Ex Governor Ibikunle Amosun

ABEOKUTA Ex Gov. Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun on Thursday organised a political rally in Abeokuta  to mobilise support  for the Presidential ambition of Bola Tinubu,  the National eader of the All Progressive  Congress (APC).

The News Agency of Nigeria  (NAN) reports that Tinubu  emerged as the presidential  candidate of the APC for the 2023 elections at the party’s presidential  primary in Abuja from June 6 to June 8.

Amosun, who addressed a mammoth crowd at the Ake Palace in Abeokuta, said he organised the rally to motivate support

for the election  of Tinubu as Nigeria’s  next president.

The former governor explained that he sacrificed his presidential ambition and supported Tinubu  in the interest of the south-west region in particular  and the nation in general.

“Our Yoruba elders had called us that if we really want the presidency to return to the south-west region, we must look for a way to be united.

“I have also told my close associates  about two years ago that I desired to be president  of  the  nation but that my ambition  cannot supercede or overide the general interest of the south-west or the entire nation,” he said.

Amosun noted that the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration  had made tremendous achievements in repositioning the nation.

He,  however,  expressed concern that instead of focusing on the many great achievements of the administration, many people chose to concentrate on the issue of insecurity.

The former governor stated that the challenges facing Nigeria were not insurmountable.

Amosun, who eulogised the qualities of  Tinubu, noted that he had the wherewithal to sustain the developmental stride of Buhari and also take the nation to enviable height.

He urged his supporters to extend their loyalty, support and prayers for him to Tinubu and the APC at large.

“We do not have another country except Nigeria and I am sure Nigeria will be great.

“”We all need to join hands and collaborate with and support Tinubu to succeed Buhari.

“Tinubu will still move around the entire country to campaign and he will definitely  come to Ogun and visit places like Ilaro, Ijebu, Abeokuta  and other places to solicit your support.

“Let us please support him to win the 2023 presidential election,” he said. (NAN)
