Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday urged the people of Imo State to vote for the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in the forthcoming general elections.
In a press release signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, Sanwo-Olu urged all Ndigbo, particularly the people of Imo State to bring about renewed hope by coming out en masse to vote for Tinubu in next week’s presidential election, as well as all the APC candidates.
The Eagle reported that Sanwo-Olu said this at the APC presidential campaign rally in Owerri on Tuesday, which was attended by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (Ret’d.); APC National Chairman, Senator Adamu Abdullahi; Deputy Director-General of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Comrade Adams Oshimhole and Governors Hope Uzodinma of Imo state, Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state and other APC chieftains.
He said, “I bring you greetings from the Centre of Excellence to the state of great hope to show that there is a handshake across the Niger, where all your people are. They want me to come here to tell you that even the Ndigbo in Lagos are with Asiwaju.
“So, we have come here to show you that we are the same. That is why I have come down here to show solidarity with the great hope in Imo State and the hope that is renewed for Nigeria under the able leadership of our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“We want to thank you Mr. President, for keeping to your word that you will join us on the campaign train in all of the regional states in the country. We want to thank you sir for coming down here to show everyone that indeed you are a President for all.
“We want to thank you for the great Igbo community and I bring you greetings from all of us in Lagos that we stand with you across the Niger. We stand with you believing that the renewed hope is here and the great hope of Imo is also here.
“Let us go out next week Saturday and do the right thing; do the rightful thing and bring about a renewed hope under the hope of Imo into the Presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. God bless you all.”
