Northern Christian Youth Professionals (NYCP) has called on their regional delegates in the All Progressives Congress (APC) to vote for their party’s national leader, Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the ticket, stating that if he emerged President, he can transformed Bandits and other terrorists gangs to productive Nigerians.
At a Press Conference held at Evelyn Event & Recreational Center, Gwarimpa, Abuja, the youths said Tinubu took the Agberos off the streets of Lagos, transformed them and brought them back to transform the very streets they were destroying.
Speaking for the group, the Press Coordinator, Isaac Linus Abrak said Bola Tinubu has demonstrated his ability to transform Agberos into highly productive Nigerian citizens.
“We believe that he can do it again, particularly in the North. He can transform the bandits, kidnappers, terrorists and armed robbers into productive Nigerians too; an effort that will not only guarantee us peace but also eliminate our current economic concerns,” the Christian Youths said.
“In this regard, the Northern Christian Youth Professionals is calling on the APC delegates particularly those of the northern extraction to ensure that BAT gets the ticket as the Presidential Candidate, which will eventually get us into villa in 2023 by the Grace of Almighty God.
“As Christians, we put our faith in God in everything we do and we never forget to present our case to our Heavenly Father in prayer,” the group said adding that Tinubu is within the productive age and sound health to pilot the affairs of the country.
“In the coming weeks, we will be organizing different online and local prayer Programmes, calling on Northern Christian Youths across Nigeria and in the diaspora to pray regularly for Bola Ahmed Tinubu to get an opportunity to serve and improve the lives of Nigerians in the capacity of the President.
“We are inviting everyone to join us in prayer. We will be communicating the schedules for the online and local prayer sessions in the coming weeks,” Abraj said.
The youth also affirmed theirs support for Abdulmumin’s choice to support the ambitions of Bola Tinubu to become the president of Nigeria adding that it further justifies preference of nationalism over tribalism.
“The Northern Christians Youth Professional have no doubt that Hon Abdulmumin has the required experience to deliver on this mandate by harmonizing the potentials of the thousands of the support groups to get the Jagaban to Aso Rock in 2023.
“Now to the man of the moment – Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu the man who personifies the epitome of the politics of ‘’One Nigeria’’. For instance, Bola Tinubu built a political party – Action Congress (AC) in Lagos state 2006, it later metaphorized into Action Congress of Nigeria (APC) and successfully broadened it into a Regional Party in the South West. By 2015, he fused Action Congress Nigeria with other parties in the North and the South East of Nigeria to form APC.
“This did not only grow to become a strong national party, but it elected the first progressive president – President Mohammadu Buhari – a feat that we Northern Christian Youth Professionals (NYCP) proudly identify with.
“Nigeria’s dwindling oil prices, falling exchange rates, budgetary deficits and the ever-growing prices of basic commodities like tomato, pepper and pure water would certainly need the ability of a person like Bola Tinubu who successfully created a financial machinery that grew the Internally Generated Revenue of Lagos State from 14.6 billion Naira in 1999 to 128.2 billion Naira in 2021.
“In the 1990s, the streets of Lagos were taken over by the Agberos (thugs), extorting money from the people, mounting roadblocks in places like Idumota – the business hub of Lagos and by extension Nigeria.
“Today, the Agberos did not only transform their lives, their activities in organizations like the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA) and the Ministry of Economic Planning and Budget, to mention a few, also contributed immensely to this Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of Lagos State that is being celebrated nationwide today,” the youth said adding that if given the opportunity, Tinubu will replicate what he did in Lagos for Nigeria.
