Seyi Tinubu, the son of All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has been appointed to another chieftaincy position in Anambra state.
On Tuesday, January 24, 2023, the younger Tinubu was conferred with the Chieftaincy title of Nwannedinamba by the traditional ruler of the Mbaukwu kingdom, Igwe Peter Anukwui, in the State’s Awka South Local Government Area.
While thanking the monarch for the honor, has urged Anambra State voters to vote for his father in the upcoming February 25 general elections.
Chief Tinubu, who was also at the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Press Centre in Awka, spoke to Newsmen about his father’s presidential ambition, saying he was in the state to galvanize support for his father’s presidential ambition and to reassure the people that his father has the best interests of the state at heart.
Bola Ahmed Tinubu has the experience, tolerance and capacity to change the fortunes of Nigeria for the best.
Everyone has acknowledged that his core strength is his vision for peace, progress and economic development.
He also has a penchant for discovering, nurturing, and empowering talent. Testimonies abound across Nigeria, Igbos, Yorubas, Fulanis, Efiks, Ibibios, Hausas, and all the other tribes.
So I am appealing to Ndi-Anambra and the Igbo region at large to vote for my father because I married an Igbo lady.
