The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu has promised to continue with the developmental programmes of President Muhammadu Buhari should he emerge as the next president of the country.
The former Lagos state governor said this at the APC South-East grand finale rally in Owerri, on Tuesday, February 14, 2023.
Tinubu said that the Peoples Democratic Party refused to move the country forward when they held the chance.
He said that Buhari’s eight year reign was a retooling process, adding that he would invest in education, build infrastructure and be prudent, should he be elected as the next president.
He said, “PDP stole Nigeria’s treasure. President Buhari’s eight years is a retooling process. PDP are liars. We will continue with developmental programmes of APC, it will not stop. Imo is the destination for tourism, we will add value to real estate in Imo state, invest in education, build and reconstruct your roads in Imo. No more issue of ASUU strike. We will be prudent and manage revenue generation capacity, we will bring peace, we will work with the state to ensure security.”
Buhari, who handed over APC’s flag to Tinubu, said that the party’s presidential candidate would deliver should he succeed him.
The Governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, assured the party that his state would deliver for APC in the February 25 presidential election.
Uzodinma said, “Imo people are grateful to Mr President. We sought your support for building of roads and fighting insecurity in Imo State and you approved. It is time to reciprocate that support by voting for APC.”
The Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, said that the Igbos would vote for APC because of the Second Niger Bridge constructed by the Buhari regime.
Governor Babajide Sanwu-Olu of Lagos State, said Igbo people living in his state are supporting Tinubu.
