A son of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Seyi, on Thursday visited Alhaji Abdullahi Bodejo, National President, Miyetti-Allah Kautal Hore Association.
The visit, in company of members of City Boy Youth Movement (CBYM), a Tinubu/Shettima support group, was to seek the association’s support for the presidential bid of his father.
The young Tinubu also called on the youth to vote for the APC during the February 25 and March 11 general elections for renewed hope for Nigeria.
Seyi said: “Let us all go and collect our PVCs before the deadline and vote APC. A vote for Tinubu/Shettima will carry the youth along as a priority as stated in their manifesto.”
Tinubu also stated his unreserved gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for endorsing his father as the APC presidential candidate and his running mate, Kashim Shettima.
He further said that the youth wing of the APC/City Boy Youth Movement would always work with the Fulanis in ensuring that the APC won the general election.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Seyi was conferred with the chieftaincy title of “Sokajo Fulbe” (the Ambassador of the Fulani Youth).
Leader of the youth movement, Favour Abayomi, who also canvased the support of Miyetti-Allah, described Tinubu and Shettima as the best candidates for the presidency.
In his response, Bodejo said that the association’s decision to endorse and support the candidacy of Tinubu/Shetima, was due to the group’s community engagement with stakeholders and community leaders across the country.
He urged the group to remain focused to ensure victory of the APC during the polls. (NAN)
