The Deputy Chief Whip of the House of Representatives Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, has urged her supporters to mobilise for candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at both federal and state levels, including the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and others.
She gave the charge during a town hall meeting with APC stakeholders and women leaders of her constituency in Abia State.
This is as a member of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Uche Ezekwesili vowed to mobilise for the victory of the party’s flag bearer, Bola Tinubu and other candidates in Abuja North.
Onyejocha, who is representing Isuikwuato/Umunneochi federal constituency of Abia State, charged the stakeholders to put more efforts in mobilising party faithful to boost the chances of all candidates from federal to state level contesting on the platform of APC.
In a statement, the lawmaker said the emergence of the former Lagos State governor as the candidate of the APC was a miracle, noting that it should be a lesson for all to learn from.
She said: “God has already ordained who will become the next president of the country. It’s God’s decision to make and no man can change His will.”
Ezekwesili said: “We are here today because our House of Representatives member Hon Nkeiruka Onyejeocha has called to interact with the stakeholders to give account of her stewardship and then tell us the things that we should be expected and prepare for the forthcoming election to make sure we elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu as our president and other APC candidates across board in the 2023 general election.
“We are very prepared in our local government because APC as a party has given us what we will campaign with. If you look around you will see meaningful infrastructures, including roads, schools and so many things constructed by Onyejeocha. Other parties have done virtually nothing for us. We have things to campaign with.
“All the people gathered here have unanimously agreed that this woman has worked, her party has delivered, hence we have to return her and every other constants on the platform of the party because of what she has done for her constituency. We are prepared.”
