The Progressive Coalition of Entertainers (PCE) has declared support for Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 election.

 

The group, which is said to include over 60 celebrities, met with Mudashiru Obasa, the speaker of the Lagos house of assembly on Friday.

 

NAN reports that PCE, led by Saheed Balogun, paid a courtesy visit to the speaker at the assembly complex.

 

Obasa urged Nollywood actors, producers, and entertainers of like minds not to relent in their effort to ensure victory for the APC presidential candidate in the election.

 

The speaker thanked the group for their efforts to ensure a successful presidential election victory for Tinubu.

 

Obasa further tasked them to sustain the relationship that exists between them and the state government.

 

“Our task is to involve people, enlighten them and make them see reasons why they should continue to support APC. We know the group has always supported the party and we want them to continue,” he said.

 

 “To us, every vote is an investment because every single vote counts.”

 

Balogun, while speaking, said the group of “over 60 celebrities” decided to come together to endorse Tinubu to the people of the state because he had “turned Lagos into a smart city.”

 

He said Tinubu laid the foundation that successive governments latched on to, putting Lagos in an enviable position among other states.

 

Outlining some of the group’s activities, the actor said they hope to influence thoughts on social media and also embark on door-to-door engagements.

 

 “Since the campaign has commenced, the artistes, having large followers on social media, see it as an opportunity to reach out and engage prospective voters,” Balogun added.

 

“This is because we see Tinubu as one who had done a lot to qualify as the next president of Nigeria and our hope is to continue to release the presidential candidate’s achievements.

 

“Asiwaju has done well and it is time to pay back. Every successive government continues to build on his foundation.”
