This was contained in a statement signed by its Chairman, Barrister Mikaila Abubakar Danfulani on Monday August 28, 2023 in Abuja.

“Engr. Auwal Ibrahim has been a very close partner to political gladiators worldwide, he is the founder and convener of TINUBU SHETTIMA GLOBAL SUPPORT GROUP. A vigorous campaign strategist, skilled in developmental relationship with all classes of humans. A vibrant and young entrepreneur. If given the chance, we believe that he will deliver to the aspiration of the Nigerian youth,” they declared.
