Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu

The stalwart of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Ben Nwoye believes Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the party will garner enough votes from the southeast.

The immediate chairman of the party in Enugu made the comment at the unveiling of a campaign building for the Tinubu-Shettima Independent Campaign Group in Enugu.

He reiterated that the Buhari-led administration has achieved a lot inspite of the insecurity challenges that have plagued the country.

He said Tinubu should be allowed to sustain the good works Buhari would leave behind.

He recounted the many landmark achievements the Buhari administration had recorded to include the paying of minimum wage of N30,000, as well as increasing the allowances of the members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

Nwoye further noted that the presidency, under the APC, embarked on tremendous infrastructural development in the country, especially in the South-East.

“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,” he stated.

He 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 stated.
