Streets in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT Abuja were on Sunday covered with campaign posters of the former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Supporters of the All Progressive Congress (APC) National Leaders displayed strong support for the politician with different colourful images of the former Lagos State governor pasted in strategic locations in the FCT.
Some of the strategic locations include the highbrow Maitama District, the Central Business District, as well as areas around the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress.
Some of the posters had captions such as “TinubuNe”, “Happy Democracy Day, Tinubu Advocates Group,” “Jagaban Nigeria” among others. Although Jagaba as he is also known as is yet to publicly declare his intention to join the 2023 Presidential race, several support groups have brazed up for the APC chieftain.
Meanwhile, a group that identified itself as Disciples of Jagaban had said in Abuja that it will drag Tinubu into the 2023 presidential race. According to the National President of the group, Abdulhakeem Alawuje, Tinubu is the most suited person to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking to reporters in Abuja, Alawuje said, “The peace, love, unity and harmony of this country has never been disturbed like this.
“All this is happening just for those crooked politicians to disorganize us, but unfortunately for them we have gone far ahead of all their evil strategies.
“We are supporting Tinubu and calling on him, begging him, inviting him to contest the 2023 presidential election for the benefit of Nigeria and Nigerians.
“You can believe me that Tinubu has laboured so much for the development of this country. We all know how he laboured to give us President Muhammadu Buhari. We need continuity. We need somebody that will continue and consolidate on the achievements President Buhari is making. We need somebody that knows the house, and that is Bola Tinubu.”
