You Must Deliver To Me 95% Votes, Forget Atiku, Peter Obi – Tinubu Tells Ekiti Residents


#NigeriaDecides2023: Tinubu Floors Atiku, Peter Obi In 10 Ekiti LGAs
APC Presidential Candidate, Bola Tinubu

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, on Sunday demanded 95 per cent votes from Ekiti State residents as he woo the residents ahead of the February 2023 elections.

Naija News reports that the former Governor of Lagos State was in the state today as a guest of honour at the swearing-in ceremony of the State Governor, Abiodun Oyebanji.

Delivering a speech at the occasion, Tinubu urged the residents to forget about his counterparts from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi and delivered their votes to him in the forthcoming election.

Tinubu assured the citizens of a better tomorrow, stating that if elected, his administration will take care of the people of the state including their children.

The APC chieftain charged the crowd gathered at the swearing-in to turn a blind eye to both Atiku and Obi as people they did not know.

“Another election is coming in February. They are coming. One will call himself Atiku, another will call himself Peter Obi. You don’t know them. The only person you know is Bola Ahmed Tinubu and you must deliver to me 95 per cent of the votes,” Daily Post quoted the APC candidate as saying.

“Don’t be far away, the people that will give you a promise and keep the promise are here. We will take care of you and your children. We will give you a great future. We promise you a better Nigeria. Maybe God Almighty continue to bless us all,” Tinubu added.

Keyamo Knocks Atiku For Telling Northerners Not To Support Any Yoruba Or Igbo Candidate

The spokesman of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo on Sunday, berated the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, over his statement at a political event.

Naija News reports that Atiku, during an Interactive Session with Arewa Joint Committee held on Saturday in Kaduna State, said Northerners need to vote for him because he is a Pan-Nigerian with a northern extraction that has built bridges across the country.

The former Vice President said Northerners do not need any Yoruba or Igbo candidate as president of the country.

He had said: “What the average Northerner needs is somebody who’s from the north and also understands that part of the country and has been able to build bridges across the country.

“This is what the Northerner needs, it doesn’t need a Yoruba or Igbo candidate, I stand before you as a Pan-Nigerian of northern origin.”

Reacting to the statement in a Twitter post, Keyamo said the comment is the height of desperation and daredevilry on the part of the PDP presidential flag bearer.

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment said it is horrendous, horrible, and thoughtless for the former vice president to use ethnicity in the campaign.
