A political pressure group in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Like Minds Initiative (LMI), has said it has activated campaigns in the 17 local government areas of Enugu State to deepen the Tinubu and APC messages in the communities across the state ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The coordinator of the LMI in Enugu State, Hon. Ezeh Tochukwu Vincent, who spoke with newsmen after the group’s meeting in Enugu, said that the move will ensure the emergence of Senator Bola Tinubu as president with victory for all APC candidates in the elections.
Ezeh urged the electorate to de- emphasise issues of ethnicity and religion and embrace the APC presidential candidate, Senator Tinubu, saying he has the capacity to change the nation’s narrative for good.
The group, which has been formally coopted as one of APC’s support groups is a registered body with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), with Headquarters in the nation’s capital, Abuja, and State Chapters across the country.
Ezeh said LMI remains a firm believer in good governance, and would continue to promote same in the country.
According to him, LMI, is also committee in promoting the societal change through attitudinal reorientation at all levels, adding that the group equally advocates and participate in the promotion of credible elections in Nigeria.
He explained the resolve by the group to support Tinubu’s candidacy and APC’s governorship candidate in Enugu State, Chief Uche Nnaji, is borne out of the fact that the duo have the capacity to deliver the goods if given the mandate.
He noted: “It is on record that the 2023 APC presidential flag bearer, Ahmed Bola Tinubu proved him self worthy when he was the Lagos State governor. He transformed the the entire state, uplifted it’s economy, to the effect that it became almost the largest in West African sub region.
“We are talking of a man who governed Lagos State for some years without the monthly statutory federal allocation, yet, he delivered real democracy dividends to the good people of Lagos state.
“Nigerian electorate can still recall vividly how the then PDP led federal government under Ex-president Olusengun Obasanjo’s watch bluntly refused releasing the Lagos state federal monthly allocation yet, the then sitting Governor, Ahmed Tinubu through the internally Generated Revenue (IGR) was able to provide adequate infrastructural amenities to the people.
“Without sounding sentimental, Tinubu, is a tested and trusted political leader, who has the capacity to transform the entire Nigeria, take the economy to the next level, and above all, he is a detrabilised Nigeria, with all the needed leadership experience.
Ezeh, a former APC Youth leader in Nkanu East Council area and Chieftain of the defunct All Nigeria’s people’s party (ANPP), said: “Our focus as a group is to support the APC presidential Candidate, the Enugu State Governorship flag bearer, Chief Nnaji, and every other standard bearers of the party at the national and state, levels. And so far, we are deepening the messages in rural communities in Enugu State.
He added: “in Enugu state, we are supporting the APC gubernatorial candidate, Chief Nnaji, a renowned industrialist, who has really impacted on the lives of our people, and has all it takes to wipe away their sufferings occasioned by the PDP bad leadership in the state.
Ezeh, who is also the South East Zonal Coordinator of LMI, said “God’s willing, and with the support of the Electorate, if voted into office, Chief Nnaji will change the leadership narrative in Enugu state, by showing PDP what good governance is all about.
