Rivers APC flags off presidential campaign for Tinubu

The All Progressives Congress (APC), led by Senator Magnus Abe, has launched a campaign in support of former Lagos State Governor Bola Tinubu’s presidential bid, claiming that he is not too elderly to run.
The group added that it supports Tinubu because he is equipped to bring about the required changes in the country and might outperform President Muhammadu Buhari, who is older than him.
Wilson Ake, a former senator from Rivers West, announced this yesterday at Abe’s campaign headquarters in Port Harcourt, Freedom House.
“We are supporting Tinubu because we know that he is eminently qualified and he has worked so hard to see APC win,” he said.
“We don’t have that wicked spirit in us, which is why we are saying we must pay back Tinubu what he has put into APC.
We are not against anybody who wants to try. Anybody who wants to try should go ahead, but they shouldn’t feel they must eliminate Tinubu to succeed…”
Similarly, another APC chieftain, Tony Okocha, who is the state coordinator, BAT Support Vanguard, disclosed that the Abe-led faction of APC in the state is rooting for Tinubu in 2023 to ensure he emerges the party flag bearer and eventually, the country’s president.
Okocha said: “We are here to sensitise our people and to thank the National Assembly for approving that power should go back to the people by the decision that direct primaries should be adopted in the selection of whoever will represent us…
“We know he has the Mida’s touch. We know he is competent; we know that he is experienced and we know that he is detribalised. So, if we have a nationalist like that, why won’t we support him?…”
