…As Tonye Cole, State Exco Affirm Support For Tinubu
The National Youth Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Dayo Israel, has inaugurated the Rivers State chapter of the Jagaban Movement, a national grassroots youth mobilisation unit structured into regions, states, Local Government Areas (LGAs) wards, and Polling Units, with the objective of mobilising young voters for Bola Tinubu, PREACH presidential candidate and other candidates of the party in the forthcoming general elections.
The event took place in Port Harcourt on Wednesday against the background of Wike’s reported decision to throw his weight behind the APC presidential candidate, a momentous decision predicted to help Tinubu’s ambition in Rivers State and the South-South region where the governor is said to command great influence.
Israel, who since the inauguration of the APC National Youth Wing Campaign Council last month in Kaduna State, has continued his tour of the country to flag-off local youth mobilisation efforts organised under the Jagaban Movement, even as he urged members of the Rivers State chapter of the party to prove their mettle and ensure that the party wins the state in the elections.
While dismissing reports and unverified rumors about the health of the party’s presidential candidate, he noted that the former Lagos State Governor boasts of a work schedule that is better than any other candidate in the election, with daily trips to different parts of the country to provide insight into his manifesto alongside other meetings with relevant stakeholders.
He charged them to study the candidate’s manifesto and use the knowledge to win the hearts of young people in the nooks and crannies of the state, and encouraged the smart and effective utilization of tools made available to them, including Canvasser’s Record Sheet, a data-gathering tool designed to help the party prosecute the election with up-to-date data on local voting trends and demographics.
The event was attended by Tonye Cole, the governorship candidate of the party in Rivrs State who seized the opportunity to debunk rumored deal struck with the opposition to aid his emergence at the polls.
He reiterated his total and enduring loyalty to Tinubu and the APC, while providing assurances of meaningful support to the state chapter of the Jagaban Movement to attain success in its important youth mobilisation quest.
Other party leaders, including members of the state’s executives, were also present at the event, with each taking turns to pledge allegiance to the cause of the party to achieve victory in the February 25th and March 11th polls.
