A youth-led support group for the All Progressives Congress Presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice Presidential candidate Kashim Shettima has announced its readiness to play host to thousands of young supporters of the former Lagos Governor and his running mate at its Unity Gathering event slated for Wednesday, September 28, at the Unity Fountain in FCT Abuja.
This event which precedes the official opening of the campaign season is billed as the movement’s symbolic convergence and signal of its preparation to galvanize youth support for Tinubu in his bid to emerge as the country’s next president in 2023.

The organiser said participants are expected to arrive at the Unity Fountain in Abuja at 8am, adding that the event would feature a symposium, music and comedy.
According to the spokesperson of the organisation, Ojomu Taiwo Hassan, who announced the event via a press statement, “it is a first of many, and a demonstration of our excitement and readiness to promote our candidates, Nigeria’s City Boy, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Golden Boy of Zenith, whose transformation of Lagos and unparalleled contributions to Nigeria’s development uniquely qualify him for the presidency.
“Thousands of young Nigerians have already thronged Abuja for the event. It will be loud, symbolic, and indicative of the obvious fact that Bola Ahmed Tinubu will sweep the youth’s votes in 2023.
“As a group, we consider the campaign of our candidates an obligation. We will knock on every door, speak to every Nigerian in all the languages they converse in, and travel across the length and breadth of this country to preach and win converts for Tinubu/Shettima.
“Our mission is helped by the fact that they are known and tested performers. And quite frankly, it is hard, if not impossible, to reject the advances of our candidates. We will not fail,” he said.
