Ms. Buhari appointed National Coordinator of Tinubu Support Group
The Tinubu Support Organization (TSO) has announced the appointment of Katsina State Deputy Governor’s wife, Hajiya Mariam Buhari, as National Coordinator.
Naija News reports that this was made known by the group’s national secretary, Otunba Gboyega Bada, at its secretariat in Abuja’s central business district on Thursday.
He debunked reports that Ms Buhari would take on the role of chief executive of the Tinubu Support Organization.
Bada said: “I salute the efforts of the DG. Sulaiman remains relevant to this organization. He is the face of this organization and no one can take his ability or his foresight.
“Today we decided to have some kind of restructuring to improve our performance. We needed someone with the ability, who can move around and who has unfettered access not only to our directors but to all regions, APC leaders and other groups.
“In the Tinubu support organization, we look for voters and who or where we can find them. We also wanted a distribution good enough to take into account gender equality. That’s why she (Mariam ) was appointed National Coordinator. After all, what a man can do, a woman can do better.”
For her part, Mariam Buhari promised to use the experience she gained during her campaign for the emergence of Buhari in 2015 to influence the organization.
She says, “I had been President Muhamadu Buhari’s North West Coordinator in 2015 where I played a vital role through hard work, recommendations and credibility.
“This time I am sure that I am able to bring out massive results and massive votes for Bola Ahmed Tinubu In sha Allah.
“Before today, I have already set up my structure for the campaign. I assure you that I have 100% assurance for Nigerians that the North West Zone will be delivered to Asiwaju by the grace of God.
“My structure is already on the ground and I have gone far. I’ve reached the entire Northwest area.
Mariam, a graduate of Kaduna Polytechnic and wife of Deputy Governor of Katsina State, Mannir Yakubu, a close relative of Buhari, will be assisted at the TSO by another female leader, Ms. Ayodele Fatunsin.
