Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator Bola Tinubu has promised to turn Anambra State to an industrial hub of South East, if elected president.
He made the promise while addressing mammoth crowd of APC supporters during his Anambra State Presidential rally at Dr. Alex Ekwueme Square, Awka.
Tinubu acknowledge the industrial prowess of people of the South East, urged them to collect their PVCs and vote for him.
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 publicise the promise of development we made, the exploration and industrialization Anambra is known for.
Asiwaju Tinubu said ” You know me, the Lagos boy, I tamed the Atlantic ocean; the same way we will check erosion in Anambra.
He added that this will improve the value of property in the South East “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.
Tinubu described the Anambra State Governor Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo as brilliant ” 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.
Governor of Imo State and other speakers admonished people of Anambra State to ensure they vote all APC candidates in the coming elections.
NBA APOLOGISES TO NIGERIANS OVER FAILURE TO ADDRESS ISSUES OF NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
The president of the Nigerian Bar Association Yakubu Maikyau has apologized to Nigerians for the abdication of their role.
He noted that members of the Bar, are reputed more for how much fees they charge their clients as opposed to the discharge of their primary call which is to offer guidance for the advancement of the cause of the country.
This apology, Mr Maikyau says, has become necessary because, no other group of professionals other than lawyers, are called to this privileged position.
Sustainable development goal 16 is focused on improving people’s lives by reducing violence, improving access to justice, and promoting effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions.
Strong, effective, transparent, and accountable institutions are essential for sustainable development and critical for governments to deliver services to their citizens.
As Nigerians go to the polls on 25th February to elect a president, lawyers are by the privilege of their training, are expected to position themselves to ask the right questions, interrogate the system and call to account, those saddled with the responsibility of providing security for Nigerians.
This is to guide Nigerians in making the right choice of candidate.
This one-day dialogue organized by the NBA on security, economy and administration of justice seeks to engage Presidential candidates
This in the hope that whoever wins the election, would have a basis to further engage and be accountable to the people of Nigeria.
The NBA president says lawyers need to do more, than focus on the remunerations they get from their clients.
President Muhammadu Buhari, who was represented by the Secretary to the government of the federation Boss Mustapha, noted that government is continuous and no one government can solve all the country’s problems.
The inclusion of youth and women in decision-making is an aspect of governance the deputy secretary general of the United Nations wants to the incoming administration to allow.
