A political group, Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT) Ambassadors has disclosed the biggest threat to the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate is the people from the Southwest.
The Interim National Coordinator of BAT Ambassadors, Chief Afolabi Ekungba, stated this during an interview with newsmen on Sunday
Ekungba claimed that people from the region often shoot down their own people and set standards that don’t politically work anywhere.
He said, “The people of Southwest will want to set standards that don’t politically work anywhere as if they are angels.
“They will always come up with different methods to shoot down their own. What they did to Chiefs Obafemi Awolowo and MKO Abiola, are good examples.
“We, therefore, need a group that is adequately strong enough to address this.”
Speaking further, the former governorship candidate in Ondo State explained that the BAT group was formed to address the misgivings of the Southwest.
He noted that the group had devised two major strategies, including the mass movement strategy of the room-to-room campaign.
“We plan to reach every Yoruba man and woman, boy and girl one-on-one,” he added.
The APC stalwart also disclosed that the other strategy was to use social and conventional media to engage the people.
He argued that the Tinubu and Shettima joint presidential ticket represented practical and demonstrable evidence of performance.
Ekungba said if allowed to be replicated at the national level, the ticket will in the shortest possible time produce the desired national growth and development.
He stated that more than 90 percent of the members of the BAT Ambassadors are people that are not really interested in politics but had come out of their shells to go all the way for Tinubu.
