A group of Nigerian lawyers under the Lawyers Network for Bola Ahmed Tinubu 2023 has expressed its readiness to canvass votes for the APC candidate in next year’s presidential election, Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT).
The group stated this in Lagos at a press conference on Tuesday.
Coordinator and convener of the group, Dotun Ajulo, the group’s position was borne out of the discovery that lawyers wield so much influence on the society and that they were determined to see a better Nigeria.
The group noted that harnessing the enormous influence and transferring it into a national agenda to promote, integrate and achieve national goals and development via the engagement, mobilisation and conscientization of all Nigerians to vote en masse for a Nationalist, Patriotic, selfless and astute socio-political engineer in the person Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in 2023 is their agenda.

In the words of Ajulo, “In arriving at the choice of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, we have considered and evaluated him with other major contenders for presidency and we realized that his mien, disposition and patriotism placed him above others. Based on his antecedents, which his opponents admits.
“BAT has seen it all, worked through the processes of nation building in Nigeria and know where it hurts deeply. As a city boy, he has seen both sides of leadership and governance.
“We must remind Nigerians that BAT in governance as Governor in Lagos state, the Federal allocation of Lagos State was withheld for about four years but infrastructural development never ceased, the State IGR improved and till date, the state of Lagos state economy is on a steady rise based on his templates.
“More importantly, Bola Ahmed Tinubu ran an inclusive government devoid of tribe, religion and belief, his ability to shop for good hands for effective governance is the high point of his leadership. We have no doubt that he will recruit best hands to manage the current Nigerian Challenge which he has stated severally at various for as surmountable.”
The convener stressed that the lawyers’ affiliation is not linked to any political party, religion or belief other than the yearning for a better Nigeria.
