Bola Ahmed Tinubu Bola Ahmed Tinubu

A pro-Tinubu support group, Patriots of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has said they will not castigate the outgoing administration but build on its achievements and strategies.

The national leader of POBAT, Dr Abiola Oshodi, said this in Abuja during the inauguration of the group.

He said, “POBAT is not about castigating the outgoing administration but to build on it and through that build a strong and unshakable support base for Tinubu ahead of the next presidential election in 2023.

“The need for the rescue of the nation is much more important than any other consideration now and we at POBAT are now convinced more than ever before that while it is the turn of the South, it is also our collective effort to push for the candidacy of Tinubu who possesses all the qualities of the Nigerian President with the dynamism that this time requires.

“Our movement, POBAT, is open to all Nigerians across tribe, race, religion, profession and gender as well as Nigerians in The Diaspora,” he said.

The inauguration had in attendance members from the 36 states of the federation and FCT.

In his welcome address, national president, POBAT, Dr Babatunde Bello, said Nigeria deserved a dynamic and compassionate leader like Tinubu, stressing that he would unite and not divide the nation.

“I have no doubt in my mind that POBAT is one of the many groups rooting for the Tinubu presidency, but after this inauguration today, we shall be the group leading the charge for the Tinubu Presidency with an unwavering zeal as we shall move from one state to another round the country to canvass for the Tinubu Presidency.”
