Tinubulate Nigeria Agenda (TINA), a political youth group, has called on Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to contest the 2023 presidential election.

Samuel Alamoh, director-general of the group, stated this at a media briefing in Abuja on Friday.

The group also presented a dummy cheque of N10 million to demonstrate their commitment to support Tinubu, should he accept to contest the election.

According to Alamoh, the sum is for Tinubu to purchase the expression of interest and nomination forms when the party commences sales.

In June 2020, Tinubu had said contrary to speculations, he has not taken a decision to run for president in 2023.

The former governor of Lagos said, at the time, that he was more worried about the health and economic challenges facing the country.

But TINA said they are confident that he would lead a government “with comprehensive policies that encompass monumental infrastructural and human development with unprecedented economic growth”.

“This support group was founded in line and in support of consolidating President Muhammadu Buhari’s achievements in all sectors of the Nigerian economy and democratic development,” the group said.

“As good citizens committed to the progress, unity and stability of Nigeria, it is our inalienable right to throw our weight and give our unrelenting support to any individual capable of bringing about good, exemplary, responsive and progressive leadership.

“Tinubu’s transformational leadership acumen, outstanding managerial skills, and futuristic orientation stand him out among all.

“We are convinced beyond every reasonable doubt that he possesses all the qualities, capacities, and experiences needed to actualise the Nigeria of our dream and aspirations of the citizens.

“We are not unaware that the task is onerous and enormous; it demands the collective efforts of all Nigerians of good conscience, love, and passion for a progressive and prosperous Nigeria.”

Alamoh said, as a group, they are already consulting and gathering the needed support.

“Our group has concluded plans to present the cheque to Tinubu for the purchase of the expression of interest and nomination forms to run for the presidency, when the party commences the sale of the forms,” he said.

“Though Asiwaju Tinubu has millions of supporters, followers who are always ready to come together to pay for his nomination form, our members, supporters, well-wishers and followers across Nigeria believe in shared responsibility.

“That is why we have to pool our meagre resources together for this noble course, if he formally declares his interest to be chosen as candidate of our great party, APC, for the coming presidential election in 2023.’’

Alamoh added that the group is preparing to inaugurate its chapters in all the six geopolitical zones by March.

In December 2020, Tinubu’s supporters set up a presidential campaign council for him ahead of the 2023 general election.

    It is frying 🍳 to fire. The minority thought they can mislead majority, people have already woke up. Moreso, Nigerians are not Lagosian where they can be easily manouvere. Even, what’s on ground pass that now, Northerners have stopped from bringing their products to the south instead of addressing the cause of insecurities in the country. Youths advocating for him couldn’t talk on it too, himself don’t have suggestions or solution, but 2023. 😂😂😂😂😂
