A support group, Likeminds Initiative for Tinubu (LIV), said Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of All Progressives Congress(APC) is better qualified to lead Nigeria than any other presidential candidate.
Mr. Augustine Esiekpe, the National Coordinator of the group, said this at a strategic meeting to mobilize voters for Tinubu and Shettima.
According to him, Tinubu will do a better job as president than Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar.
Esiekpe said Tinubu has a better character than any other presidential candidate in the race.
He said former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar shouldn’t have joined the 2023 presidential race, because it was the turn of the South to rule.
“The North represented by President Muhammadu Buhari has had its eight years share, so what is Atiku looking for, where is he representing?
“The presidency should rotate between the North and the South because there must be justice, fairness, and equity.
“If we give Obi or Atiku, our future is not secured, we should look at Tinubu who is better with a record of performance to show,” he said.
He said the group would mobilize voters in the Federal Capital Territory to ensure a landslide victory for APC.
Speaking on mobilization, he said it was key to winning the election, adding that in Lagos people hardly vote but rather resort to playing football on election day.
He said that the group’s major work was to identify people with PVC and move them to vote on the day of the election, adding that it would also bring INEC officials to educate members on BVAS.
This according to him, would enable the group to sensitize others so they would understand the process on election day and would be able to educate others.
“The Obidient camp is doing this sensitization seriously. These are some of the sensitization we need to embark upon, campaign isn’t about gathering people at rallies, but going from place to place to sensitive voters.”
