2023: ATPCO Urges Nigerians To Consider Competence In Electing Next President


The Director General of Asiwaju Tinubu Presidential Campaign Organisation (ATPCO), Barrister Adebayo Shittu, has urged Nigerians to seek competence and merit in choosing who should lead them rather than allow primordial sentiment to prevail their sense of judgement.

Shittu said Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is married to a pastor in one of the biggest churches in the world, and even his children practice Christianity.

“When we get to Airport, we don’t ask for the religion of the pilot but who has the expertise to take us to a safe destination. Nigeria is like a plane that requires an experienced and capable leader at this point in time”, he explained.

Shittu said this while briefing newsmen in Ibadan, Oyo state, declaring that the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will win the 2023 presidential election.

He added that the task ahead may be daunting but the business of marketing Tinubu would be easy because he is a man of immense goodwill.

The former minister of communication who is making his first interaction with journalists since his appointment as director general of ATPCO said the main focus of the group is to galvanise support and midwife the electoral process that will culminate into Tinubu winning the 2023 presidential election.

He said the organisation is ready to take Tinubu’s presidential campaign to every nook and cranny of the country.

He said, “Please, let no one make any mistake about it; we are ready to take the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s presidential campaign to every nook and cranny of this nation. We shall get to all the 36 states and the FCT: we shall be in all the 774 local government areas of the country; and we shall visit each of the 8,813 wards in the country. We shall get in touch with all eligible voters and reach every Nigerian.

“Though the task ahead may be daunting, the business of marketing Asiwaju Tinubu shall be easy because he is a man of immense goodwill. He is very much loved by Nigerians across regions and religions. He is at home with people of diverse culture and orientation and that makes him the obvious choice to make our nation great.

He is interested in the welfare of the downtrodden and wants to help them get better. He is a champion of social justice. He is the kind of President Nigeria needs to take it to the envisioned height.

“We shall be focused on our vision of marketing our principal and we have no doubt that the Nigerian electorate will make the right choice of voting for Asiwaju Tinubu in the presidential election so that Nigeria’s joumey to greatness can begin in earnest. This is our ultimate goal. It is achievable. Definitely, our candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will be the next president of Nigeria by the grace of the Almighty,” he said.
