The group assured Nigerians that Tinubu, who it described as the architect of the modern mega city called Lagos, will develop Nigeria if he wins the presidency.
Nagode said their support for Tinubu is because of his leadership qualities, adding that the support essentially coming from the north has become necessary in order to reciprocate the support and contributions the former Lagos governor made for Muhammadu Buhari to become president in 2015 and 2019.
The IPSO National Coordinator, who inaugurated the North Western States executives of the group in Kano, expressed the group’s readiness to lead campaign and mobilise massive support for Tinubu to ensure he clinches the APC presidential ticket.
He also assured of over 10 million votes from the Northwest at the general polls if their favourite candidate (Tinubu) wins the primaries.
“IPSO’s agenda, under the founder Chief Murtala Tela Awolola, is to deliver an APC presidential candidate to Nigeria in 2023 and Tinubu remains the only tested candidate in the south who can be entrusted with the country’s leadership responsibilities,” he said.
The group also suggested that the APC should pick Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state as Tinubu’s running mate for the 2023 presidential poll.
