This was announced during a convention that was convoked by the Support Group Management Council in Abuja where the supporters of different factions agreed to work together.
Speaking during the occasion, former Borno State governor Kashim Shettima said the support groups are followers and believers in the former Lagos State governor’s vision for Nigeria.
“If you look round this country in search of such a noble character, the count easily falls on the subject of this gathering: Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” Shettima said.
“His story has been told over and again. Martin Luther said the true measure of a man is when he stands in discomfort. Many can tell of how Tinubu served his country even in exile.

Former House of Representatives member Abdulmumin Jibrin said the event was “a gathering of delegates, 2500 of them nominated by the various support groups of the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
“That said, we continue to support President Muhammadu Buhari and his leadership.”
Tinubu last Monday declared his intention to contest the office of the president in the 2023 election.
Among the over 80 groups that attended the meeting were nationwide representatives of Tinubu People’s Network – TPN, the Northern Alliances – NA, the Nigerian Progressives Forum, and many others
