Formal Launch Of APC Campaign Office In Enugu State
REMARKS BY HIS EXCELLENCY, PROF. YEMI OSINBAJO, VICE PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA, AT THE FORMAL LAUNCH OF APC CAMPAIGN OFFICE IN ENUGU STATE, NOVEMBER 23, 2018
The President is committed to the development of the South East, that is why the East West road, the second Niger bridge, Port-Harcourt Enugu road all of these roads.
There were people who said that they were committed to the South East, they awarded contracts and nothing was ever done, but today we can see that the work is being done and the money has been put in the right place, the difference between our government and any other government no matter what anybody says, is that they will not steal the resources of the state. We will make sure that the money goes to the right place and that projects are done and are completed.
If you look at the second Niger bridge, you will see that the work has been going on, that is one of the foremost bridges in Africa, the foundation alone is like a 12 storied building and that is the work that is being done there today.
Mr. President has put resources behind it and we will see that it will be done. There is no project that will concern the South East zone that we will not make sure is done and done properly well.
If you look at it, l have been to this state several times; the last time l was here was for the MSME Clinics. I have been to Aba, which we know in terms of industry, especially manufacturing. The prime place is the South East in Nigeria including this place, which is the traditional headquarters of the South East zone and one of the major headquarters of our nation.
There is no question at all that there is no favour that anybody can do to the South East by virtue of the hard work of the people, it is the right of this state, it is your right to be leaders, your right to have good governance and your right to federal presence and federal bodies and that is what we are bringing with the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.
With his leadership, you can be sure that you will be fairly treated and that you will get your just dues. Everything that he has promised, he will make sure that they are done so I am so excited today that we have a kind of leadership that we have in the APC.
If you look at the very distinguished GSM Governor, Senator, Minister the great chief Jim Nwobodo to Senator Ayoogu Eze and the whole of the various leaders that we have here, there is no question that Enugu State is in safe hands and come 2019, victory will surely be ours by the grace of the Almighty God.
So l want to thank you all very much for the great support you have continued to show and that support will continue to increase day by day so that we will surely attain that victory.
