The position of the YCE was made known by its Lagos State chapter in a communique after its quarterly meeting.
The communique, issued over the weekend by its Chairman, Secretary, National Treasurer and National Welfare Officer, Francis Akinikawe, Clement Fadipe, Aremu Akindele and Funmi Jabaru, described Tinubu as a detribalised Nigerian who has shown the quality of a good leader as the governor of Lagos State.
The communiqué said: “The Lagos YCE however congratulates Tinubu for his victory and emergence as the flagbearer of the party, pledging their support towards the actualisation of his Presidential ambition in 2023.
“We believe that you are capable of leading the nation despite challenges of insecurity, economic downturn, and we know you can turn the nation around for the better.
“We want the world to know that Bola Tinubu is a phenomenon in the world of politics. We are not against anyone’s group or aspirations but all we are saying is that Asiwaju is the right person for the job.
“He is the best man for the job at this period while our support for his candidacy is borne out of his sterling performances and track record of achievements over the years as fisher of men with just and equitable management of men and re-distribution of the available resources under his watch at every given opportunity.”
