Alhaja Fatima Bello, the President of the women group of the Tinubu Support Organization (TSO), said the body was confident that the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu had a good vision for the country, particularly the womenfolk.

Bello explained that the Central Women Wing of the TSO has a lot of programmes to aid the mobilisation of women in realisation of the group’s political aspiration.

“While most people are aware of Tinubu’s qualities, few are aware of his love for gender equality and equity.

“This is one of the values that has endeared him to us in women circles.

“A lot of women are suffering out there.

“We are pushing for Tinubu because we believe he has so much passion for women. Tinubu answers women first. He cannot even stand to see a woman cry,” she said.

Similarly, Mrs Raliat Abdulsalam, Vice-President of the Central Women Wing, explained that Tinubu has been an exemplary leader.

She said that taking a cue from Tinubu’s  tenure as governor, the APC stalwart was a leader who has never been known to be tribalistic or sectional.

“He has supported people from the North. He has supported people from the south and he is not greedy for power.

“He built people that are still in power today. Most importantly, Tinubu is sympathetic toward the women cause. He supports women every time.

“This dream will come to pass because we have seen a man with a vision; someone that can lead us and help us to survive. We will back him up whenever he decides to run for the president because we have seen the sign of a true leader in him,” Abdulsalam said.

Also, the Director-General of TSO,  Alhaji Aminu Suleiman, said that Tinubu’s sterling track records of leadership qualities and achievements in the areas of human development, democracy and peace building informed the support.

Suleiman, who noted that the organisation was not campaigning, but sensitising the people about what Tinubu represented, said that the organisation saw a better future for the country with Tinubu.

“Like every political support groups, TSO is open to every Nigerian who sees a better future in the leadership of Tinubu, having created a niche for himself while serving as governor of Lagos State.

“His nationalism has also been tested as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” Suleiman said.

The Commander, U.S. Africa Command, U General Stephen Townsend, wrapped up a three-day West African visit February 22-25, 2021, with a stopover in Nigeria to meet with the nation’s leaders and further the long-standing partnership and security cooperation between the two countries.

A press statement by the Embassy on Friday, said: “During the visit, Townsend met with the Nigerian President’s Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, and National Security Adviser, Babagan Monguno, to discuss regional security issues and to express the command’s gratitude for the assistance provided during a hostage rescue operation last year.

“When we asked for their help, the Nigerian government answered the call. Our hostage recovery mission in October would have been impossible without their support.

“They quickly provided assistance that helped the U.S. military to save an American life. That is a strong example of our partnership with Nigeria.”

Townsend also met with senior military officials, including the Minister of Defence, Bashir Salihi Magash, and the Chief of Defence Staff, General Leo Irabor, to talk about on-going cooperation in the region and greater maritime security and threat mitigation.

Nigeria is a key partner in countering violent extremist organizations throughout the Lake Chad Basin.

Townsend said furthermore: “The bilateral relationship between Nigeria and the U.S. is built on several pillars including security cooperation.

“U.S. Africa Command will do our part to advance the security cooperation pillar, so that Nigerians can enjoy the more secure future they all deserve.”

As close partners, the U.S. and Nigeria have worked at ensuring the collaborative relationship continues to grow to include a commitment to interoperability. Nigeria purchased 12 A-29 Super Tucano light attack aircraft, which will be delivered later this year.

“Nigeria’s purchase of A-29 Super Tucano aircraft is another example of their commitment to interoperability and security in the region,” he added. “Our economic relationship with Nigeria is already strong, and we look forward to the continued strengthening of security relationships. Nigeria’s leaders understand the importance of a collaborative approach to ensuring stability in West Africa and partnering on areas of mutual interest.”

The Commander also met with the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard.

Leonard said: “General Townsend’s visit to Nigeria demonstrates the strategic importance the United States places on our bilateral relationship with Nigeria.

“Our security cooperation partnership with Nigeria’s military will strengthen the country’s capabilities to secure land and sea borders, enhance overall security, and combat terrorism in the North East.”

As part of the visit, Townsend participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Nigeria Military National Cemetery to honour those who have given their lives in the service of their nation.

During the visit, the delegation expressed their condolences for the seven service men killed in the crash of a Nigerian Air Force aircraft in Abuja.
