…As APC youths to host ‘unity gathering’ for Tinubu in Abuja 

The All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Campaign Council has postponed the start of its campaigns earlier slated for Wednesday.

The Director-General of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council and Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau made this known in a statement on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, a prominent youth-led support group for the APC under the aegis of City Boy Movement, CBM, has announced plans to host two thousand young supporters of presidential candidate Bola Tinubu for a ‘unity gathering’ in Abuja.

In a statement on Tuesday, the group spokesman, Ojomu Taiwo-Hassan, said participants are expected to arrive at the Unity Fountain in Abuja on Wednesday by 8am, adding that the event promises to feature symposium, music and comedy.

The group, in partnership with National Coalition Group, NCG, said the event will bring together supporters of the ruling party and so many others outside the party who support Tinubu/Shettima presidential ticket.

This event which precedes the official opening of the campaign season is billed as the movement’s symbolic convergence and loud signal of its preparation to galvanize youth support for Tinubu /Shettima in his bid to emerge as the country’s next president in 2023.

Mr Hassan said: “It is a first of many, and a demonstration of our excitement and readiness to promote our candidates, Nigeria’s City Boy, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Golden Boy of Zenith, whose transformation of Lagos and unparalleled contributions to Nigeria’s development uniquely qualify him for the presidency.

“Thousands of young Nigerians have already thronged Abuja for the event. It will be loud, symbolic, and indicative of the obvious fact that Bola Ahmed Tinubu will sweep the youth votes in 2023.

“As a group, we consider the campaign of our candidates an obligation. We will knock on every door, speak to every Nigerian in all the languages they converse in, and travel across the length and breadth of this country to preach and win converts for Tinubu/Shettima.

“Our mission is helped by the fact that they are known and tested performers. And quite frankly, it is hard, if not impossible, to reject the advances of our candidates. We will not fail,” he added.
