The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and former Super Eagles player and manager, Daniel Amokachi, met in Kaduna State on Monday (today).

Naija News reports that Tinubu arrived in Kaduna earlier today ahead of APC’s mega rally scheduled for Tuesday in the State.

The Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai first received the presidential hopeful at the Dana Air wing of the Nigerian Airbase in the state before meeting other dignitaries.

On Tinubu’s entourage is his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima, and other top party leaders led by the director-general of the campaign and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong.

Naija News understands that Amokachi has not hidden his support for the former Governor of Lagos who is hoping to become the next president of Nigeria after President Muhammadu Buhari.

‘Do Not Embarrass Buhari, Vote Tinubu Only’ – Shehu Tells Daura, Katsina Residents

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has urged residents of Daura in Katsina State to support Tinubu in the forthcoming 2023 election.

Naija News reports that Shehu made the call during the weekend at a meeting with the APC presidential campaign council members in Katsina with President Buhari’s nephew, Alhaji Musa Haro, in attendance.

Earlier at the meeting, Haro, who is the District Head of Dumurkol, declared that his people would give maximum support to the APC presidential candidate and governorship candidate of the state.

In his address, Shehu charged the people to be firm with their promises so they would save the president from embarrassment.

While reacting to the ongoing campaign for the APC governorship candidate in the state, the presidential aide said he is confident that the exercise is a journey of success for the ruling party in Katsina and across the country.

Representing President Buhari at the event, Shehu said: “I work with some people in the campaign train, and they proved that they have the capacity and they will never fail.

“Coming to campaign here, it’s just to thank the people of Dumurkol because they need no lecture on whom to vote for to succeed Buhari in 2023.”

Do Not Campaign For Any Politician In The Opposition Camp

Shehu further urged the people not to campaign for any politician from the opposition camp claiming to be with Buhari. He stressed that Dumurkol, Daura or the entire Katsina will market only APC in the forthcoming election.

”Vote for Asiwaju and Shettima for President and Vice-President, Dikko Radda and Jobe for governor and also vote for Nasiru Sani as your Senator and other APC legislators.

“Vote for APC from top to bottom; whoever comes here after decamping to another party and says he is with President Buhari, he is a liar; he is not with Buhari; it’s APC all the way,” the presidential aide said.
