South East, South South youths stranded in Lagos, unable to see Tinubu after jogging from Yenagoa


South East and South South youth members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) who jogged to Lagos with high hopes have become disappointed. They jogged from Yenegoa, the Bayelsa State capital, in support of the party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Senator Bola Tinubu, with the expectation that he would receive them upon their arrival in the country’s former capital – a distance of 360 kilometres (224 miles).

However, that had not happened as at last night – two full days after their arrival on Tuesday evening, October 11.

“They are stranded in Lagos, unable to see Tinubu after jogging from Yenagoa to support his presidential aspiration,” an informed source told News Express. “They are now trying to see if Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu can receive them,” the source added.

The youths, under the auspices of South-East/South-South Jogging for Tinubu Campaign Initiative, constituted a team of fitness enthusiasts to embark on the exercise.

The jogging was flagged off at the Bayelsa State Secretariat of APC by the state APC Chairman, Dr Dennis Otiotio, enjoying warm reception by APC leaderships at the corridors of the Yenagoa-Lagos route at Delta, Edo and Ondo and Ogun states.

They arrived Nigeria’s economic capital a day ahead of schedule, with the Coordinator, Mr Samuel Adaga, telling the media that the expedition would terminate with a reception by Tinubu.

The 25-member team, among them eight females, drew at least two representatives from each of the 11 states in the South-East and South-South, and executives of the group.
