National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has appealed to the Igbo community in Lagos to vote for the party in the rescheduled February 23 and March 9 general elections.
Tinubu, who is the Chairman of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, made the appeal while addressing party stakeholders in the state capital, Ikeja on Wednesday.
He urged Igbos to vote for the party because it had always provided equal opportunity to everyone in the state irrespective of state of origin.
The former Lagos governor said that the state government had continued to create an enabling environment for Igbo businesses to thrive in the state.
Tinubu assured Ndigbo in the state that the APC-led government would continue to pursue a policy of non-discrimination in the delivery of democratic dividends to residents of the state.
“We appeal to our Igbo brothers from the east, this is the state where you conduct your businesses, your children are in our schools, we don’t discriminate against them in our WAEC fees.
“We don’t discriminate against them for NECO fees. We don’t discriminate against them for JAMB fees. Even in our universities, they take the benefit of our tuition and allowances and all that.
“Now this time, we say, help us, we say vote for us and our candidates,” Tinubu said.
