Some APC Members Endorse Tinubu As Consensus Candidate

Some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Plateau State have endorsed former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, as the party’s consensus presidential candidate.
The group expressed their support for Tinubu at a rally in Jos, Tuesday.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Hon. Solomon Ndam described Tinubu as a good omen for the country owing to his numerous contributions to the sustenance of our nascent democracy over the decades.
Addressing the party faithful, Ndam noted that the aspirations of the party’s national leader “presents us with a great opportunity to turn the fortunes of the country around for good, owing to his leadership style that speaks volumes of an unalloyed commitment to sustainable growth and development”.
He, therefore, said it will be an error of judgment if the APC in Plateau State does not rally support for his presidential aspiration.
