In preparation for the elections that will take place in 2023, the Nigeria Union of Fishermen and Sea Foods Dealers (NUFSFD) has given its support to Bola Tinubu’s bid to become the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Comrade Sani Usman Rilwan Arzuka, the National Chairman of the Union, stated that the union’s endorsement of the former governor of Lagos state for the presidential race was based on the conviction that he has a nationalistic stance to lead the country. This statement was made in response to a question regarding why the union endorsed the candidate.
Comrade Arzuka, who said in a statement that he was a presidential aspirant under the platform of YPP, but opted to decamp to APC because of Tinubu’s potential to guide Nigeria to the promised land in 2023, stated that he made his decision to join APC because of Tinubu’s capacity.
“We would want to use this opportunity to extend our congratulations to our friend and Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Jagaban Borgu, for his outstanding performance in Kaduna during the interactive session with the Arewa Joint Committee.
“The North and indeed Nigeria and Nigerians now know that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is not only the best among the presidential candidates but also one that has the intellectual and physical ability to lead Nigeria as president. This is something that has been brought to the attention of the Nigerian people by the North.
“I was a presidential aspirant on the platform of the YPP with extensive and massive followers, but I decamped immediately with my teeming followers from the 36 states of the Federation after hearing the victory of Asiwaju Ahmed TIinubu at the primary election of the APC, knowing fully well that he is the only man who the cap fits, who has all it takes to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023. “I was a presidential aspirant on the platform
“Before I resigned from the YPP, I served as the Zonal Chairman for the Northwest region, which gave me access to a large network of connections throughout the geo-political zone.
“I am now coming on board with my followers to support Tinubu/ Shettima for the 2023 election, and we have since commenced mobilization work for Tinubu’s success and have not relented in spreading his political ideals across board. ” “I am now coming on board with my followers to support Tinubu/ Shettima for the 2023 election.”
“My original viewpoint and the reason why I switched from the Young Progressives Party to the All Progressives Congress for Tinubu gave me the guts to advocate and organize more followers for our future president,” he said. I’ve already got certain infrastructure in place, and if Allah in His infinite wisdom wills it, we’ll sail to victory with ease.
“My followers go where I goes, and I’m taking them to nowhere except the door of our future president… I’m not going to let them down!”
For all of eternity, Jagaban.
“We hope that by the time our next President sees members of our association and has the knowledge of our spread nationally, he would be delighted with our association. This would be galvanized for the final success of his political desire.” It was said in the statement.
