Tinubu hailed the flag bearers for their contributions, trust, and fidelity to the vision and mission, which had shaped the growth and development of the platform.
He said, “We formed this party to rescue the people and their collective prosperity from the avarice and greed of an elite that will devour the nation’s God-given endowment if we allow such people back into power. As those flying our party’s flag, we carry a heavy burden on our shoulders.
“We have the mandate to deliver the party to victory so that we may protect Nigeria from those who would devour all of its fruits.
