Tinubu Vanguard is a support group for the presidential ambition of APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu.
Jubrin, who is the D-G of the Bola Ahmed Tinubu Support Groups Management Council (BATSGMC), had on Saturday, announced his decision to quit the APC.
He cited irreconcilable differences within the APC in his home state of Kano as reason for his decision.
According to Benjamin, Jubrin has the right to decide which political party is best for him to pursue his ambition.
“We call on the leadership and members of all support groups to remain calm.
“Tinubu is committed to the project of repositioning Nigeria and we are determined to ensure that he gets the opportunity to do so by delivering victory at the polls.
“We call on him to urgently address pending issues within the support groups to enable us work effectively towards achieving success in the party primaries and the general elections,” he said. (NAN)
