Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, has warned the South-East not to disregard Hope Uzodinma, the governor of Imo State.
“South-East corporate and political leaders should ignore Hope Uzodimma at their own peril,” said Tinubu.
At a town hall meeting with the South-East private sector on Thursday in Owerri, he gave the warning, according to NAN.
If elected president, Tinubu promised the area he will represent their interests.
The APC candidate asked Nigerians to vote for advancement, to participate in the country’s bright future, and to never allow those who have regressed the nation to return.
He said: ”I am coming to serve the people and not to be their boss. I brought progressive governance and forward-looking government and not the type that will take Nigerians backwards.”
He vowed to create an enabling environment for businesses to thrive if elected president.
“We will develop a code that when activated, will make their goods and services easy on the roads of Nigeria,” he said.
