The City Boys Movement says what Nigeria needs now is Asiwaju Tinubu’s’ doggedness in moving it from its current state of economic problem to greatness.

The BoT Chairman of the National Coalition Group (NCG), Hon. Francis Shoga made the statement when he led City Boys and NCG’s’ executives on a courtesy visit to the palace of Mai Girma, the Sapeyi of Garki, Alhaji Usman Ngakupi, Sapeyi Palace Garki Abuja, and the Agaba of Jiwa, His Royal Highness Alhaji Idris Musa.


The visit was part of the group’s effort to strengthen and foster their relationship with all relevant stakeholders towards the victory of Asiwaju Tinubu ahead of the 2023 presidential election in the Federal capital territory.

The BoT Chairman, Mr. Shoga, while speaking at the Emirs Palace, noted that the visit would cut across other federation states in continuation of further consultation with all necessary stakeholders.

The group highlighted some past achievements of Asiwaju Tinubu, including free education, infrastructural development, and free medical outreach.

They stressed the need to support the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate’s ambition of becoming the President to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023, as he is the only aspirant who can change the fortune of Nigeria among other contestants.

He urged the Emirs and the Emirate to consider the country’s present situation and support them as royal fathers, whose support is paramount in ensuring that Tinubu becomes the next President of Nigeria at the 2023 general elections.

“Your Highness, we are here on a courtesy visit to intimate you of our presence in Abuja. We are also here to bring to you and the Emirate a message of hope for the country from our Principal, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. We seek your support because Asiwaju Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, is an untribalised Nigerian citizen.

“Tinubu is a dogged goal getter; his doggedness led to a new Lagos; giving him a chance as Nigeria’s president is equivalent to giving Nigeria a facelift and rays of hope.”

The NCG’s’ National Chairman, Dr. Bako Abdullahi, unveiled the group’s agenda to the royal father, explaining that having considered all candidates from political parties’’ primaries, Asiwaju Tinubu remains the man with the requisite leadership skills and experience.

Reeling out some of Tinubu’s’ achievements as Lagos State governor and even outside of the political office, Dr. Abdullahi noted that Tinubu set the unprecedented blueprint that successive governors have continued to enjoy.

Abdullahi also sought the support of the Emirs towards the actualisation of his presidential ambition adding that he was the only man who could lift Nigeria from the current state to a lofty height.

“Your royal highness, we need your support to use your royal voice among our people in your Emirate to support the ambition of Tinubu. He has the best credential among other presidential aspirants.

““His landmark achievements as governor of Lagos State are there for verification. He is the pathfinder of the infrastructural revolution you see in Lagos today. He sets the pace, and others follow.

“With Tinubu as the President in 2023, Nigerians are assured of Economic and Infrastructural development. This country needs someone who can revolutionise the country, and that is what Tinubu is bringing to the table.”

Responding, the Mai Girma, the Sapeyi of Garki, Alhaji Usman Ngakupi, noted that Tinubu is a man known at home and abroad with a strong track record and footprint which he has already been registered in Lagos State and other parts of the nation.

““Tinubu is a man of the people; all I have to say is that Nigerians should continue to pray for his good health, for the wisdom he has been having to ensure his agenda and that of Shettima are being fulfilled.

Similarly, the Emir of Jiwa, HRH Alhaji Idris Musa, explained that Nigerians need to shun the spirit of tribalism and religious sentiment and urged the Tinubu group to do so by being truthful while shunning all vices.
