A movement of youths across the Southwest region, on Saturday, took a powerful stand ahead of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential primaries slated for next month.
The young people, in their thousands, converged in Lagos State to endorse the presidential aspiration of the APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The Mobolaji Johnson Sports Arena in Onikan was filled to the brim, as a mammoth crowd of youths under the aegis of Progressive Youth of Southwest declared and pledged their support for Tinubu, whom they described as “contender with clear vision and high capacity”.
The rally was joined by various other youth groups, including young House of Assembly members across the Southwest states, National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) chairmen in the Southwest, Joint Campus Committees (JCCs) of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), National Union of Lagos State Students (NULAS) and youth arms of various ethnic nationalities in the Southwest and indigenous communities.
Also, hip-hop artistes and Fuji musicians were at the rally to show solidarity for Tinubu, entertaining the crowd with various endorsement songs. Comic youth preacher, Oluwatoyin Bayegun, popularly known as Woli Arole, and his colleague actor, Asiri (Damilare Osundare), compered the event.
