Presidential Candidate Opens N’Central Campaign Office
Stalwarts of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital, have stated that Nigeria, more than ever before, needs a man like Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to move the country to a greater height.
Speaking separately at the inauguration of the North Central Agenda for Asiwaju/Shetima (NCAA) were Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, Senator Dayo Adeyeye, National Chairman, South West Agenda for Asiwaju, SWAGA, Hon. Oyetunde Ojo, National Convener, SWAGA, and Hon Ayo Omidiran, the South West group’s national women leader.
According to Governor AbdulRazaq, who was represented by Hon Raji Rasak, the Commissioner for Health, the party in the state would work for Tinubu the same way it worked for President Mihammadu Buhari.
“It’s not about money. It is about our commitment,” he said.
On his part, Adeyeye said that Asiwaju has been prepared for the task of delivering the country long before now.
“Nigeria needs Tinubu now because he did not start preparing to be president yesterday.
“It has been his plans for a very long time and he knows exactly what to do.
“I can assure you that banditry and other social and economic menace would be a thing of the past as soon as Tinubu wins and assumes power,” Adeyeye said.
In his own speech at the inauguration, Ojo went down memory lane, saying that countries at different times of difficulties had called upon unique leaders like Asiwaju to save them.
“In the US, it was Roosevelt who was physically challenged and who led Americans through World War Two,” Ojo said.
NCAA was set up through collaboration from SWAGA as campaign office for the candidature of Asiwaju/Shetima mandate.
The office, a massive two storey complex along Umaru Audi road, GRA, Ilorin, is expected to be a beehive of political activities in the next five months before the general elections and beyond.
