The Nigeria Professionals Forum (NPF) has declared its support for the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu and his running mate, Sen Kashim Shettima, saying Nigeria needs tested hands to pilot its affairs at this critical time.

According to the professionals, it is no more time to sit on the fence and allow those who have no business with governance to take over the affairs of the country, noting that their desire to support Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Shettima follows extensive consultation with various stakeholders across the country on their political alignment as 2023 approaches.

Speaking with journalists after a courtesy visit to the National Director General of APC Professionals Council in Lagos yesterday the leader of the delegation and the National President of NPF, Engr Richard Okon said several milestones are associated with the former Lagos State governor both as a political leader, a mentor, an administrator and a nationalist which makes him a perfect fit to lead the country in 2023.

“If you look across the country today, there are only a few people who can match Asiwaju’s pedigree in terms of administrative prowess and leadership dexterity.

“This is a man who laid the foundation for the new modern Lagos we are proud to associate with today, the Lagos that has created wealth for Nigeria and its neighbours.

“This is a man who boasts of an enviable record in terms of raising a fine crop of leaders who today are contributing their quota in building a new Nigeria.

“This is a man while he was a governor assembled members of his cabinet from all ethnic groups and religious alignments in Nigeria without discrimination. That is the kind of a man that should lead Nigeria in 2023 and 17 million professionals across Nigeria are in support of him” he said.

Receiving the delegation, the National Director General of APC Professionals Council, Hon Seyi Bamigbade expressed gratitude to the over 17 million professionals from across all sectors of the country made up of engineers, bankers, sailors, journalists, artisans, ICT specialists, medical workers, educationists and more for identifying with the party and its presidential candidate, assuring that they will not regret their support.

He expressed the readiness of the council under his visionary leadership to continue to raise the bar of effective leadership by mobilising more support for the candidates that will work for all Nigerians.
