The Consolidated All Progressives Congress Grassroot Movement says it has commenced massive grassroots mobilization for President Bola Tinubu ahead of the 2027 general elections.
The group noted that there was an urgent need to consolidate power and secure a successful future for the APC.
National chairman of the group, Engr. Salisu Magaji, stated this at the inauguration of its national, zonal, and state executive members in Abuja on Monday.
Navajo also commended President Tinubu’s political feats since he assumed office.
The group, which consists of loyalists and supporters of Tinubu, also recognised his “immense contributions” to the APC’s success over the years.
Magaji stated that Tinubu had demonstrated exemplary leadership skills, which have earned him the admiration and respect of many across the country.
“The expectation is very clear. We are mobilizers to the grassroots and we have mobilised for the party (APC) and we have started mobilising against the 2027 election,” Magaji said.
“We are not going to relent in our mandate and we will bring the first president that will emerge in this country. We have demonstrated that within the six months of his stay, you can see that the atmosphere is very conducive.
“Before, I couldn’t travel from here to my state but now I travel by road for about 12 kilometers. Security is becoming a history in the country and you can now see that a lot of investments are coming up. He is the first president to ever travel to Saudi Arabia where they promised to invest in our oil sector and also our banking industry while the dollar will be regulated and we will have imports and exports as expected.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the first President that doesn’t have a boss, he doesn’t have a political mentor and so we are copying his own style because we have grown up from a child of kindergarten to secondary school, to university and we are now emeritus, retired professors in terms of support group so we are more than support groups now, we are calling voters.
“We decide who’s going to be the 2027 president. Whatever you do, we will wait for you at the bus stop, if you make us happy, we are going to campaign door to door, office to office to ensure that 2027 will be better than what we are having now.
“We are giving 100 percent hope because Asiwaju has promised that he will remove subsidy and he has kept to his words and you can see what is happening, there are a lot of investors and attraction outside of the country and today the oil issue is going to become history, the dollar issue is going to become issue.
“We are talking about health; if you look at his budget, what takes a major part of the budget is security, human development, and education and that is to show that this guy has a sense of belonging and this is our major problem in the country. He didn’t talk about infrastructure. He talks about human development, security, and education.”
On his part, the national secretary, Hon. Butches Emmanuel Nwosu, appreciated everyone present, emphasizing the movement’s distinction as more than a support group within the APC.
He stressed the importance of understanding the group’s objectives, underscoring its role as the prime platform for grassroots mobilization within the party.
Nwosu highlighted the movement’s commitment to upcoming local government, ward, and polling unit elections.
