Senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial District and wife of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Oluremi Tinubu, has urged greater support for the aspiration of her husband, saying Nigeria is too important to be left to inexperienced hands.
Tinubu also made a strong case for women and youths who she said are important to the political process and urged young members of the APC to mobilize their peers for the success of the presidential campaign.
She made the appeal in a welcome address at the young leaders’ summit, Sunday, in Abuja.
Tinubu, who was represented at the event by Nana Shettima, wife of the APC’s vice presidential candidate, acknowledged the role of young people in promoting the party, urging them to concentrate their efforts on grassroots mobilisation.
She said: “Right from the formation of the APC, young people have been at the forefront of promoting our party and our candidates. Even now, with campaigns yet to kick off, the youth energy can be felt with the many youth-led initiatives promoting the candidature of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima.
“I hereby urge all our youth leaders and youth-focused support groups, many of whom are represented here today, to ensure that efforts to mobilise support for the Tinubu/Shettima presidential campaign are targeted at the grassroots – right from our polling units to our wards and local governments – as that is where the real voters are.”
