Alamoh said:

“Our group has concluded plans to present the cheque to Tinubu for the purchase of the expression of interest and nomination forms to run for the presidency when the party commences the sales of the forms.
“Though Asiwaju Tinubu has millions of supporters, followers who are always ready to come together to pay for his nomination form, our members, supporters, well-wishers, and followers across Nigeria believe in shared responsibility.
“That is why we have to pool our meager resources together for this noble course, if he formally declares his interest to be chosen as candidate of our great party, APC, for the coming presidential election in 2023.’’

Alamoh described TINA as a group of reputable Nigerians, young professionals in diverse fields with passion and commitment to drive togetherness, love, and peaceful coexistence among Nigerians.
