Opposition Presidential Candidates Beg Tinubu For Appointment | SEE NAMES

Some opposition Presidential candidates in the 2023 election, under the aegis of Forum of Concerned Presidential Candidates, have pleaded with President Bola Tinubu to consider them for appointments in his government.

The candidates made this plea when they visited the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, at the party’s secretariat in Abuja on Thursday.

Speaking during the courtesy visit, the presidential candidate of the National Rescue Movement (NRM), Felix Osakwe requested that they be included in the governorship campaign councils for the November 11, 2023 elections in Imo, Bayelsa and Kogi States.

Osakwe noted that they refused to join other candidates in filing petitions against Tinubu at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal because they are not known for playing politics with bitterness.

He, on behalf of others, expressed willingness to offer their services to the president in the spirit of inclusive politics.



In his words;

“I feel Mr chairman you will be the right person to lead us to meet with Mr. President so that we can air our own views in his presence and also to let him know that it is not all the presidential candidates that were against him. We chose not to go to court because this is Nigeria. We are here to thank you and God.

“The former presidential candidates are willing to offer our services to this country. We have a demand and it is for the party. That a slot in the campaign council for the Governorship elections should be made available to us. Those of us who have piloted this held a meeting. And we are asked to demand from you a presence in the campaign Council. We believe that our job is much more wanted now as we prepare to go into the polls in the three states in November.

“I am to submit two names to the chairman. And we believe by your power and by the special grace of God, it shall be done with your help. We will do our best to make sure that the three states that are going for the polls succeed. And with what we have been doing, we are going to mobilise our parties in those states for your party.”

Responding, Ganduje assured the team that he will table their demand before President Tinubu.
Other opposiiton presidential candidates preet during the visit include; Charles Nnadi (Action Peoples Party); Prof Peter Umeadi (All Progressives Grand Alliance); Dr Odey Udo (Action Democratic Party Vice Presidential Candidate), and Adewale Adeogun, the leader of the delegation.
