According to the statement, the organizing committee of the concert is chaired by the son of President-elect, Seyi Tinubu, “who guided the party’s victorious youth engagement efforts during the campaign and was instrumental in the effective mobilization of youth votes, using his ample professional experience and global network.

“Seyi Tinubu will be deputies by Kashim Shettima Jr as Vice Chairperson, while the APC national youth leader, Dayo Israel, Damilotun Aderemi, and Barrister Ismaeel Ahmed will all serve as Co Vice-Chairpersons.

According to the media sub-committee, participants are expected from across the six geo-political zones in the country, making the concert a national celebration of young people whose belief in Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and optimism about the country’s future under his leadership made all the difference in the contest.

The statement said: “It is an inclusive celebration of young people across the country who knocked on doors, persuaded friends, braved great risks, and stood firm to ensure the safe delivery of the Renewed Hope agenda of our next president, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“The concert is a way of acknowledging and appreciating their sacrifice and also an opportunity for us all to merry and network as we anticipate the formal assumption of office of our victorious City Boy.”
