As electioneering campaign for the 2023 elections gather momentum, a group under the aegis of the Northern Yoruba Agenda for Tinubu, NOYAT has assured the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu of 20 million votes.
The group as well pledged it’s unalloyed support for the actualisation of Tinubu’s presidential ambition.
Speaking at a peace summit and special prayer session for Tinubu, alongside Kaduna state APC gubernatorial candidate, Senator Uba Sani in Kaduna, the National Coordinator of the group, Hon. AbdulRasheed Adekeye explained that the group’s support for Tinubu and Shettima was based on their track records.
“We have the network across the 19 northern states, including the Federal Capital Territory. We also have mechanism put in place across the northern region to sensitize citizens on reasons Tinubu should be the next president of the country come 2023.”
According to the national coordinator, NOYAT’s position to support the APC presidential candidate was based on principles and ideological conviction and not on tribal sentiments.
“We decided to pitch tent with Tinubu in the spirit of fairness, equity and justice, as it was already demonstrated by the Northern APC Governors.”
“We are never in doubt of Tinubu and Shettima’s capacity to lead the country to an enviable position that will meet the yearnings of Nigerians,” Adekeyele emphasized.
He therefore called on Nigerians to support the presidential ambition of Tinubu, adding that, Nigerians must not allow themselves to be used by selfish politicians who do not mean well for the country.
Also, a video CD dedicated to Tinubu was also launched at the event and a
special prayer was observed on behalf of Tinubu, Shettima and Sani with notable northern based Yoruba clerics and traditional title holders in attendance seeking God’s favour for victory.
