“Ahmed Bola Tinubu is the MOST successful Governor in modern Nigeria” – PDP Chimaroke Nnamani launch online BAT Campaign

Chimaroke Nnamani, former governor of Enugu state and Peoples Democratic Party chieftain and serving Senator, has described Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the most successful governor in modern Nigeria.

Nnamani in a Twitter thread on Wednesday, August 10, said he would vote for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, in the 2023 election but spent time campaigning for Tinubu instead.

The PDP senator hailed Tinubu but said his vote is “covered by the umbrella per my party, PDP and our candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Both Tinubu and Nnamani served as governors of Lagos and Enugu State respectively from 1999 to 2007.

He praised the APC presidential candidate for the reforms in the administration of criminal justice, education, healthcare and employment of non-indigenes under his watch as Lagos governor.

Nnamani also noted that Tinubu had the best mentorship system in the country. “I had cause to engage with him on jobs for Enugu spouses. In the Education Sector he introduced Tutor General and raised the bar for earning by teachers,” Nnamani wrote.

“He left a lasting legacy of hardwork in Lagos State in infrastructure (roads and housing). “When Bola Ahmed Tinubu was governor, Lagos state’s IGR rose from 600 million Naira per month to over 8 billion Naira per month. He had an impressive track record as a governor.

“His state contributed more than 30% to our country’s GDP, accounted for more than 65% of industrial investment in Nigeria, 80% of its international trade, and collected more than 60% of the country’s value-added tax.

“In the area of human capacity, his mentorship was first class and his mentees have spread out and like little acorns, many have become giant oak trees in Nigeria’s political firmaments.”
