He then told how Prabowo was made an honorary member of the Ansor Youth Movement or GP Ansor.
“So at that time he was present at the Ansor event and was given an honorary member and that was 28 years ago,” said Nusron.
“So he is not someone else and not a stranger, but all of our family, the movement family, the family of friends, and the Nahdlatul Ulama family in general and at large,” said Nusron.
Furthermore, Nusron prayed for Prabowo’s success in participating in the 2024 presidential election as a presidential candidate.
“God willing, Allah will bless and make Pak Haji Prabowo Subianto president of Indonesia for the 2024-2029 period, continuing the leadership of President Joko Widodo,” said Nusron.

“So if we support it together, I don’t think it’s anything other than us,” said Nusron.
Apart from that, he also responded whether the narrative that Prabowo was not a stranger to NU was a way to attract NU’s own votes?
“By being here, we are looking for votes, right,” said Nusron.
