President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday led the flag-off of the campaigns of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Dr Tony Nwoye in Onitsha.
Buhari, represented by Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo, told a huge crowd that gathered at the All Saints Cathedral field that he had so much love for the state.
He enjoined the people of the state to ensure the party’s candidate, Nwoye who he described as the best, was elected on November 18.
Osinbajo said, “Buhari loves Anambra State. This is one state that is dear to him. When he ran for president the first time, he chose one of your sons, Chuba Okadigbo as his running mate, when he ran the second time, he chose your son too; Edwin Umezuoke as his running mate. It is because of this love that the president himself went to negotiate for the second Niger Bridge, and that is why that bridge is in the budget today.
“Anambra was among the first state to benefit from our home grown school feeding programme. We will not make any promise that we will not fulfill. If you make the right choice, you get the right result. That is why we are giving you Tony Nwoye,” Osinbajo said.
