As political activities in Nigeria gravitate towards the 2023 General election, a Pro-Tinubu support group, Asiwaju Unity Forum (AUF) held its inaugural meeting in Amuwo Odofin, Lagos State.

National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s democratic credentials have been described as impeccable by the group which is mentored by Captain Adebayo Dosunmu, an APC Stalwart.

AUF argued that Tinubu has distinguished himself over time as a champion of democracy during the military era and a consolidator of democracy under the present dispensation, saying “with such an antecedent, we cannot hope for a better President come 2023.”

In a communiqué at the end of the group’s meeting at the AUF campaign Secretariat in Lagos, said: “These and many more reasons have endeared Tinubu to us all. It is the reason why we are mobilizing Nigerians and all party delegates to vote for Tinubu into exalted office in the land.”

The presidential bid of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu again received another major boost as foremost Grassroot politician of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Capt Adebayo Dosumu fulfilled his earlier promise to donate towards the actualization of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu 2023 presidency.

Dosunmu made true his pledge in a recent visit to the National Leader of the All Progressive Congress where he personally handed a cheque of one million naira towards his ambition, a gesture which was highly commended and received personally by Asiwaju referring his gesture as that of a “deep thinker who values human relationship”.

The Amuwo Odofin party stalwart told Push News 24 International that his relationship with Asiwaju is not political but that of a father and son built over the years through a strange mixture of mentoring, delegating and loyalty.

Below is the release after the tet-a-tet with the National Leader of the All Progressive Congress.

All Progressive Congress (APC) chieftain in Amuwo Odofin LGA area of Lagos State Captain Adebayo Dosunmu paid a courtesy visit to the National Leader of the party and Presidential hopeful Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Friday 22nd April 2022 at his Asokoro residence in Abuja.

The visit was not unconnected with the pledge to support the aspiration of his principal until he is sworn in as president and commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria after the 2023 general elections.

Recall that on Thursday 21st April, while the commencement date for the sale of forms by the APC was announced, Captain Adebayo Dosunmu made a pledge to donate the sum of A million naira in support of the purchase of the nomination form for Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

During the visitation, Captain Adebayo Dosunmu explained to Asiwaju Tinubu that he travelled down from Lagos to fulfil his pledge of one (1) million naira support not just as a core student of the political icon, but as a true believer in the developmental agenda of the former governor would bring to the table once elected.

The Marine captain, MD/CEO DOSUNMU HOLDINGS NIG LTD, who was obviously elated that a man of Asiwaju’s caliber graciously accepted the kind donation, spoke to newsmen after leaving the Asokoro residence and had this to say. “I am a firm believer in the ideology of Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and have taken his presidential bid as my project for the year and beyond 2023. His antecedents as former Lagos State governor cleared the path for what we witness there today. Once given that opportunity, I strongly believe he will perform excellently well as President of Nigeria. I urge all Nigerians especially the youths to throw their weight behind Asiwaju Tinubu in order to prepare for the life changing opportunity he has to offer the country”.

Bola Tinubu in his remark urged Captain Dosunmu to preach to or encourage more people to revalidate and register for their permanent voters card (PVC) in order to gather enough votes for the APC ones he emerges at the primaries.

Bola Tinubu thanked Captain Dosunmu for his kind gesture and wished him well in his future endeavours.
