- The campaign for the 2023 presidency has begun across the country
- In Ondo, a group has been inaugurated to push the candidacy of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu
- The Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT) Network Vision is the political platform that would help sell the Tinubu agenda in Ondo state
Supporters of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu have stormed Akure, the Ondo state capital to solicit the support of the people of the state as they continue their Tinubu-for-president campaign ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
The supporters of the former Lagos state governor, are made up of politicians and non-politicians from all the 18 local government areas of the state.
They are operating under the political platform known as Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT) Network Vision which was inaugurated in the state on Monday, October 28.
The group declared that Tinubu is the best person to lead the country, describing him as a political strategist and grassroots mobiliser.
Speaking at the event, the coordinator of the group in the state, Akinlolu Ayodele maintained that the BAT vision was a network movement to showcase the values and promote the essence of Tinubu’s leadership qualities.
He said the meeting was to garner all minds together under the umbrella of BAT network vision, focusing on how Tinubu will attain victory as Nigeria’s president in 2023.
According to him, the platform would be used to test run the 2020 governorship election poll in the state to test its capacity.
On his part, a former Ondo state commissioner for physical planning and urban development, Sola Amodeni, extolled the leadership virtues of Tinubu, saying his leadership qualities are needed at the national level.
He said: “I believe in Tinubu’s vision; through his leadership at the national level of governance, Nigeria will not be the same in handling the menace of unemployment, insecurity and economic stagnation.”
The former commissioner emphasised that the present hardship in the country especially …economy and security did not start with the ruling APC.
“Eight years of the administration of Buhari cannot even solve the multi-dimensional problem in the country. He is just laying the foundation that the likes of Tinubu can build on solidly if he is given the mandate to rule after 2023,” he added.
Meanwhile, former deputy national chairman of the APC, Senator Annie Okonkwo, has stated that it is the turn of the Igbos to produce Nigeria's next president in 2023.
Okonkwo, who said the presidency has always been a north and south affair, noted that Igbos are excelling in many fields and can put Nigeria back on track.
