2023: Lagos APC hails youths for rallying in support of Tinubu

By Adeyemi Adeleye, Lagos.

 

The Lagos State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday commended the youth for their massive turnout at the rally organised in support of the party’s presidential candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu and his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shetima.

 

The Eko Youth Walk, organised by Tinubu support groups, started from Maryland at 7.00a.m. and saw youths walking through Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, Joel Ogunaike Street, Oba Akinjobi Street and terminated at the Police College.

 

The walk was also to show support for the re-election of Lagos State Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his running mate, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, in 2023 general elections.

 

The Lagos State APC Publicity Secretary, Mr Seye Oladejo, in a statement, said the party acknowledged the show of support and was motivated by the turnout of the youth at the rally.

 

“The success of the rally is a clear statement and demonstration of the preference of our teeming youths, as regards the choices before them.

 

“It underscores a clear understanding of the manifesto of our presidential candidate, which is essentially a commitment to youth development, empowerment and a guarantee of a bright future, under a progressive government.

 

“The support for Sanwo-Olu/Hamzat is a vote of confidence in a promising second term, as a result of a highly successful first term of office.

 

“It is noteworthy that the youths mobilised human and material resources towards the success of the rally, to harness their collective strength towards a great cause,” he said.

 

The spokesman said that the party equally appreciated “the contributions of the womenfolk, artisans, market men and women and other stakeholders towards our common lofty goals.”

 

Oladejo urged all and sundry to remain undaunted, as the nation was counting down towards the 2023 elections.
