ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has reassured the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, that people in the South East will vote for him during the forthcoming 2023 elections.
The Governor gave the reassurance on Sunday when he met with the support organisation of the former Lagos State governor under the aegis of The Asiwaju Group.
According to a statement jointly signed by Dr Mustapha Abdullahi, AbdulRasak Danjuma, Ibrahim Onimisi and Muawiyah Muye, the group disclosed that the meeting was held to discuss logistics and strategy for the South-East region ahead of the September political campaign.
Abdullahi described Tinubu as a good man who deserved to be encouraged to make things happen positively for the country
Abdullahi stated also that TAG appreciates the value he (Tinubu) brought into Nigerian politics after his reign as Lagos State Governor.
He said, “He is one man that knows how to create wealth and believes in merit, if you have the competence he is looking for, he engages you, that is the kind of man Nigeria needs now.”
Reacting to his statement, Uzodinma praised the national spread and giant strides of TAG.
Governor Uzodinma also volunteered his support for the TAG South-East Executives to facilitate their grassroots mobilisation for Tinubu.
“What we need in Nigeria is a good leader who is informed, and can harness and allocate the resources of the country equitably. I strongly believe that Tinubu is capable and the South East will give him maximum support.
“Today, whether you like it or not, the party to beat is APC. I come from the South-East. From 1999 to 2015, we were promised the second Niger Bridge but nothing happened until 2015 when President Muhammadu Buhari committed to the Project.
“It would be a thing of ingratitude for anybody to come from the South-East region to talk about President Buhari or the APC neglecting the eastern bloc,” he said.
