Doyin Okupe, a former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has said that Senate President, Bukola Saraki, will be President Buhari’s biggest challenge during the 2019 general elections.
Okupe said this during an interview with Channels Television while speaking on the defections from the All Progressives Congress (APC), that took place both in the Senate and House of Representatives.
According to him, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will accept any individual or parties that want to join them.
“It’s regrettable now but I was one of those who felt if defectors wanted to go, they should go. PDP has been humble, they will take any individual or parties ready to move. 2019 for me is about Saraki and President Buhari. Saraki is becoming the most important politician outside the presidency,” Okupe said
10,000 benefit as Asiwaju’s BAT MEDICS holds Free Medical Outreach In Jos, Asaba
Access to basic medical healthcare is a major challenge faced by most people living in rural environments in Nigeria. Taking note of the problems associated with the inability to access affordable healthcare facilities and healthcare kits in their immediate environment, The Delta and Plateau state All Progressive Congress (APC) Campaign Organization in collaboration with the Bola Ahmed Tinubu Medical Outreach, BAT MEDICS are taking action to enhance access to free healthcare services, thereby putting joy and happiness in the faces of Residents at the weekend.
The Medical Outreach, which took place at two locations in Jos namely; the Islamic primary school Bauchi road, and Tundun Wada as well as the APC Campaign office in Asaba in Delta State had over 10,000 beneficiaries from the BAT MEDICS initiative in attendance to support the Presidential hopeful of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The outreach witnessed a high turnout of residents at both locations in a move to benefit from the medical treatment of BAT MEDICS including elderly people in an atmosphere full of joy.
While addressing the newsmen, the Director General and Head Convener of BAT MEDICS, Pharm.

Onimisi affirmed that enough drugs are available for the people. For instance, people with eye challenges, high blood pressure, malaria and Typhoid, among many others will be attended to, as there is enough equipment to take care of them.
According to him, those who are tested and needed surgery will be referred to Jos Teaching hospital and the bills will be paid by Asiwaju.
One of the beneficiaries, who
commented on behalf of others stated, “our joy knows no bounds because most of us have gone to one hospital or the other but couldn’t have access to the required medical services due to financial incapability. We can’t take care of our health challenges, hence, we appreciate Asiwaju Tinubu for bringing free Medical care to our doorstep”. She, therefore, prayed for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu that his wish to become the president of this nation will come to pass while promising to do their best by voting for and mobilising for his victory.
Another beneficiary from the Muslim community, Mariam Awwah Ballo said, ” Asiwaju is my second father when I had an accident, someone connects me to Asiwaju and he paid my treatment bills, again I am having eye challenges and recommended glasses were given to me at the Asiwaju Medical Outreach, he is the man that the cap fits”, she said.
Meanwhile, The Chairman of Jos North Local government area, Shehu Bala Usman appreciated Asiwaju for his kind gesture and assured him that the local government would mobilize for him and vote for him.
Similarly, the Asaba director of medicals APC Campaign Council Dr Benson Ayodele Cole, who welcome everyone to the Medical Outreach organized by the Bola Ahmed Tinubu Medical Team, explained that the importance of the Initiative is to care for the less privileged who are having health challenges across the state and provide them Medical needs.
A male beneficiary (name withheld) in Asaba appreciated the health Initiative. He said “I was given new eyeglasses due to my eye challenges as a civil servant, this will help me more to read.” Tinubu is the next president of this country, he knows what his people want at appropriate time. He added.

Fidelis Onakoma, the publicity secretary of Atiku Support Organization, Anambra state chapter spoke onbehalf of all members across 30 states today January 19, 2023 at the APC-PCC office in Abuja. He attributed their decision to abandon the Atiku campaign because they are not recognised for their hard work. They however concluded that they believe in the structure of Tinubu and his agenda for Nigerians.
According to his statement, “What we want is to be incorporated into the activities of APC in our various states and at the national level. Atiku Support Organization is the leading support organization of PDP campaign council. It’s the only support group that Atiku himself created and he made his son to be chairman. What we want is to be given that mandate to continue, go back and bring those support groups on board. After winning the election, we want all ASO members to be recognized.
“Atiku youths have seen how asiwaju runs his organisation and campaign.
For that reason, we’ve all decided to leave for the Tinubu Support Organisation under the Youth wing. I assure you that we joined the APC in good faith,” he averred.
Welcoming the new members, secretary of the presidential campaign council of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of 2023, Hon. James Abiodun Faleke described the defection as a step in the right direction, saying the APC and Asiwaju has contributed a lot in the development of Nigeria.
Faleke thanked the front runners of the group. He appreciated their struggle and asured them of a fair treatment before and after Asiwaju emerges.
He said, “On behalf of our principals, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima Mustapha, the APC PCC welcome you all.
“Your grievances are well noted and it’s not late to realize that you were in the wrong place. But because Asiwaju is a party for all, it is important that you all have on record Asiwaju’s performance when it comes to reward. The basic issues here is lack of reward from where you are coming from. One of the major thing Tinubu is known for apart from developmental structure is his reward system”.
Another delight of the defection was when the son of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Seyi pledged to pay the tuition fee of Mrs. Hannah Titus children.
Titus is a widow and Kogi state coordinator. She was enlisted as one of the beneficiary of Seyi Tinubu’s foundation.
