Governor of Plateau state and Director-General APC presidential campaign council, Simon Lalong says Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu has paid his dues and it’s time to reap the fruits of his labour.
He made the statement in Ilorin, Kwara state, during the presidential campaign rally on Tuesday, January 17, 2022.
Lalong, while explaining the meaning of ‘Emi Lokan’, said Tinubu helped a number of people both financially and career wise, hence it is his turn to receive back the favour.
He said: “Asiwaju Tinubu has done good. It is is turn. It is your turn. It is our turn. If you chop alone you will die alone. He did not chop alone. That it is his turn to chop. That is why ‘Emi Lokan’ is very important.
“I am standing in for our president who is the chairman of the campaign council. The President knew that this crowd will be here. He went for an assignment. There is no doubt we have seen it. We expect that this same crowd will be more than this after 25th of February.”
