The Bayelsa State chapter of the Tinubu-Shettima Independent Campaign Council (ICC), has commenced a door-to-door, hamlet-to-hamlet and neighbourhood-to-neighbourhood (DDHHNN) campaign for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The State Chairman of the council, Prince Preye Aganaba, said on Sunday in Yenagoa that the unique approach was initiated to spread the gospel of Tinubu’s competence, capacity, fitness and experience in all the nooks and crannies of Bayelsa.
Speaking when he led members of the state ICC to visit a former Bayelsa Deputy Governor, Werinipre Seibarugu, in Yenagoa, Aganaba said the campaign approach would also help to correct misinformation, half truth and outright lies against Tinubu.
He said their findings showed that persons against Tinubu’s candidature had not come to know him personally and only depended on lies told to them by opposition political leaders.
Aganaba said: “Our conviction springs from the fact that nobody will know the character, personality and competence of Tinubu without calling on him to lead this country. Nobody will know his qualities without falling in love with his leadership style.
“We believe that people must be informed so that they will stop speaking and acting out of ignorance. That is why we believe that we must meet people one-on-one to help them understand the person of Asiwaju and join the winning train,”.
Aganaba explained that the ICC was formed to complement the efforts of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) with a mandate to solicit votes at the grassroots and sensitise voters to increase APC support base.
