Adamawa State cordinator of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Foundation (ABATF), Sulaiman Yerima has profoundly thanked the national cordinator of the organization, Bolaji Eniola for appointing Malam Nuhu Ribadu as the national patron of the organization.
Yerima who made the position at a press conference in Yola, Sunday said the gesture will not have come at a better time considering the role Ribadu will play in consolidating the Tinubu/Shettima ticket in the state come 2023.
The state coordinator noted that the gesture has given the state chapter the impetus to mobilize it’s 15,000 membership strength to ensure that it work round the clock to ensure the victory of the APC national leader in the forthcoming presidential election in the state.
“We are deeply touched by this show of love and brotherhood extended to one of Nigeria’s finest son who is the son of Adamawa State, Malam Nuhu Ribadu.
“Indeed this is a climax to the soaring convivial relationship spanning decades between our next president and our amiable compatriot Malam Nuhu Ribadu.
“We have no words to thank the leadership of ABATF other than to say we will payback the gesture by mobilizing our teeming members to ensure the success of the Tinubu presidential ticket,” he said.
Yerima expressed optimism of APC’s victory in the coming presidential election despite having a contender for the office from the state adding that with the support of people like Ribadu, the coast will be clear and victory of APC is a settled matter in the state.
