Don’t mess up ‘golden chance’, supporters’ group tells APC

One of the support groups for All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential aspirant, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Nigerians Unite for Tinubu (NUT), has charged the party’s leadership not to miss the opportunity of the current political situation in the country to elect Tinubu as President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor.

The group appealed in a statement yesterday by its Convener Muhammed Mustapha Yusuf.

In the statement, titled: A Passionate Appeal: The Dire Need for APC Not To Bungle The Golden Chance, which was addressed to APC national leadership, NUT said the party must be careful in the choice of its presidential candidate.

It advised the delegates to elect only the most popular and widely acceptable aspirant among the 24 jostling for the party’s ticket.

NUT advised APC to avoid the type of mistake the PDP has made by giving its ticket to former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, a northerner when zoning of the seat is supposed to go to the South.

It described the current scenario as a “golden chance” for the APC to field a credible candidate that is widely accepted across the country.

Also, the Nigeria Diaspora for Asiwaju (NDA) has said Asiwaju Tinubu is the only one qualified to be President Buhari’s successor.

NDA’s National Spokesperson Ayobami Oyalowo said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday in Abuja.
