The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has warned the Ndi Igbos that until they deliver her the presidency, they will not get the support they desperately need.

He said this during his campaign rally on Wednesday, January 11, at the Michael Okpara Square, Enugu ahead of the general election in February.

Tinubu said, “Nobody will give all of you any credit. You are working hard and you are sweating now. We want you to sweat well for this party. Until you deliver victory, until Bola Tinubu becomes the president of the federal republic of Nigeria, we will not give you but a slight clap or a soaked slice of bread."

His comment has sparked concern among some Nigerians who took to social media to share their thoughts.

Netizens queried the southeastern governors who stood with Tinubu on the podium as he warns them of his plan not to support them if they fail to deliver him victory.
