2023: Tinubu’s victory over LP, APGA in Anambra, Southeast done deal – APC chieftain

…says Tinubu has all it takes to win Anambra and Southeast in the presidential election

A chieftain of All Progressive Congress (APC), Dozie Ikedife (jnr) on Monday said the party’s presidential candidate, Ahmed Bola Tinubu has all it takes to win Anambra and Southeast in the forthcoming presidential election.

He said Tinubu would win more votes both in the state and region than Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), and Peter Umeadi of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

Addressing reporters in Nnewi, Anambra state, Ikedife, Southeast zonal Organizing Secretary of the party, said APC has both national spread and acceptance and has been able to deliver good governance to Nigerians over the years.

He said, “We appreciate the fact that APGA is domicile in Anambra state. We also acknowledge that the OBIdient Movement is powerful in Anambra and Southeast; but as far as the February 25thpresidential election is concerned, APC will change the narrative. 

“Obviously, APC is very strong in Anambra with formidable structures. APC has two ministers from Anambra state. Chris Ngige is the Hon. Minister of Labour and Employment; and Sharon Ikeazor is the Hon. Minister of State for Environment. 

“We also have Ben Akabueze as Director in the Budget Office; Margery Okadigbo as the Chairman of NNPC Board; as well as George Moghalu as the Executive Chairman of NIWA. All of them are sons and daughters of the state, and their positions will play very important roles in delivering results for APC in the coming elections.”

Reacting to age factor limitations for Tinubu’s aspiration, the APC stalwart argued that presidency is not all about age but being able to understand superior argument and logic.

He said, “Presidency is about delegating duties to the right people, and putting the right people to the right tasks. Tinubu is a master in identifying talents, and giving talents the right opportunity to work for the greater goals.

“Presidency is not about weight lifting. It is about sitting down, talking with your team, and delegating assignments. I believe that with the kind of experience that Tinubu has, he has the capacity to lift the economy of Nigeria, and place it in the right part of development.

“Tinubu has the best manifesto. In all his undertakings, he has shown consistency. The mind-bugling developmental milestones in Lagos today are ideas ventilated by Tinubu. Tinubu is a master of good governance, and I have no doubt in my mind that he will replicate same if elected president.”

Ikedife further described as unnecesary argument that Southeast should be allowed to produce Nigerian president of Igbo extraction, stressing that what is important is the provision of good governance.

“Those plying the second Niger bridge don’t care if those who built it are from Southeast or not. What should be important to us is the person that provides good governance, and able to deliver results,” he added.
