Hon. Joseph Ikpea Salutes Senator Bola Tinubu Over Victory.
A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress APC, Edo State and Former Edo State Commissioner for Oil Gas and Solid Minerals, Hon. Joseph Ikpea has congratulated the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his landslide victory at the just concluded party’s special convention, held at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
Hon. Joseph Ikpea described the emergence of Senator Tinubu as a victory for democracy and a pointer to democratic sustenance in the country.
Senator Tinubu emerged as the flag-bearer of the ruling party on Wednesday with a total vote of 1271, defeating Rotimi Amaechi and Yemi Osinbajo, who got 316 and 235 votes respectively.
Recall that the ruling party had held its Presidential Primary on June 7th and 8th, 2022 where 23 aspirants including Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; former Imo and Rivers States’ Governors, Rocha Okorocha and Rotimi Amaechi among other aspirants contested.
Hon. Ikpea, in a statement, expressed confidence in the ability, competence and administrative acumen of Senator Tinubu to take the country to enviable heights ever known in history.
Ikpea noted that the emergence of Senator Tinubu in a hitch-free electoral process was a clear indication the country was on the verge of democratic rejuvenation.
According to him, the APC standard-bearer would in no doubt consolidate on the track records of President Muhammadu Buhari having been equipped with the required qualities of a good leader.
He said “Your emergence at the just concluded Presidential Primary of our great party is indeed a reward of your tireless efforts and selfless services to Nigeria and Nigerians and of course humanity.
“You are not just a leader of leaders but the finest politician who had used his God-given wisdom and wealth to build humanity and advance the socio-economic fortunes of our dear country.
“It is on record that your phenomenal leadership and enigmatic fortress had in no measure contributed significantly to the growth and development of Lagos State where you served as a two-term Governor and of course Nigeria as it is evident in your influence across the nooks and crannies.
“With your antecedents couple with your outstanding credentials in both private and public sectors, I have no doubt in my mind that your emergence will deliver victory for our party in all elections as this will further justify the quest to elect a candidate with unimaginable qualities that cut across spheres of life, “Ikpea said.
