The All Progressives Congress (APC) youths in South-East and South-South regions on Thursday began jogging from Yenogoa to Lagos to drum support for the party presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
The youths who are under the South-East/South-South Jogging for Tinubu Campaign Initiative, constituted a team of fitness enthusiasts who plan to embark on a 6-day exercise.
The jogging was flagged-off at the Bayelsa secretariat of APC by the Bayelsa Chairman of the party, Dr Dennis Otiotio
Speaking to the youths, Otiotio applauded the youngsters for their decision to march for the APC flag bearer, adding that it was evident that the youths want Tinubu as the next president of the country.
He noted that sports remained a veritable tool for youth development and mass mobilisation, which brought youths from 11 states of the South-East and South-South geopolitical zones.
He praised the youths for initiating the jogging from Yenagoa, an indication of the support from the State for Tinubu’s presidency.
The State APC chairman insisted that Tinubu’s past record as Governor of Lagos state shows that he is capable and qualified to take over the presidency.
The Coordinator of the support group, Mr Sam Adaga, had earlier told Otiotio that the 25-member team has at least two representatives from each of the 11 States in the South-East and South-South and the executive members of the group.
