2023: Tinubu best product to market – RMFC ex-chairman, Mbam

The immediate past Chairman of the Revenue Mobilization and Fiscal Commission (RMFC), Engr. Elias Mbam has declared that the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu stands out from other candidates for the 2023 election.

Mbam, who is the South-East Director, Support Group Coordination Directorate for the Ahmed Bola Tinubu/Kashim Shettima 2023 presidential project, said it is so easy to market Tinubu to the electorate.

Speaking, weekend, in Enugu at a town hall meeting with coordinators of support groups in the South-east geo-political zone of the country, he insisted that the APC candidate would replicate the achievements he made in Lagos as governor between 1999-2007.

He urged the people of the South-East to vote massively for Tinubu as he was the only one with the capacity to set the country on the right path.

He explained that the town hall meeting was organised so as to acquaint the support groups in the Southeast with their roles in the electoral process, share experiences and formulate the best approach to actualize their objectives.

“The support groups drive the process. In other words, the failure or success in an election is determined mainly by the success or failure of the support groups.

“We are lucky that we have a good product in the person of Tinubu and Shettima and would therefore be easy to market. We all have a duty to drive this process successfully,” he stated.

In his speech, a chieftain of APC and former Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Hon. Acho Ihim, had counselled the support groups not to be confrontational with people who abuse or criticise Bola Tinubu on social media, rather, they should always apply convincing mechanisms.

Ihim pointed out that in America and other advanced climes, age was not considered in choosing a presidential candidate, stressing that what mattered most was whether the individual seeking the office had the capacity to deliver if given the mandate.

He said, “for Tinubu to win in the South-East will depend on how the support group members market his candidacy and the APC in the zone.

“When people are insulting your principal Tinubu in the social media, don’t go into a social media war with them, rather, calm down and engage them in a way they will be convinced and become Tinubu supporters.

“Remind them about the total transformation Lagos State went through under Tinubu’s watch, in 1999- 2007.

“Tinubu is a patriotic and detribalized Nigerian, who has touched many lives, irrespective of tribe or religion.”
