From Fred Itua, Abuja
A group, Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BATCO) Mandate Group, on Thursday), held a rally in Lagos, to show solidarity and support for the candidature of Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kashim Shettima to win next year’s presidential election.
The walk, which had over 100,000 participants, was from Ikeja to Ojota through Maryland. It was led by an APC stalwart in the state, Abdullahi Ayinde Enilolobo, and was also to show the group’s full backing to the second term bid of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
The group is strongly affiliated to the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
Addressing the teeming members of the group and thousands of party faithful, the leader of the group, Senator Solomon Adeola (Yayi), represented by Alhaji Ayinde said Nigeria at this point deserves no less a leader than Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who has the requisite knowledge and experience to govern Nigeria at a time like this.
He downplayed the various propaganda targeted at the APC Presidential Candidate, noting that Tinubu remains the most popular, sellable and capable candidate to lead the country and ensure that the successes of the current administration are not eroded.
The BATCO Mandate Group leader, also used the medium to sensitise voters on the need to get their PVCs and vote for the APC in the 2023 General Elections at all levels.
The BATCO Mandate Group will in the coming days and weeks extend the walk to other parts of Lagos, to canvass votes for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
