Senator Oluremi Tinubu who is the wife of President Bola Tinubu has called on Imo women to vote massively for Governor Hope Uzodinma, in the 11th of November, 2023 governorship election.
Tinubu spoke at a campaign rally organised by women which held at the Rear Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu Square New Owerri and had virtually all the All Progressives Congress (APC) governors’ wives, plus that of the Senate President of Nigeria as well as Chief of Staff to the President, in attendance.
In her address, Tinubu appealed to the women mobilised from 27 local councils of the state not to misuse their ballot, but to use it to ensure that the development of the South-east begins in Imo State in line with the promise of the president that the zone will be the industrial hub of Nigeria.
‘The move to re-elect Senator Hope Uzodinma is ordained by God. The re-election will bring about renewed hope and sustenance on the already giant strides of the governor.’
‘The South-east will be the industrial hub of Nigeria as promised by my husband, the president, during his campaign and by the grace of God it will come to be.
‘By the grace of God, I will start my foundation’s agricultural programme with Imo State,’ she said.
Expressing appreciation to the women for their overwhelming support, especially those who came from other states of the federation, Uzodimma in his remarks lauded Tinubu and his wife for their show of love and commitment to his administration and promised not to take the privilege for granted.
He also assured the president of his support at all times and his readiness to work hard to justify the confidence that has been reposed in him.
In her welcome address, the host First Lady and wife of the governor, Chioma, informed her guests that her husband has fulfilled his campaign promises to Imo people in all critical sectors of the economy and even more, and so was deserving of their votes on 11th of November, 2023.
