Arrangement has been concluded for the conferment of the Grand Commander of African Politics title on the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, by the Coalition for a Better Nigeria, a body of Youths’ and Students’ Organisations within and outside Nigeria.
In a statement by the its National Coordinator, Comrade Awa Bamiji, the group said Tinubu would be conferred with the title on February 14, 2023.
He said the event will hold at the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council Headquarters, Opposite Bank of Industry, Wuse, Abuja, by 11am.
Awa said the occasion would also be used to mark the 30th anniversary of the annulment of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, adding that only 1000 people are expected to sit inside the hall, while millions of other people across the globe should watch the live coverage on TVC.
“We are seriously looking for a thinker, performer, problem solver, human and physical capacity developer to be our next President at this crucial period and we have seen all these qualities in APC Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Therefore, we must vote wisely,” he said.
Awa urged electorate to collect their permanent voter cards (PVCs) and cooperate with law enforcement agents and INEC officials to prevent violence and rigging.
He also admonished voters to embrace peace, unity and progress in order to have peaceful co-existence.
