Bola Tinubu, the APC candidate in the February 25 presidential election, has told Igbos in Enugu that when they vote for him, he will allow them to have a share in the “national cake,” a euphemism for the national coffer.
Mr Tinubu urged Enugu residents and Igbos, in general, to vote for him so that they would partake in sharing the national cake.
“It is only when you invest that you can harvest. It is only when you vote for me that you will share from the national cake,” the APC presidential flag bearer declared.
Speaking particularly about Enugu, Mr Tinubu said he would make Enugu an industrial hub greater than it is today.
He described his campaign organisation as a moving train prepared to win the election, saying that any attempt to stand before the moving train would end in a fiasco.
“You cannot block the way of success. It is only the ignorant that will stand in the way of victory. We are not looking for 25 per cent votes. We are working assiduously until Bola Ahmed Tinubu becomes the president of Nigeria,” he stressed.
Uche Nnaji, APC’s governorship candidate in Enugu, Governors Hope Uzodimma and Governor Umahi also addressed the rally simultaneously.
They differed on the percentage of votes that Mr Tinubu would poll in the South-East, however.
While Nnaji opted for 30 per cent of the votes, Mr Uzodimma said he expected a landslide, while Mr Umahi opted for 90 per cent of votes from the geopolitical zone.
“We have to vote for APC so that we will not lose. We are not looking at 60 per cent or 80 per cent, but 100 per cent of the votes,” Mr Umahi said.
