Plateau State Governor and Chairman of the Northern Governors Forum Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong has congratulated Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on his emergence as the Presidential standard bearer of the APC in the forth coming general elections.
Lalong in a message described the victory of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in the keenly contested APC Presidential Primaries as a well-deserved one considering his experience, capacity and investment in the growth of Nigeria’s democracy.
Governor Lalong said the overwhelming victory of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu at the Primaries vindicates the position of the APC Northern Governors that power should shift to the Southern part of the country in the interest of equity, justice and unity.
Lalong said the Jagaban has remained a colossus in the Nigerian political landscape since the military era where he coalesced with others to push for a return to civilian rule and also played a key role in the emergence of the APC which eventually ended the rule of the PDP.
He expressed confidence that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s victory represents the confidence of the party that he has all it takes to lead the APC into the general elections and ensure victory for the party in the Presidential and other elections.
While assuring him of support and collaboration for the battle ahead, Lalong urged him to use his wide reach and political sagacity to ensure that the process of reconciliation and enhancing unity is pursued with vigour and determination so as to enable the APC to retain power and consolidate on the legacies of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt Hon Ahmed Idris Wase congratulates Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his emergence as the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Umar Muhammad Puma, Wase described the process that led to the emergence Bola Tinubu as one of the most transparent in the country.
“Your emergence in a transparent process is a testament to the fact that the APC is now more united and stronger and has sent a strong message about our resolve to bring about the desired national transformation needed to turn around the fortunes of our beloved country Nigeria.
“By this convention and all the primary elections, we have demonstrated an uncommon desire to be different from the inefficiency and maladministration of the opposition PDP that have stunted our country’s march towards greatness.
“I am confident that the APC that will emerge from the outcome of the primaries will be one that will inspire hope, harness our potentials and lead us to prosperity,” the Deputy Speaker added.
While calling for all hands to be on deck to ensure the success of the APC in the 2023 general elections, Wase commended all the aspirants who contested against Tinubu for their maturity and sportsmanship.
