A group, the Advocates for Bola Ahmed Tinubu (A4BAT) has described the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress( APC), Bola Tinubu, as the best candidate from the South West to fly the party’s flag in the 2023 election.
A newspaper publication had claimed the the South-West is favoured to produce the next APC presidential standard-bearer while the North-East is said to have been listed for the running mate ticket.
Reacting, Dr Okoye Nobert Tochukwu, National Chairman of A4BAT described Tinubu as the best candidate from the region to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Tochukwu also enjoined Buhari to reciprocate the firm support the APC leader gave him in the South West which largely resulted in his victory in the 2015 presidential election.
He recalled that it was the vote from the region that gave Buhari the needed spread to be declared winner of the election, adding that it was time for the President to reward the tremendous support of Tinubu for the 2023 presidential election.
“The zoning of presidency by APC is a welcome development cause this is the only way to repay Tinubu for his sacrifices for the country.
“We are sure if Tinubu emerges as the candidate of APC at the primaries, he will win in 2023 easily and be sworn in on 29th May, 2023.
“We also urge President Buhari to support him. We are also advising the Vice President professor Yemi osinbajo to join hands with president Buhari to make sure that Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT) becomes the next presidential flag bearer”
