Why we’re supporting Tinubu – Jonathan’s kinsmen

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has continued to gather massive endorsements across the country.

Recently, the major supporters and kinsmen of former President Goodluck Jonathan declared their support for the APC presidential candidate.

Members of the support group, under the auspices of Citizens Network for Peace and Development in Nigeria (CNPDN), told reporters in Abuja that since Dr. Jonathan did not join the 2023 presidential race, despite their persistent prodding, the right thing to do was to support Asiwaju Tinubu.

The coalition’s National Secretary Francis Okereke Wainwei, from Bayelsa State, told reporters that as patriotic citizens, members of the coalition could not refrain from participating in the nation’s electoral process.

Wainwei said: “As patriotic citizens, under the auspices of the Citizens Network For Peace and Development in Nigeria, we took it up as a burning need for us to be actively involved in the process leading to the election of Nigeria’s next president, who shall be taking over from President Muhammadu Buhari next year.

“We consider it as very important and necessary because Nigeria needs a truly visionary, competent, and detribalized leader to enthrone a more united, peaceful, and prosperous nation…

“We went further to examine the capacity, competence, political experience, and nationwide acceptability of the presidential candidates from Southern Nigeria and we discovered that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, tops the other candidates.

“We hereby declare our total support for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, as our preferred candidate for the office of President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, come 2023.”
