The supporters’ group of Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu for the 2023 presidency, under the auspices of Disciplines of Jagaban, (DOJ), has raised the alarm over alleged moves by what it called ‘cabals’ in the corridors of power to work on the newly elected National Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, to truncate presidential ambition of Tinubu.
According to an issued statement by the National Coordinator of DOJ, AbdulHakeem Adegoke Alawuje, the group said it suspects that the APC National Chairman was already doing the bidding of the cabals, stressing that “Senator Adamu must tread with caution concerning Tinubu’s presidential ambition”.
The statement read in part: ‘It’s pertinent for our new chairman of APC to realise the consequence of working against the popular candidate for the ruling party, because only a politically-naive will undermine the spirit and the force behind Asiwaju’s movement on the path to Aso Rock, come 2023.
“Adamu needs to be schooled that working to undermine Tinubu, as already been seen in some quarters, amounts to political naivety and unreasonability; for it can only spell doom for the party.
“Senator Adamu should equally note that those working against Tinubu are true enemies of the nation and the APC, because they know that Tinubu remains the only candidate the opposition will have a Herculean task to defeat”.
The group, therefore, urged the Chairman not to be intimidated by the position being presently occupied by all former and current disciples of Jagaban.
It further said, “To the masses, Tinubu remains the highly generous, beneficial, and caring politician who is not only loved by people but has established himself in their minds; a true uncommon political sagacity across the country. He is also seen by many as an aspirant with a high capability to rescue Nigeria from the current security and economic quagmire”.
‘In the contemporary history of Nigeria, no political bigwig can be compared to Asiwaju in terms of political sagacity. The Jagaban Borgu, the strongest factor in present-day Nigerian politics, cannot just be undermined or dismissed with a wave of the hand, especially in the ruling party APC.
“After Buhari in 2023, it has to be Tinubu. If Tinubu submitted to Buhari in 2015, now it is time to support him. One good turn deserves another”, the group further stated.
