Why I’ll work with Soludo if elected President – Tinubu 

The Presidential Candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on Tuesday promised to work with the Governor of the state, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo if he becomes President of the country.

He also promised to check erosion menace in Anambra State same way he handled that of Atlantic ocean in Lagos State.

Addressing a mammoth crowd at Dr Alex Ekwueme square in Awka during the continuation of his campaign said he was not like the one they called Peter in the Bible that denied Christ three times before the cock crowed three times. 

The former Lagos State Governor further assured youths of the state of job opportunities and convert the state to one of the nation’s economic centers.

Tinubu said,  “We want to make Anambra a memorable productive state in memory of our own friend, Chuba Okadigbo and our Governor General, Sen. Hope Uzodimma, (Onwa Imo).

“I’m here today to publicize the promise of development we made, the exploration and industrialization Anambra is known for.

” You know me, the Lagos boy, I tamed Atlantic ocean; the same way we will check erosion in Anambra.

“We’ll make value of your property one thousand times your investment. We’ll create jobs for our youth, industrialize and make the state one of the economic centers. 

“We’re not like other parties. When they bring their lies again, ask them how long it will take their lies to travel from Portharcourt to Onitsha, to Aba.

” For 16 years, PDP lied, sharing our assets among themselves in the name of privatization.

“The city boy is here, joy, happiness, prosperity, good employment are here. Just make sure your PVC is intact. With me in Lagos, I didn’t discriminate. Your PVC is your mandate. 

“When Atiku said he is the only Candidate from the north. Is that not a division among us. When I started paying WAEC for students, I didn’t discriminate, I paid for everybody, whether Christian or Muslim.

While asking the people of the state to vote for him same way they overwhelmingly voted for Soludo, Tinubu promised not to disappoint them.

“I brought your son, and made him my friend. I didn’t say he’s not a Muslim. Instead he became the economic adviser to Buhari.

” He’s Charles Soludo, I salute his vision, he’s a brilliant man, he a thinker, he knows the way, we’ll work together, inclusively.

“When I’ll become the president. The way you voted for Soludo is the way you’ll vote for me. The man who led here, that call himself Peter Obi, just like the biblical Peter, who denied Jesus before the cock crew three times, will deny all the promises he made you,” he added.
