The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Cross River state has said it would mobilise not fewer than 50,000 supporters to the UJ Esuene stadium, Calabar, as its presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, storms the ancient city on Tuesday, January 31.
Mr Maurice Effiwat, Co-Chairman of the Local Organising Committee, LOC, for the rally, said this during a press conference held at the Ernest Etim Bassey Press Centre, Calabar on Monday.
Effiwat said the committee had mobilised its members and supporters of the party across the 18 local government areas of the state for the presidential rally.
“The APC presidential rally for Cross River is holding on Jan. 31. As a ruling party, we have mobilised over 50,000 supporters to grace the event at the U.J Esuene Stadium,” he said.
Speaking earlier, LOC Chairman, Senator John Owan Enoh said “The candidacy of Sen. Tinubu is unique because we can judge him from his past record. He has contributed a lot to the growth of democracy in Nigeria and also in nation building.
“The 2023 polls is about who can make things differently and not about a Muslim-Muslim ticket. We believe that Sen. Tinubu will do exceedingly well if elected.”
He called on all party supporters in the state to rally round Tinubu and Shetima and make the rally a huge success.
