2023 presidential election: APC amalgamated support group visits ICC DG Agara, hails Tinubu on victory


The Amalgamated APC Support Groups (AASG) has paid a thank you visit to the Director-General of the Independent Campaign Council (ICC), Silas Ali Agara on the successes recorded in the February 25, 2023 Presidential and National Assembly elections.

The election produced Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kashim Shettima as President-elect and Vice President-elect, respectively.

Led by the Director – General of AASG, Engr (Dr) Kailani Muhammad, the support groups commended the National Officers, Zonal, State Coordinators and entire members for their zeal, commitment and dedication to the ideals of AASG before, during and after the elections.

Engr Kailani described the allegations by the opposition parties that the elections were flawed as medicine after death, positing that the President-elect and his team along with the support groups, toured all parts of the country to garner the votes that were cast in the presidential election.

He said, “Those crying wolf where there is none, have approached the courts and even taken to the streets of Abuja, the Federal Capital City in protest against the election results. They have challenged the Independent National Electoral Commission to give them the result sheets, which the electoral umpire is ready and willing to do. At the end of it all, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will still retain his presidency because he won fair and square and the masses are with him.”

Engr Kailani however reminded the Director – General of the Independent Campaign Council, to carry members of AASG along, when it comes to the benefits and dividends of democracy in the forthcoming dispensation, given their sacrifices.

“We also have our blue print, which we shall give to the President – elect, on areas that we know need urgent attention for empowerment of the down- trodden and for the socio- economic development of our country,” he said, noting that “AASG is one indivisible big family, made up of about 15, 000 support groups nationwide.”
