2023: Bola Ilori Group Inaugurates Canvassers for Tinubu.
Special Adviser to the Minister of Interior and Chairman, Federal Government Task Force on Expatriate Quota Administration in Nigeria, Hon. Bola Ilori, on Saturday, inaugurated grassroots canvassers for the APC Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in Ondo State.
The group of promoters will educate electorates on INEC’s new directives for the coming elections while soliciting support and votes for the APC and all its candidates in the elections.
Bola Ilori, the former Osun State Commissioner, reacting to the event through a statement made available to the press said changes in the guidelines of elections conduct brought by the new electoral law requires that electorates, especially the aged should be educated to be able to perform their civic rights without hassles.
“There are teeming supporters of the APC and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who are ready to vote in the coming presidential election. So, the idea is to ensure that all our potential votes are secured while canvassing for more through this exercise” Ilori said.
The former Chairman of Alimoso Local Government Area of Lagos State and former Special Adviser to Ondo State Governor, presumed that many old people may find some of the new innovations INEC will be deploying in this coming election strange. He said the canvassers would educate them and preserve every vote meant for the APC and Bola Tinubu.
“We are practical politicians. We leverage all lawful means to reach out to our supporters. We don’t just sit on the social media and dream of votes. We follow our own street and media acceptability with tangible actions. We are backing our strong desire to see Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu become the next President of Nigeria by encouraging our supporters to go to the polling units and cast their votes.” He said.
The canvassers who are divided into different groups were equipped with materials ranging from customised jacket, shirts and caps, branded vechicles, megaphones, and other campaign souvenirs. They are to engage voters on community-to-community and door-to-door campaigns.
