Former LP Deputy Gov’ship candidate canvasses support for Tinubu

A former gubernatorial aspirant of the Labour Party, LP, in Enugu state, Dr. Davison Nnamani, has said that President Bola Tinubu, is capable of resolving the multiplicity of Nigeria problems such as in insecurity, economic challenges and other socio-political problems, presently confronting the country.

Nnamani said that the APC has now positioned itself to take over Enugu state with the influx of grassroots politicians and statesmen that have declared interest in joining the APC in the state, and some of them who left the party but have now come back to rejig the national ruling political party.

He said that they have congregated to support President Tinubu with their wealth of public and private sector experiences, noting that the president is rejuvenating the third tier of government with the bill he recently presented to the National Assembly for Local government autonomy.

Nnamani made the remarks during his reception at Ikem ward 1 in Isi-Uzo local government area of Enugu state, when he returned to the APC and re registered in his ward as a member of the political party, on Saturday.

Among those who received him included the APC Ikem ward                1 chairman, Mr. Chinedu Obule; the Isi-Uzo local government party chairman, Hon. Paul Olinya and his executive; former Enugu East Senatorial candidate of the APC, Chief Tony Mbah and numerous other members of the APC in Isi-Uzo local government area.

Speaking during the reception, Nnamani said: “We want to join Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu to build a progressive Nigeria; we are in a Nigeria where insecurity, food shortage and a lot of other problems are confronting the country. He inherited problems that are enormous but he has the capacity to solve these problems and we as the people in the grassroots, we have to give him all the necessary support.

“One thing I noticed about APC in Enugu state is that most of the programmes of the APC that comes to the state are directed to other political parties and that makes the party not to grow but we’re going to make a change. For instance, between 2011 and 2019, we had somebody in the federal character commission, Dr. Martin Okeh, he employed 2000 people from Enugu state, but I doubt if anybody from Isi-Uzo local government benefited from that programme.

“Today, we have somebody again in that commission, we should encourage the person, work with the person to help us employ people because there are ministries and departments that employ graduates and there are programmes in the federal government that we are supposed to benefit from. We will try as much as possible to make these things happen.

“One of the good things about the APC is that it controls the federal government and if you remember the 1983 election, Alex Ekwueme was the vice president while Shehu Shagari was the President and it was necessary to make the then old Anambra state an NPN state. NPN fought so hard and worked so hard and made the party an NPN state so that if they throw something from Abuja, it will come to this place. So what I’m saying is that we are not in a wrong place, APC will by God’s grace take over Enugu state. We will take over Enugu state and we will work towards the progress and development of the country.

“Another aspect of the Tinubu administration is local government autonomy, you know that the local government is autonomous and development will come to the grassroots and it will make progress for everybody. So we’ll plead with the president, as long as he has presented a bill to the National Assembly, the state assemblies and the Governors of the 36 states of the federation will make this happen.

“So, I say thank you for accepting me back, nothing would have happened if I said I want to come back and you said no, you don’t want to accept me. Therefore having accepted me back, I say thank you and I will work to the best of my knowledge to develop the party from the grassroots and for us to be the best. I can assure you that Jagaban is not somebody to toy with. He has the capacity to be president and he has the capacity to sustain the presidency and anybody who wants to dare him has a man to match.”
