Governor Badaru explained that Asiwaju Tinubu had impacted individuals, groups and states and expressed the belief that he would improve the lives of Nigerians.
The Coordinator of the Directorate, Senator Grace Bent, said the major focus of the Directorate was to manage and resolve the public religious outcry against APC’s 2023 same-faith presidential ticket and buy back the affection of some Nigerians upset with the candidature.
