The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has boasted that the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Bola Tinubu, will get 98% of votes in Yobe State in the forthcoming presidential polls.
Lawan said this on Sunday in Damaturu at the inauguration of the Yobe State APC 2023 Campaign Council which was held at Yobe Government House.
Lawan described Yobe as the pride of APC and cannot afford to let the APC family down. He vowed that no stone would be left unturned to ensure the party gets all seats (votes) at the polls, at all levels.
He said, “Just as the chairman of the council said, we will be totally committed to ensuring that this party, the APC in Yobe State delivers all the seats by the Grace of God.
“We will work tirelessly, we will ensure that we leave no stone unturned, we will do whatever it takes because APC in Yobe State is the pride of APC in Nigeria and we cannot afford to let APC family in Nigeria down.
“Actually, we believe that we are supposed to dominate in the presidential poll when it comes to performance. We should be able to have the highest percentage, like we did before, nothing less than 98 percent to vote for our presidential candidate.
“And we can do that by mercilessly committing ourselves to our party rather than regional thinking or sentiments. In Yobe State, you know we have a single family and our Governor by the Grace of God should have the highest number of votes for any Governor in Nigeria.
“This we will do by making sure that our zones, the three zones in the state compete. So I want to assure you that we do everything possible within the law to ensure that our Governor comes back to office in flying colour. Our National Assembly and State Assembly members should be waiting for inauguration Insha Allah.
“In the North East zone, we have a vice presidential candidate in the neighbouring State, our sister State, Borno. Let’s beat Borno State in the Presidential election.
“Borno and Yobe are the same people. They have given us every possible support before and one good turn deserves another. It is for us to also do the same for them.“
