Bola Ahmed Tinubu, presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has vowed to dialgue with with agitators in igboland and transform the South East if elected president of Nigeria.
Pendulum Nigeria reports that Tinubu stated this on Thursday during his presidential campaign rally in Ebonyi state.
While addressing stakeholders and teeming supporters of APC at the presidential campaign rally that took place at the Pa Ngele Oruta township stadium, Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State, Tinubu vowed to move the country forward and as well bring greater development to the South-East region, and dialogue with agitators, if elected the president of the country at the 2023 general election.
Tinubu, however, tasked citizens of the southeast region, especially the people of Ebonyi State to vote massively for the governorship candidate and all other candidates of the party, adding that the people must protect their votes after voting in the 2023 general election.
According to him: “With the spirit of oneness, togetherness and unity, we will ensure the process of our country. It is only a progressive party that can change Nigeria. For the past 16 yrs of the PDP government, we had no steady electricity in Nigeria.
“We are progressives, we will do the right thing and we will move Nigeria forward. We will make southeast Nigeria, a Taiwan of Asia. We came in 2015 and we came to realize that transformation is a must for economic resuscitation and progress.”
He averred: “Our children’s education is very important for our today and tomorrow and we are working hard because education is the greatest weapon to poverty. We are going to reform our schools.”
He also said: “We want peace, we will talk to all the agitators, this thing is not done by conflicts. Whatever you say, our progress, our achievement of education of our children is very important for our today and tomorrow.
“We know the fact that education is the greatest weapon against poverty. We are going to give our children education and reform our schools.
“We are not going to be in crisis like other parties; we are going to succeed and we are going to win this election” he stated.
