The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubuhas said that he will explore the potentials, industrialize and checkmate the menace of gully erosion in Anambra state.
Tinubu stated this while addressing crowd at Ekwueme Square during his campaign tour to Anambra state in mobilization of votes for February 25 Presidential election.
He said commended the intelligence and brilliance of governor Chukwuma Soludo and promised to work with him to build strong economy and development.
“I salute your son vision and courage. He is my friend and still my friend. He is a brilant man and he has the brain and he knows the road, I will work with him when I win the election. You people should vote for me as you voted governor Soludo.
“PDP is fabricating lies against me. I did not kill anybody, I’m a smart man and focused man. You have to ask PDP how long it will take them to bring their lies from Port Harcourt to Anambra. PDP shared your asset among themselves calling it privatization. Atiku said that he is candidate of the North, is it not division among us?.
The former governor of Lagos State who was accompanied to the rally by his Vice Presidential candidate Alh. Kashim Shittima and other party stawarts described his candidature as hope, joy, happiness and full networking.
“PVC is the answer to make me your president, please collect your PVC to vote for APC in February 25” he stated.
The National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) Anambra state chapter during the rally endorsed Tinubu for next month presidential election.
Meanwhile, Tinubu shunned Anambra State traditional rulers council and governor Chukwuma Soludo who waited for him at government house Awka to receive him but Tinubu who came to the rally ground direct from the airport after the rally drove back to the airport to Cross River state without meeting the traditional rulers and governor Soludo as scheduled.
The rally was greeted with large crowd with APC members and supporters mobilize to the venue as the Ekwieme Square was filled to it’s capacity..
