Nigeria’s Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has expressed confidence that the All Progressives Congress will win the 2023 presidential election with its standard bearer and his running mate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima respectively.
Fidel Info reports that Lawan boasted in his goodwill message at a special dinner organized for patrons and advisors of the APC at the Campaign Headquarters in Abuja.
The Campaign Patrons and Advisers are made up of former governors, National Assembly members, ministers, accomplished politicians, and former senior appointees of the Federal Government.
In his address, the Senate President attributed his confidence in Tinubu and Shettima to their achievements in their various political journeys.
He said, “The APC is on its way to winning the elections with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kashim Shettima who are great Nigerians that have achieved a lot in their various political journeys.”
Addressing the participants, Tinubu described the campaign patrons as politicians of repute who have worked hard for the party and sacrificed so much for the growth of democracy in Nigeria.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by Dr. Makut Macham, Director of Press and Public Affairs to the Director General of APC Presidential Campaign Council, Gov Simon Lalong.
Tinubu expressed delight that they are fully behind him and his vision to give Nigeria a ‘Renewed Hope’ to make it better.
The former governor reassured them that when elected, he will do his best to tap the experience, knowledge, and skills of technocrats from various parts of the country to address the challenges of the nation.
Shettima also applauded the audience, saying the wide acceptance of his joint ticket with the APC national leader demonstrates that Nigeria’s are moving beyond the politics of ethnicity and religious sentiments to considering capacity and excellence.
Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, who seemed impressed with the dinner reception, appreciated the campaign patrons and advisers over their conviction to support the Tinubu-Shettima ticket.
“While promising to do his best to carry all Nigerians along, the campaign DG said the PCC members have vast experience, connections, and followership to ensure the campaign does not derail.
