The immediate past chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu State, Dr. Ben Nwoye has boasted that the presidential candidate of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will garner enough votes from the South-East.
He spoke during the unveiling of a campaign building for the Tinubu-Shettima Independent Campaign Group in Enugu.
Nwoye insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration had achieved a lot in spite of the challenges of insecurity bedeviling the country.
He said Tinubu should be allowed to sustain the good works Buhari would leave behind.
He recounted the many landmark achievements the Buhari administration had recorded to include the paying of minimum wage of N30,000, as well as increasing the allowances of the members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
Nwoye further noted that the presidency, under the APC, embarked on tremendous infrastructural development in the country, especially in the South-East.
“There is need for continuity and even though there is a problem of security, it should not undermine the achievement of the APC-led government.
“It was the APC under Buhari that introduced the primary school feeding project,” he stated.
He disclosed that all stakeholders in the State had agreed to work for Tinubu come 2023, adding that nobody will stop the presidential moving train of APC.
“We want to ensure that Tinubu/Shettima will get enough votes in the South-East.
“I advise supporters of other parties that are saying that APC will not campaign in the South-East to bury the idea. We have thousands of supporters that will work for the APC,” he stated.
