Former chairman of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Enugu state chapter, Dr. Ben Nwoye has boasted that the party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 elections, Bola Ahmed Tinubu will garner enough votes from the South-East.
He spoke confidently during the unveiling of a Tinubu-Shettima campaign building by an independent Campaign Group in the state.
He said the party is working assiduously and they will ensure that many Igbos vote for Tinubu in the presidential election.
According to Nwoye, the APC chieftain will continue the good works of President Buhari, and he added that the current administration had achieved a lot in spite of the security challenges.
The imediate past chairman mentioned some landmark achievements of the Buhari administration which include the increase and payment of minimum wage of N30,000, as well as increasing the allowances of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members to N33,000.
Nwoye further noted that the presidency, under the APC, embarked on tremendous infrastructural development in the country, especially in the South-East.
He said; “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”.
The APC chieftain 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 added.
