2023: Massive Turn Out For Tinubu’s Campaign Rally In Kwara Is A Sign Of Acceptance – APC Chieftains Claim
The Kwara Coordinator, Tinubu Presidential Campaign Ambassador in Diaspora, Adedoyin Abdulateef has described the massive turn out at the Tinubu’s campaign rally in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital
as a sign of acceptance and love for the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
Naija News earlier on Tuesday reported that many of Tinubu’s supporters came out in their numbers to show their support for the former Lagos State Governor.
This is despite the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari who was billed to lead the campaign but is currently out of the country on another assignment.
The APC had earlier on Monday announced a postponement of the rally due to Buhari’s absence but minutes after the initial announcement, the party disclosed that the rally would proceed on Tuesday (today) as planned.
Our correspondent observed that the Metropolitan Square venue of the campaign was besieged by a large crowd of supporters of the Tinubu/Shettima ticket in Kwara State.
The residents of the state trooped out in their numbers to welcome the APC presidential candidate as he, his running mate Kashim Shettima, the party chairman Abdullahi Adamu, Information and Culture Minister, Lai Mohammed, and other chieftains arrived in Ilorin, the state capital.
The APC delegation was received at the airport by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.
Reacting to the large turn out of supporters, Abdulateef noted that “As you can see, the venue is filled up even ahead of time. It is a sign of love and acceptance for our candidate.
“People love our party and our candidates. We are optimistic of winning landslide come February.”
Also reacting to the development was a party chieftain, identified as Yusuf Babatunde, who said the turnout was a warning to other candidates that Tinubu /Shetima are the people’s choice.
Babatunde remarked that the mood at the venue was lively and a sign of hope for Nigerians.
