Kinsmen of presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi in Ondo State have assured that the ruling All Progressives Congress would win the 2023 presidential election.
The Igbos and other non-indigenes in the State said they opted to vote for All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu because they believe he would bring good things to the country.
They spoke at the inauguration of the state executives of the Emilokan Strikers, a grassroot support group for Tinubu presidency.
Coordinator, Non-Indigenes Ondo South Senatorial zone, Hon Nwamara Euchay, said Obi would eventually step down for Tinubu.
Hon Euchay said they would go take the APC campaigns to rural communities and houses of all the non-indigenes living in Ondo State.
According to her, “The APC is a progressive party. No matter the circumstances. We are going to win. Peter Obi is our son. We do not reject anybody. We will call people together and appeal to them. We believe Tinubu will bring good things to the country.
“Obi will step down for us. We are going to go out to talk about Tinubu. We will preach to them and calm them down to join the queue.”
State Coordinator of Emilokan Strikers, Mr. Festus Alonge, said the philosophy of Awosim would come to reality under Tinubu presidency.
Alonge stated that non-Indigenes in the state would be reached in their houses to woo them to vote for Tinubu.
His words, “Politics is about numbers and mobilisation. We are people of like mind and same vision. We are working assiduously which was why we formed this group. Every support group must be in the field to ensure victory.
“If you see the way we organised the structure, we created an office.for the Non-Indigenes so that we will be able to reach them. We have each person coordinating in each of the three senatorial district. They are working in conjunction with those already appointed.”
