“Though I’m not a politician but I’m here because of Tinubu I will never stop campaigning for him untill he becomes the President. He is the best man for the job, not because he is a Yoruba man or because he comes from Lagos, Tinubu is someone I’ve know for the past 17 years, I know who he is and what he is capable of doing.
“BAT Elite Group is a group of young business men, we believe that if goververnment put the right policies in place, business would thrive but wrong policies would affect everyone including the business men, that is why we the elite group fell like we should also contribute our quota, we have come out to identify with him because we believe if good government is in place, business will thrive and business men will do better.”

While calling for support for Tinubu, he stated that he has the capacity to transform the country and make it better if elected.
“We need to elect a leader with track records, he has done it before and he can do it again.”
