Deputy Speaker Idris Wase has assured the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima of his total support in the 2023 elections.
Speaking when he received the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu (ABAT) Support Group on a courtesy call in his office, the Deputy Speaker said: “Of all the candidates in other political parties, none has the qualities and capacity of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu”.
The Deputy Speaker added he is ready to support any initiative that would add value and subsequently lead to the success of the Tinubu/Shettima ticket.
“I want to assure you that we in the House of Representatives, particularly members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), we shall collaborate with every organisation to ensure victory for the Tinubu/Shetima ticket,” he said.
He charged the group to go out in full force and campaign for Tinubu.
“We have good products to sell. This is somebody that had turned around the economy of Lagos within a short time and has built people across the country, irrespective of region or religion.
“I charge you all to go out in full force with your head high seeking for those votes as you have a good product to sell to Nigerians. I urged you not to relent in ensuring the victory for our candidates,” Wase said.
The Deputy Speaker expressed optimism the APC will be victorious with the overwhelming majority in both chambers of the National Assembly.
He assured the group of his total support to actualize the Tinubu/ Shettima ticket as well as victory for the party in 2023.
National Coordinator of the organisation, Hon. Oyinkansola Okiwuyi, said they were in the National Assembly to seek the support and cooperation of the Deputy Speaker and to also inform him about the strategy they are using to galvanise and solicit for votes.
