Election: Congratulate President-elect Tinubu, Adighije urges Obi



A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Chris Adighije, has called on the Presidential Candidate of Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, to concede defeat and congratulate the nation’s president-elect, Sen. Bola Tinubu.


Adighije, who is also the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman, Governing Council, Federal University, Lokoja, Kogi State, gave the advice in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday.


He said that Obi should show sportsmanship by calling the declared winner of the election and congratulate him.

According to him, what Obi needs now to endear himself more in the hearts of the people of Nigeria is that act that would not snowball into destruction of lives and property.

Adighije, who is also the Chairman of the APC stakeholders in Abia, said the LP presidential candidate should think about his region, the South East, and Nigeria in taking any decision.

He expressed concern that Obi’s action would go along way to determine where the South East would be in the political equation of Nigeria.

He commended Obi for positioning the Igbos strongly in the political discuss in the country, saying “l want to congratulate the leader of my party, the President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. l also will use this opportunity to congratulate Mr. Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, for his forthrightness and resilience in the election.

“I will appeal that he congratulates the winner of the Presidential poll as l believe sincerely that such a good gesture would endear him more to the hearts of the Obidient Movement and Nigeria at large.

“He should know that any decision that he takes in this circumstance has a high propensity to affect Nigerians, especially the South Easterners positively or negatively,” he said.

I’ll Turn Ondo Into Another Lagos, Says Wale Akinterinwa Ahead Of APC Primaries



Wale Akinterinwa, a governorship hopeful on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC), says he will turn Ondo into another Lagos, the country’s commercial capital, if elected governor.


The Ondo APC governorship primary election is scheduled for April 20 while the state-wide election will be held on November 16.


Speaking during his official declaration at the ruling party’s secretariat in Akure, the state capital, on Tuesday, Akinterinwa said he will make Ondo an industrialised state.

The governorship hopeful who had worked in Lagos civil service, said he would utilise the natural resources in the state to attract investments.

“We will turn Ondo into another Lagos state in terms of development because we have what it takes, in terms of coast. We must ensure that the port comes alive and that will be a game changer,” Akinterinwa said.

“But, beyond that, we also have the landmass and ought to be an agrarian state. So, we are going to take agriculture to the next level while we encourage and support the local farmers.

“We will also attract investors who will invest in agriculture so that we will be exporting finished products. We will not just be producing for the table but we will be producing for export.”

On security, Akinterinwa said his economic initiatives would get most youth employed and lead to reduction in the rate of insecurity in the state.

“For security, part of our challenges today is because today is because we have many unemployed youths. So, Amotekun founded by our late governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and other South West governors will be strengthened so that with appropriate security in place, we can have development,” he said.
