The Presidential Support Committee (PSC) has congratulated the winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential primary, Sen Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
LEADERSHIP reported that Tinubu defeated 12 aspirants to emerge the candidate of the APC at its national convention held at Eagle Square in Abuja Wednesday.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja, national publicity secretary, Dr Muhammad Kailani, said the group commended the former minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio for stepping down for Tinubu, adding that his support, especially the 92 votes from his home State of Akwa Ibom, help in uniting the party.
“We commend Senator, Godswill Obot Akpabio for stepping down from the race and being the first to publicly join forces with His Excellency Senator Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu to achieve the landmark electoral victory,” Kailani said, adding that the PSC delegates were duly profiled by Akpabio presidential campaign organization at the Rockview Hotel, Abuja, and handed over to Tinubu.
“The PSC glorifies God Almighty- the maker and unmaker of kings and hereby wishes our Presidential Candidate, divine protection, good health, and good fortune in all his endeavors and good plans for a Great Country, Nigeria.
“The Presidential Support Committee (PSC) appreciates the challenges ahead and shall as usual, dutifully mobilize our membership nationwide and in the diaspora to do the needful.
“We wish to call on the entire Presidential Support Committee (PSC) members and indeed, over 40 million registered members of our great party, APC to evolve internal mechanisms for the mass mobilization of Nigerian voters for the support of senator Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to give victory to (APC) in the 2023 general elections”, he added.
