Northwest All Progressive Congress (APC) Youth Leader Abdulhamid Umar Mohammad has urged Nigeria’s Igbo people to vote for the ruling party’s presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in 2023, saying that Tinubu will outperform other presidential candidates. He also claimed the APC Presidential hopeful has done much for the Igbo people.
“Tinubu has done more good for the Igbos than any other presidential candidates and, it is time for them to pay back by voting massively for him in the upcoming general election,” Mohammed stated.

According to him, “Tinubu is a detribalized leader because when Igbos left southeast in droves, they were welcomed into Lagos by Asiwaju who was the state government that also gave them an avenue to flourish in their businesses.”
“Unlike in the Southeast where traders are forced to sit at home by hoodlums, the blueprint laid by Tinubu made Lagos a conducive atmosphere for the Igbos to conduct their businesses without any hindrance.”
“Asiwaju ran an inclusive government and was among the pioneer governors who started appointing non-indigenes as state executives. Numerous Igbo have benefited from such administrative initiatives.”
“He appointed an Igbo man from Anambra State, Ben Akabueze, Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget for eight years, 1999-2007.”
“Both Yoruba, Igbo, and other non-Lagosians residing in Lagos state all benefited from his free education. He gave your children free education in Lagos. History will also not forget that Asiwaju as the then Lagos governor, set up a superb business environment for the Igbo to strive in Lagos. As it stands, Lagos remains one of the most conducive places to run the business as there was never a time when hoodlums enforced sit-at-home on traders as is currently observed in the Southeast,” he continued.
The northwest APC youth leaders urged the Igbo people to make no mistake and elect the opposition to power in 2023.
