It’s less than 30 days to the general election and the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu seems to be getting more endorsements from the people.
This time, it’s from the Southwest arm of the Association of Market Women and Men of Nigeria.
In their numbers, the market men and women from Lagos, Ogun, Osun, Oyo, Ekiti, Kwara states and other parts of the country, thronged the Onikan Stadium, venue of the association’s Mega rally, declaring their support for the APC Presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, his running mate, Kashim Shettima and the Governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwoolu.
They were warmly received by their leader, Folashade Tinubu-Ojo, who in her usual manner danced and celebrated members of the association.
Deputy Governor of Lagos, Obafemi Hamzat, the Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Christianna Afuye were among dignitaries that came out to talk about the candidacy of Bola Tinubu.
Iya-oloja General, Folashade Tinubu-Ojo together with the wife of the governor of Lagos, Ibijoke Sanwoolu, former first lady of the state and APC Senatorial candidate, Idiyat Adebule walked round the stadium, calling on the association to vote for the party in the coming polls.
Without much talks, the association appears convinced about the party’s victory at the polls.
TINUBU PROMISES TO TAME EROSION, MAKE ANAMBRA INDUSTRIAL HUB
The presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has promised to fix the erosion menace ravaging Anambra State.
He said he will handle the perennial challenge like he tackled the Lagos Atlantic ocean.
Tinubu also said he was not afraid of anyone in the presidential race.
The APC leader spoke on Tuesday at Dr Alex Ekwueme square in Awka, Anambra State during the continuation of his campaign.
Tinubu said he was not like the one they called Peter in the Bible that denied Christ three times before the cock crowed in the morning.
According to him: “What that means is that I’m a thinker, I’m smart and I’m a doer.”
The mammoth crowd at the square kept shouting Asiwaju, Asiwaju, interrupting his speech intermittently.
The former Lagos Governor assured youths of job opportunities, promising to convert the State into one of the nation’s economic centres.
Tinubu said: “We want to make Anambra a memorable productive state in memory of our own friend, Chuba Okadigbo and our Governor General, Sen. Hope Uzodimma, (Onwa Imo).
“I’m here today to publicize the promise of development we made, the exploration and industrialization Anambra is known for.
” You know me, the Lagos boy, I tamed the Atlantic ocean; the same way we will check erosion in Anambra.
“We’ll make the value of your property one thousand times your investment. We’ll create jobs for our youth, industrialize and make the state one of the economic centres.
“We’re not like other parties. When they bring up their lies again, ask them how long it will take their lies to travel from Port Harcourt to Onitsha, to Aba.
” For 16 years, PDP lied, sharing our assets among themselves in the name of privatisation.
“The city boy is here, joy, happiness, prosperity and good employment are here. Just make sure your PVC is intact. With me in Lagos, I didn’t discriminate. Your PVC is your mandate.
“When Atiku said he is the only candidate from the north. Is that not a division among us? When I started paying WAEC for students, I didn’t discriminate, I paid for everybody, whether Christian or Muslim.”
While asking the people of the State to vote for him like they overwhelmingly voted for Soludo, Tinubu promised not to disappoint them.
“I brought your son and made him my friend. I didn’t say he’s not a Muslim. Instead, he became the economic adviser to Buhari.
” He’s Charles Soludo, I salute his vision, he’s a brilliant man, he a thinker, he knows the way, we’ll work together, inclusively.
“When I’ll become the President. The way you voted for Soludo is the way you’ll vote for me. The man who led here, that call himself Peter Obi, just like the biblical Peter, who denied Jesus before the cock crew three times, will deny all the promises he made you,” he added.
