A group, The Disciples of Jagaban (DOJ) ,has threatened to drag to court the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, if he refuses to contest for the Presidency in 2023.
National Coordinator of DOJ, Comrade Abdulhakeem Adegoke, said in an interview with journalists that the reason why Nigerians have to take him to court was because suffering in Nigeria was enough and they know Tinubu’s capacity and strategy for change.

“We know his capacity to change the scenario, his capacity to change things from negative to positive.
“He has done it in Lagos State which is supposed to be the headquarters of criminals and bandits, but he turned them into good persons.”
Politicians from across the North had converged on Kaduna, Saturday, under the aegis of The Disciples of Jagaban ( DOJ) ,to flag off sensitization of the electorates to the continuous voter registration ( CVR).
Comrade Abdulhakeem Adegoke ,said their aim was to boost the support base of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
He said as far back as 2019, they resolved that if Tinubu refused to come out for the Presidential race in 2023,they would take him to court.
He said the DOJ was in support of good governance and would continue to encourage Nigerians to support Tinubu.
“Presently, the DOJ remains the first and the most widely accepted political institution for Tinubu’s 2023 Presidential ambition. We however, appreciate all other groups that came after us because we cannot do it alone, especially with the deluge of resistance and opposition towards our principal,“ he said.
“EndSars and the Yoruba nation agitators, those who focused on our principal but hidden under something different, entirely, some of us relocated back to the South West, to make sure where ever they move to, we were there to preach unity, love and harmony to all other tribes living in Yoruba land, Today we give all glory to Almighty God all the fake and fabricated journey has come to an end.
“As at then, some Nigerians believed it was too early; but we went ahead all the same. With the support of many trained intelligentsia and many men of God in both faiths in our midst, we prepared for all the attacks that happened before the criminally-minded perpetrators carried them out.
“Just a month before the botched EndSARS protests of October 2020, DOJ called for a national prayer for our principal; but, some were looking at the request as if we did not know what we were doing at that time. When the attacks began, we stood by our principal, defending him against the hijackers of the protests that many innocent Nigerians ignorantly got involved in, without knowing the real devilish mission of some of their sponsors. We thank the Almighty God for His mercies on our principal despite the evil-minded attacks.
“When the agitation for Yoruba nation was brewing, DOJ realized that this is going to be a completely Yoruba affair; so, we moved down to Yoruba land under the umbrella of Yoruba Welfare Group (YWG) to take effective steps to counter the attackers in Yoruba land; some innocent Yorubas were also involved because it started, hidden under the umbrella of fighting against kidnapping and banditry across Yoruba land. We followed them gently and ended up preventing them from mixing the bitter truth with their fabrication of lies. We were already aware that all these would be coming.
“We are now calling on all Tinubu supporters to get prepared because some more are still coming. Instead of trying to manipulate others if we, the leading ones, are not grumbling not to see other behind us, why must those who are just coming want to swallow those who have been labouring before the establishment of your own? Please let all Tinubu groups be focused and stop manipulating ourselves.
Today, we in DOJ, appreciate seeing many springing up behind us, we welcome you all,” he said.
Various groups and associations were represented on the occasion.
Distinguished personalities at the occasion were Senator Mohammed Sani Saleh, Engineer Muhammad Namadi, Alhaji Dangulguli, Alhaji Lawal Meyere, among others.
Speaking in an interview with journalists on the sidelines of the voter registration sensitization exercise, Comrade Abdulhakeem Adegoke said as far as they were concerned, they believed they needed more foot in the North.
According to him, “From our findings, we found that millions of youths have refused to come out for the voter registration. With that, we are not safe. We need to let these young Nigerians realize that when you need a good governance, and you did not participate in the registration of those who will choose a good leader, this is totally zero. “If there must be positive changes that we are talking about, its already identifying the good among the bad among us, in person of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“We are not adopting Tinubu because he is a Muslim or Christian or Yoruba. We adopted him because he is a leader, based on his past experience, his past achievements and past involvement. We adopted him based on that and there is nothing.
“Many people come out to say why Tinubu. But they’ve not come out to say this is a candidate better than him,” he said.
Alhaji Meyere said on the occasion that if the youth are not sensitised to register, the nation would be losing a colossal number of the voting population.
Engr. Namadi said they’ve pleaded with the traditional rulers and others who were not happy with the current political arrangement, to come out and be part of the process.
Senator Sani Saleh stressed the Importance of the voter sensitization exercise, pointing out everything they do might come to naught if at the end , the youths are not registered to vote.
According to him, they were out to raise the quality of participation in politics.
He said leadership needs experience which is acquired over time.
“Power belongs to the people. What is that power? It is the voter ‘s card, ” he said.
The woman leader, Maryam Baba, urged women and youths to register and be active participants in the political process, come 2023.
Major General Hassan Usman, retired, said on the occasion that even though he is a security consultant, the current situation in Nigeria gave him sleepless nights, therefore, he advocated that all hands should be on deck to ensure that the youth who have reached the voting age, register and elect a good leader in 2023.
