The All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has called on the people of Bayelsa State to vote for him in the 2023 general elections, saying he knows the way to the prosperity of the country.
Tinubu spoke on Thursday at the APC presidential rally held at the Ox-Bow Lake Pavilion, Yenagoa, amidst tight security and torrential rainfall, with about five gunboats patrolling the Ekoli River in front of the facility.
The rally was preceded by a visit to the Bayelsa State Traditional Rulers Council, headed by the monarch of Ekpetiama Kingdom, King Bubaraye Dakolo.
The APC standard bearer, while addressing a crowd of supporters, said, “Follow me; I know the way to prosperity. Follow me, I will take you there. Vote for me; I will make your life better. Go to Lagos and see what we have made of it.
“Today, I bring you news and renewed hope. Your salvation is here. Prosperity is here. We will create thousands of jobs. Bayelsa is one of the most industrious states, blessed with mineral resources. I will make Bayelsa a technical hub and create expert jobs.”
The Director-General of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Simon Lalong, said, “We are going to win everywhere in the South-South.
“No more technicalities of the Supreme Court. Asiwaju is going to win; he is your own.”
In their separate remarks, a former national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, said that Tinubu had the capacity, commitment, and trust to govern Nigeria.
