Erstwhile members of defunct Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM), Muslim/Christian Youths and Elders’ Forum as well as Genuine Governance Group (GGG) have declared their support for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, ahead of the 2023 general election.
PDM was founded by the late Maj.-Gen. Shehu Musa Yar’Adua (retd.) in 1994, but later became a registered political party in August 2013.
PDM, which later became a political movement of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was deregistered along with some other political parties in 2020 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The group’s National Leader, Chief Frank Igwebuike, and the National Secretary, Hajia Maimunat Ahmadu, told reporters yesterday in Abuja that the defunct PDM still maintains offices in the 36 states of the federation and Abuja.
Igwebuike said the movement had carried out a highly sophisticated work study on the Nigerian political turf, saying the man the cap fits is Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He said: “In times like these, only great men can be called to help in bringing forth good governance and protection of our collective patrimony.
“Finally, arising from our combined National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the entire group, we hereby accept to work for the success of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the 2023 presidential election.
“The coming in of Genuine Governance Group (aka Triple G), a body made up of former national chairmen of political parties, ex-legislators, the civil society and opinion leaders in our country, Nigeria, is the concretised union that has metamorphosed into the united, focused and tactical organisation, that is set to mobilise and support a very credible candidate that has capacity, capability, courage, confidence and carriage.”
