The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, arrived at the Eagle Square with a large crowd of his followers, following him, at the venue of the ruling party’s national convention.
The former governor of Lagos State was ushered into the convention venue by hundreds of supporters. Tinubu was surrounded by security agents as he marched into Eagle Square in Abuja.
According to a video posted on Twitter by the Special Assistant to Governor Sanwo-Olu on New Media, Jubril Gawat, thousands of supporters gave the presidential aspirant a standing ovation as he entered the convention venue.
The convention venue is also littered with Tinubu’s 2023 presidential election campaign posters and banners.
The former governor had earlier declared his intention to run for president of Nigeria in 2023. Tinubu has consulted many stakeholders across the country in line with his presidential bid.
