2023 elections: Southeasterners are prepared to vote for APC massively, says Obidike
The southeast region is believed to be the stronghold of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
However, Obidike assured the preparedness of the people of the Igbo-dominated region to vote massively for the ruling APC in the 2023 general elections.
"The people of southeast are beneficiaries of President Buhari’s leadership goodwill, and thus are ready to support any candidate that will emerge for the nation’s topmost office," he said.
Southeast didn't benefit from PDP, Obidike says
Obidike noted that despite supporting the PDP over the years, the southeast didn’t get any tangible project from the main opposition party.
He added that the region's people have discovered the importance of supporting the APC after "several betrayals by the drowning opposition party."
"After President Buhari’s visit to Ebonyi, the hope was rekindled, and the Southeast stakeholders saw the need to collectively support the APC-led government," Obidike said.
Tinubu to APC women: Tell those seeking change of government to shut up
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Tinubu said APC women should tell Nigerians calling for a change of government in the forthcoming 2023 elections to “shut up.”
Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state, made the comment on Monday, October 10, while speaking at the launch of the women’s team of the ruling party's presidential campaign.
He said Nigerians seeking a change of government have forgotten the situation of the country before President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office, adding that he will put an end to banditry if elected president in 2023.
