 Briefing Newsmen shortly on his arrival to the state capital, Yenagoa, from his area, the Executive Chairman of the body, Comrade Inegbagha Majesty had said that the members of OCAF had resolved to align with the APC and make Tinubu the next president of the country based on his exceptional track record as well as the fact that the duo are the best among the presidential candidates that can govern and make the country a hub of peace, stability and prosperity. Having unreserved confidence in Tinubu, they fervently believe that if elected in the 2023 elections, Tinubu’s administration would bring about progressive governance that would address the socio- economic and political challenges bedeviling the country to make life meaningful for the people. The organization boss pointed out that the APC 2023 presidential standard bearer and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, were the best for the country saying that their administration will address the issue of marginalization and segregation, believing that his administration will fight corruption which is very endemic and encourage local production and increase the production demands in the country and use Nigerian potentials to achieve progress, industrialization and electricity, thus reduce stealing in governance. The body stressed that the duo has incomparable track records as exemplified when Tinubu was Governor of Lagos state while Shettima as Borno state governor, noting that both will promote progressive government as Shettima possesses strong leadership abilities as well. OCAF applauded the manifesto of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu as he provided the electorate with a clear manifesto and action plans on how to take up governance upon his emergence at the 2023 polls. Noting that elections provide a vital prospect to advance democratisation and boost political liberalisation, it pointed out that the APC presidential candidate as a democrat will do everything to address the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians devoid of ethnic sentiment and tribalism. Inegbagha who described Senator Tinubu as an experienced management accountant, financial strategist, and an accomplished political administrator, who has extensive connections stretching across decades of corporate employment, social activism and politics, is accustomed to making big growth dreams come true. He added that Senator Tinubu possesses all the right human qualities and capacity to effectively unite Nigerians and tackle the problems of insecurity, endemic poverty, mass unemployment, inflation and the prevailing high cost of living and restore the deteriorating state of the nation’s economy, the value of Naira and free Nigerians from the present challenges when elected. OCAF boss asserted emphatically that Senator Tinubu has track record of achievement, which no other candidate has, stressing that his competence for the job stands out in his famous and outstanding performance as governor of Lagos State. Tinubu as governor, he said has transformed political administration and employed different measures to improve service delivery and system efficiency in the state public sector. On the joint ticket of the APC Presidential Candidate, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima, he described it as the best because the country’s political situation needs capable, committed and detribalize persons of integrity who will foster national cohesion, adding that their victory would eliminate religious and ethnic division among Nigerians and boost peace and stability the nation demand. The body therefore used the forum to enjoin the electorates to vote the APC presidential candidate and his running mate because the duo are right leaders needed to serve the people from May 29, 2023. On their mobilization of support for the Senator Representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District, Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo the organisation described him as an exceptional achiever over his uncommon performance at the National Assembly. Describing Senator Degi-Eremienyo as a trailblazer and God sent foresighted leader, a man of openhandedness and impeccable character endowed with rare wisdom; OCAF boss extolled him for his effective representation and discharge of his statutory duties creditably, especially the people-oriented bills he had sponsored and the motions he had moved adding to other activities that he had embarked upon which had direct positive impacts on the yearnings and the aspirations of Nigerians, particularly his constituents. OCAF lauded him for his even distribution of the dividends of democracy to the nooks and crannies of his senatorial district to improve the qualities of lives of the people. They noted that Senator Degi-Eremienyo was among few contemporary Nigerians that have demonstrated progressive credentials through hard work, sagacity, selfless service and commitment towards the improvement of the socio-economic and political well-being of the people. According to the body within this period in office, the Senator has fulfilled his electioneering promises and still working assiduously noting the developmental challenges in his state and Niger Delta region. “Certainly, Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo is a man of unparalleled achievements. He is a bridge builder and helper of the down trodden,” he stated. The organization also endorsed Barrister Edi-Orubo, APC Candidate for Ogbia Federal Constituency saying that he is their choice for 2023 general election.
