Seyi Tinubu, son of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has given reasons why the Ndigbo community should vote for his father.
Seyi spoke after he bagged a chieftaincy title of “Nwannedinamba” in Anambra State on Tuesday. The title means brother in the diaspora.
He said Tinubu deserves the votes of the South East because he (Seyi) married an Igbo lady, which makes him a part of them.
He also visited the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Press Centre in Awka where he addressed newsmen on his father’s aspiration.
Speaking to journalists in Awka, Seyi said he was in Anambra to galvanise support for the presidential aspiration of his father.
He said: “Bola Ahmed Tinubu has the experience, tolerance and capacity to change the fortunes of Nigeria for the best.
“Everyone has acknowledged that his core strength is his vision for peace, progress and economic development.
“He also has a penchant for discovering, nurturing and empowering talent. Testimonies abound across Nigeria, Igbos, Yorubas, Fulanis, Efiks, Ibibios, Hausas and all the other tribes.”
Seyi Tinubu was accompanied on the trip by Uzuegbunam Okagbue, a former Chief of Protocol and Deputy Chief of Staff to former Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State.
