 2023.
Babawale said the letter of recognition could not have come at a better time than now that the Senate has passed the Electoral Act on electronic transmission of voting results.
He expressed gratitude to the Chairman, Director-General, Coordinators, Directors, and members of the NDA for their steadfastness, support, and for remaining focused on the objectives of the group.
He said Tinubu’s teeming supporters which spread across the country’s six geo-political zones could not wait to have him declare his intention for the 2023 presidential election.
“We are all on our marks, getting ready for the whistle to blow,” Babawale said, adding that members of the NDA are eager to hit the ground running.
He added that with the right visionary leadership, woven around the tripod of vision, passion and action, NDA is convinced that Tinubu is the best person to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
Babawale said these are measurable in terms of deliverables during his tenure as the Governor of Lagos State and his giant strides within the APC.
He prayed that God should keep Tinubu in good health and grant him strength and the needed wisdom ahead of the 2023 presidential elections.
According to Babawale, Tinubu stands out as one politician with the best résumé to consolidate on the next level milestones of the President Buhari-led administration.
