“We wish to inform Mr. President that we have also been actively mobilizing support for the party at the grassroots levels across the 19 northern states in preparation for the 2023 general elections.
“Mr. President, in the course of our daily engagements, across the northern states, we have been inundated with an astronomical level of support for the presidential aspiration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“His acceptance level amongst the grassroots is phenomenal. One might be tempted to think he has his origin from the north.
“As a group with a vast network amongst youths and women in the 19 northern states in the county, including the Federal Capital Territory, we can say without fear or favour that Tinubu is widely accepted as the prime candidate for our great party in the coming 2023 general elections.
“This is on the heels that he has been able to build bridges across the country in service to the country and humanity through ways too numerous to mention.”
The group said that after extensive deliberations and consultations, its members have elected to adopt Tinubu as the consensus presidential candidate of the APC in the 2023 general elections.
Dauda said it is the firm conviction of the group that the candidature of Tinubu is well in place for guaranteed victory for the APC because of his broad appeal across religious groups and ethnicities.
He added that there is no gainsaying that Tinubu is a well-loved and adored Nigerian whose antecedence speaks volumes of selfless service to the country right from 1999 in his capacity as the executive governor of Lagos state.
