The statement by Sola Atere , Director Media and Publicity of the Kabiru Tanimu Turaki Presidential Campaign Organization , said the endorsement came after the 18th Annual Missionary Conference held by the leadership of the Northern Missionary Forum, that of the Global Mission Ministry Centre, Idaho-USA and A Hope For You Foundation, Taipei-Taiwan at the Centre for Art and Culture in Abuja.
The endorsement was contained in a letter to the aspirant, signed by the national coordinator of the Forum, David Ina.
According to him” the leadership of the body has declared its unalloyed support for Kabiru Tanimu’s quest to lead the country at this critical period, in recognition of his steadfastness, consistency, commitment to worthy beliefs, and his sterling leadership qualities when he was a Minister and also outside public service.”

The Forum, however, demanded that the aspirant should make it a priority to work for the good of the people, build and strengthen government institutions, and not individuals, give attention to rural infrastructural development to help the inhabitants fulfill their basic needs and also live a socially and economically productive life, in addition to providing skills acquisition programmes for rural youths and women, especially the young widows.
The Forum which is involved in rural outreach empowerment programmes, said that it will announce the endorsement of Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, to all participants at its next event scheduled for July 19 – 22, at Vadeikya LGA, in Benue State.
