The Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the February 25th, 2023 general elections in the Country, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has called on the people of Akwa Ibom State to get their Permanent Voters Card, PVC ready for them to be able to vote for all the APC Candidates in the election in the State.

Tinubu stated the above while addressing his mammoth crowd of supporters on Monday in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State Capital.

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu used the opportunity to assure the Akwa Ibom people of his resolve to prioritize  employment opportunities for the vast majority of Nigerians who are willing and ready to work especially the people of Akwa-Ibom State.

Speaking at the Nest of Champion Stadium at Uyo before a massive crowd, Asiwaju Tinubu thanked the people of the state especially APC members who voted for him to emerge the candidate of the party in the February 25, 2023 presidential election, saying the power to become President resides with the people.

“The power to become President resides in you. Akwa-Ibom, you have welcomed me wholeheartedly. God will give you blessing. When I said ‘Emi lo kan’, God answered that prayer through you people. I got the ticket. Let me thank all of you for that ticket. I am grateful.”

The APC Presidential candidate, however, told the people of the state and supporters that they would not get full credit until they all voted and ensured victory in the general elections for all APC candidates in the National Assembly, Governorship, State Assembly and presidential elections. 

“No one gets credit for an incomplete assignment because the assignment is not complete until you vote. So, go and get your PVC. This is the revolution to change poverty to prosperity and  Joblessness to being employed”.

In his prepared speech, which he didn’t read, Tinubu pointed out that government’s highest purpose is to use the resources at its disposal for the benefit of the people in direct reference to Labour Party’s presidential candidate Peter Obi whose only vaunted credential is that he saved money while he was governor of Anambra State, adding that Obi watched his people suffer, while he continued to boast of saving money for the state, which has become his biggest campaign achievement.

He urged Nigerians to roundly reject Obi who saved money for the state, while refusing to save the people of Anambra State as Governor of the State.

Also, speaking about the Peoples Democratic Party Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, the APC flagbearer said Atiku’s only aim of wanting to be President is to be able to sell the nation’s assets to his friends.

He said, “My opponents will say that my vision for Nigeria is too big and too far away to attain. I say to them that their vision is too small and selfish. I want to take you to a better future where the government works even more on your behalf to improve your daily lives”.

“My opponents want to take you back in time to a point where you, the citizens, labor and toil so they can get richer by the day while you get nothing. I want to move you along the path of progressive governance that leads to a more prosperous economy as well as abiding security and peace for all.

“This election will decide whether you believe, you and the rest of the nation are entitled to the good things only progressive, compassionate and responsible governance can deliver or do you want to relinquish your future to Someone like Mr Privatize of the PDP or Peter the Stingy?, He asked.

“One man wants to sell all of Nigeria’s public assets and its future, so that only he and his tight club of conspirators can enjoy the meat of the land. While Mr. Stingy wants to do for the nation what he did to Anambra. He let the people suffer while he kept and hid their own money from them and their basic needs. He refused to save people so that he could save money”.

“I tell you that whatever government has it is not to keep from you, it is to be put to wise use for your benefit. This is the highest purpose of the government. Only this will usher in a greater tomorrow. Anything less will chain us to failure.”

Speaking on his plans for Akwa Ibom State, Tinubu promised that though an oil-rich state, he would help bring more resources to the state through diversification into agriculture and harnessing the tourism opportunities available in the state.

“This land is rich and fertile. The agricultural policies we have designed and the investments we have planned will ensure greater productivity and food supply as well as opening the door to increased exports to markets worldwide. We will provide the infrastructure to help rural communities, establish commodity boards to assure our farmers of a minimum price for strategic crops. This will guarantee the well-deserved income for farmers for the hard and valuable work they perform for the nation.

“Additionally, we will invest in agricultural infrastructure such as grain reserves, produce storage facilities in local markets, better farm-to-market roads and access. 

“My administration’s program to build agricultural hubs will increase arable farmland and encourage cooperative relationships between small and large farms that will boost production and promote agro-related business.

“We will also help bring industry and tourism to Akwa Ibom. This is a beautiful and welcoming place with kind and energetic people. Our industrial plan will encourage companies to locate here and manufacture goods for Nigeria as well as foreign markets. This will produce jobs and provide the foreign currency to help push our nation forward. Tourists will come and never want to leave this land of promise. This means more jobs, better income and skills for you,” he added.

He also promised to help protect their oil reserves from vandals so that the state will be able to get what it truly deserves from the large oil deposits it has, while also ensuring that the oil companies take care of and give back to their host communities to ensure development.

Speaking at the rally, the APC Governorship candidate in Akwa-Ibom, Akanimo Udofia dismissed those using religion to campaign. He revealed that Asiwaju built a Monastery for Catholic Church in Epe, Lagos State and he is a President that will serve Nigerians well regardless of their religion and ethnicity. 

Former Governor of Akwa-Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio charged the people of the state to vote for Asiwaju Tinubu and all APC candidates.

In attendance at the Uyo rally were top government officials, party leaders and members of the presidential campaign council. 

They included Senate President Dr. Ahmed Lawan, Speaker of House of Representatives Femi Gbajabiamila, Director-General of the campaign council and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, Cross Rivers State Governor Ben Ayade, APC Deputy National Chairman, South, Barrister Emma Enekwu, former Minister of Niger Delta and former Governor of the state, Godswill Akpabio, current Minister of Niger Delta, Umana Okon Umana, former Minister of Petroleum, Chief Don Etiebet, former EFCC Chairman Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, APC National Woman Leader Beta Edu, among many others
