Associates of the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Tinubu has floated a campaign structure for him in Lagos.
Named Bola Ahmed Tinubu Support Organisation (BTSO), the National Coordinator, Mallam Abubakar Kuso and Deputy Coordinator, Dr. Segun Iroko, said the move was to ensure that the right platform was put in place for the actualization of rumoured presidential bid of the former Lagos State governor.
Speaking at the formal inauguration of the group at the weekend, the Lagos State Coordinator, Hajia Risi Sanusi said that the organisation was founded in September 2019 and has since been registered as a non-governmental body to promote the ideologies and mentorship of Bola Ahmed Tinubu leadership qualities.
He said that the organisation’s mandate was beyond the 2023 election, saying: “We have pre-election and post-election programmes. After Tinubu becomes the president, the organisation will advise and remind him of the promises made to the people.”
“We saw the role Asiwaju played in making one of us Muhammad Buhari become the President. It is our duty the northerners to stand by him because he stood by us a hundred per cent. So, I am standing here as a youth to talk on behalf of Nigerian youths that we are in support of Asiwaju for presidency come 2023.
