CITIZENS COMPASS– THE Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, on Thursday promised the people of Bayelsa State of good drainage system if elected in 2023 general elections.
The candidate promised to build primary and secondary drainage canals that would protect Yenagoa, the capital of Bayelsa State from flood if he is voted into office as president of Nigeria.
Tinubu stated this in Yenagoa during the Bayelsa State APC Presidential Campaign Council rally at the Ox-Bow Lake Pavilion, Swali, Yenagoa.
He said if elected, he would proffer permanent solutions to issues of flooding across Bayelsa.
“Today, I bring great news to Bayelsa, and that news is that hope and salvation is here, prosperity is here, that employment is back, that happiness is here, that high prices of good are gone. No matter how much they try to frustrate this news, we will bring it to you.
“Where we are is Bayelsa, one of the most blessed with mineral resources in this country. The wealth that would have prevented you from dying in flood. But the poverty developing party could not help you. They collect your money and tell you lies. They lie to you too much.
“It is about time you sweep them away because they keep making promises to you and cannot fulfil them. Where is the road Initiated by Yakubu Gowan? Where is the East-West road? Where is the opportunity for broadband? Where is their head? Where are their brains?
Among the suppoters was former governor of Bayelsa state and Minister of State for Petroleum, Chief Timipre Sylva who described Tinubu as the best among arrays of candidates jostling to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
