The presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has promised to fix the erosion menace currently ravaging Anambra State.
He said like he did tackle effectively the perennial challenge of the Lagos Atlantic ocean, the people of Anambra state should be rest assured of the erosion being history once he becomes president.
Tinubu said this on Tuesday at the party’s rally held at Dr Alex Ekwueme square in Awka, Anambra State with a mammoth crowd in attendence in support of the APC flagbearer.
The former Lagos state governor said that he is unafraid of anyone competing against him for the presidential post.
He said he is a thinker who is smart unlike the one they called Peter in the Bible that denied Christ three times before the cock crowed in the morning.
The APC presidential candidate 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 publicize the promise of development we made, the exploration and industrialization Anambra is known for.
“You know me, the Lagos boy, I tamed the Atlantic ocean; the same way we will check erosion in Anambra.
“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.”
Tinubu promised not to disappoint the people of the state as they go all out to vote for him as they did vote for incumbent governor, Charles Soludo.
“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.
” 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.
