Regardless of the cashless policy, Borno will vote for Tinubu – APC Chieftain

Murtala Ajaka, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, has expressed confidence that despite the untold hardship caused by the Central Bank of Nigeria’s naira redesign policy, the people of Borno State and the North-East will vote overwhelmingly for the presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, at the polls.

Ajaka stated that the success recorded at Tinubu’s campaign rally, where supporters flocked to greet him, was proof of his conviction.

His optimism arises just one week before the presidential election on February 25.

Tinubu is expected to face Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, Peter Obi of the Labour Party, Dr Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, Omoyele Sowore of the African Action Congress, and 13 other political contenders.

However, the APC deputy national spokesman believes that none of the opposition’s leading candidates can compete with the former Lagos State governor.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Saturday evening, Ajaka declared that the ruling party would shock Atiku even in his home region of the North-East.

According to him, not even the harsh cashless policy will deter the people of Borno and the entire North-East from voting for the APC next Saturday.

“The Borno outing sends a clear message to the PDP and its presidential candidate that a surprise awaits them in the North-East,” he said. Borno people have spoken loudly and clearly that they support the APC and that nothing, not even the ongoing stinging cashless policy, will prevent them from voting Tinubu and their son, Senator Kashim Shettima, next Saturday.

“I honestly commend the government, the APC leadership and the people of Borno for this show of massive support. I will advise them not to give up or tire until the main goal is met next Saturday.”
