About 200 groups from the North Central part of the country have thrown their weight behind the Bola Ahmed Tinubu Presidency come 2023.

The group under the North Central Agenda for Tinubu, NCAT in a communique issued in Abuja after their meeting said Tinubu is their preferred choice from the array of aspirants that have indicated an interest in leading Nigeria.

The meeting was attended by representatives and leaders of the over 200 support groups from the north-central part of the country.

The President of the NCAT, John Ali Oriri, said at the meeting that participants have critically evaluated Tinubu’s aspiration.

He said, “Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu has declared his intention to contest the 2023 Presidential on the platform of the APC, other aspirants within the APC and other political parties have also indicated an interest in the same position.

“Asiwaju Tinubu has embarked on a nationwide consultation with various stakeholders and interest groups during which he has continued to unveil his vision for placing Nigeria on the path to economic sustainability and assert the country’s pivotal place in the world affairs.

“The former governor of Lagos State has proven that he is a great manager of resources, especially human resources, as he has mentored and groomed political leaders that have positively impacted Nigeria through the posts they have held or still holding.

“He has proven to be economically sound to get solutions to the challenges facing Nigeria.

“Tinubu has the wealth of experience and network that the country needs in its next President,” he added.

Oriri said there is an ongoing debate about zoning, with a preponderance of opinion tilted in favour of the southern part of the country producing the next President.

“Tinubu is fortunately from the south, although he is eminently qualified to be the next president even if zoning is not applied.

“The North-Central has the best chance of having their marginalization addressed when Asiwaju Bola Tinubu becomes president in 2023 and beyond.
“Among all the aspirants that have indicated an interest in the position, he is the only one that consistently proven that he is detribalized and liberal-minded to fully embrace the diversity needed to preside over Nigeria,” he said.

The North Central group further resolved that it will formally inform Tinubu that the decision to run for President is no longer his to make as Nigerians have resolved that he is the one to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari and take Nigeria to the Promised Land.
