All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu has described Nigeria as a blessed country whose citizens need not run to foreign countries in search of greener pastures.
Tinubu, who made the statement in Enugu on Wednesday at his presidential rally, said there was no country like Nigeria in all of Africa and as such it should be supported to rebuild Nigeria.
He said that people who go abroad face hardship and suffering and urged Nigerians to help make Nigeria great.
“Those who run abroad are suffer–suffer. we’ve been there. Anyone who tells you you can’t do something, pray that you can do it,” she said.
According to the APC presidential standard-bearer, Lagos as a state was better than most countries in the Western world, adding that if Ndigbo were to collaborate with his hoped-for government, he would turn the area into an industrial hub where things are made.
“Enugu will become a bigger industrial center than it is now.”
He described his campaign organization as a moving train that is poised to win the election, saying any attempt to stand in front of the moving train would end in fiasco.
“You cannot block the path of success. Only the ignorant will remain on the path of victory.
“We are not looking for 25 percent. We are working assiduously until Bola Ahmed Tinubu becomes president of Nigeria,” he said.
Tinubu urged the citizens of Enugu to vote for him to participate in the sharing of the national cake.
“Only when you invest can you reap. Only when they vote for me will they share from the national cake, ”she declares.
Speaking on the occasion, Uche Nnaji, the Enugu APC gubernatorial candidate; Hope Uzodimma from Imo State and Umahi from Ebonyi State differed on the percentage of votes Tinubu would get in the southeast.
While Nnaji went for 30 percent, Uzodimma said he expected to win in a landslide, while Umahi went for 90 percent.
“We have to vote for APC in order not to lose. We are not looking for 60 percent or 80 percent, but the percentage,” said Umahi.
However, it was clear from the turnout at the event that the crisis rocking APC in Enugu state is not yet over because party bigwigs in the state prevented the demonstration.
They were former Senate President Ken Nnamani, former Governor Sullivan Chime, Senator Ayogu Eze, as well as former Enugu State House of Assembly Speaker Hon. Eugenio Odo.
