Sportywap gathers that the group, however, noted that the former Lagos state governor has not declared his intention to contest the number one political position yet.
According to the group, whenever Tinubu seeks to contest for any position, including the presidency in 2023, he will enjoy overwhelming support of the group.
Maiturare said the APC chieftain has contributed immensely to the North politically. He also noted Tinubu’s coordination of the southwest for an overwhelming support that brought about the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 and 2019.
Maiturare said: “Let it be known that Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu has not declared to contest for any position yet. Instead, he is solidly behind President Muhammadu Buhari and giving him the required support. “In any case, whenever he seeks to contest for any position, including the presidency in 2023, we are ready to give him overwhelming support, and we therefore dissociate ourselves from such irresponsible act of some minority youth from the north.”
The call by Governor Nasir El-Rufai for the abolition of power rotation in the country was condemned by the group.
Maiturare added: “In the same vein, we wish to state categorically that Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai’s statement against the zoning arrangement in place is uncalled for and should not be given any serious thought because he speaks only for himself and not for the north.”

The CNG criticized Tinubu for working against the appointment of Igbo leaders to strategic roles despite northern support.
