Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi has assured that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu would take care of Igbos as President Muhammadu Buhari has done.
Umahi pointed out that Igbos have a lot to benefit from Tinubu if he wins the presidential election next month.
He spoke at the APC local government campaign rallies in Iboko, the headquarters of Izzi Local Government Area.
Umahi recalled that Tinubu took care of Igbos while he was the Governor of Lagos State.
According to Umahi, Igbos would not be guided by sentiments in deciding who to vote for in 2023.
He said: ‘We are standing with Tinubu and Shettima. They will take care of Ebonyi State the way Buhari took care of Ebonyi State. The way Buhari has been taking care of us that is the way Jagaban is going to take care of the Ndigbo.
‘Jagaban was the governor of Lagos State and under him, Ndigbo in Lagos prospered and they are still prospering.
‘This speaker has been with me for 16 years from when I was party chairman to when I was made deputy governor and then governor.’
Tinubu had earlier sent a warning to Nigerians never to be deceived into voting for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), stressing that a vote for PDP would be an error that would be hard to correct.
Speaking in Ilorin, Kwara State, several facts have pointed to the fact that the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar is only interested in the presidential race to enrich himself and his friends.
He stated that just like he did in the past, if given the opportunity again, Atiku would only sell Nigeria to his “shady friends” in the name of privatisation.
