The Arewa community in Southwest has said it will support the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to defeat his counterpart in People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and others in 2023.
The association vowed to work for the emergence of Tinubu in 2023 because he is the best candidate for the presidency.
Speaking over the weekend at the end of a meeting of stakeholders, Chairman of APC Southwest Arewa Community, Alh Sa’adu Yusuf Dandare, said: “We had a northerner who contested in All Nigerians People’s Party (ANPP) against Obasanjo in 2003, the same way Obasanjo defeated him, we are going to apply it for Tinubu to defeat Atiku.
“None of us will campaign for Atiku. Everybody knows that whatever we say we want to do, we shall do and whatever we say we won’t do, we shall not do. That is how we are. Fashola can testify to it because we gave him over 1.5m of our votes.
“Our mission is to sensitize our people who have registered to collect their Permanent Voters Card (PVC), if we say we love Tinubu, we must ensure that Tinubu/Shettima ticket wins.”
