Group predicts victory for Tinubu in South South
South South Agenda for Tinubu/Shettima (SSAT) has declared that the Presidential Candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will win the presidential election in the South South region.
In a statement, delivered electronically and signed by the leader of the group, Bitrus Nta Oliver, the group said no geopolitical zone would want to be in the opposition in 2023, hence, the zone has resolved that the votes of the people of the South-South zone will be for Tinubu.
The statement reads: “As a matter of fact, we thank God our people have realised this and have resolved to vote for Tinubu/Shettima come 2023”.
He said the group was poised to market Tinubu and Shettima to the South-South and called on members to spread the message that Tinubu is experienced and competent to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari and fulfill the expectations of Nigerians.
The group, which described itself as an independent support group in the region, also accused the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, of working against the party and its presidential candidate.
Oliver maintained that the CBN governor was sabotaging the APC and the presidential candidate of the party and called for the removal of the governor from office to stabilise the economy and put an immediate end to the alleged sabotage.
He added: “Over the years, prices of goods and services go up in December and from statistics just before general elections. How then did Mr. Emefiele come to the conclusion that the naira redesign policy in December, so close to the general elections, is the best for the country, if not to prompt unprecedented inflation and hardship in the country, and make President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC look really bad in the eyes of the people.”
