Chimaroke Nnamani has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, is the most successful governor amongst the class of 1999-2007 set when Nigeria returned to democracy.
Tinubu was governor of Lagos state, while Nnamani was governor of Enugu state.
PDP Senator Chimaroke Nnamani said APC presidential candidate Tinubu will make Nigeria work for all.
The senator representing Enugu East in the National Assembly added that governors from the class of 1999 may still be the nation’s top system builders and political reformers.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Friday, October 28, Nnamani, who is a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said Tinubu will make Nigeria work if he becomes the nation’s president.
“Tinubu will replicate the successes in Lagos across the country and has the capacity to revamp the economy and make Nigeria work for all,” he maintained.
Tinubu made the most progress The PDP senator said the class of 1999 Governors had it rough in the beginning because most of them inherited a state that had all of its sectors in poor conditions due to several years of military rule.
“All we had was pure joy in our electorates’ hearts because they had a democratically elected governor.
“From health to education to the economy and security, Lagos state and many other states were in turmoil as a result of years of military rule but Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu made the most progress out of all of us in reforms of various sectors, with Enugu State coming in second.
“This large progress came as a result of assembling 23 best brains in Lagos state to examine each sector of Lagos economy and provide a workable solution to its unique challenges,” he said.
Tinubu’s achievements as Lagos state governor Senator Nnamani went on to reel out Tinubu’s achievements in different sectors in a statement he also posted on Twitter.
“The Asiwaju-led administration was tasked with figuring out how to add 5,768 more classrooms to the existing ones, saying that he rose to the challenges by erecting new elementary, junior secondary and senior secondary schools in Lagos between 1999 and 2007 to address this issue.
“Asiwaju-led government consequently embarked on human capital development to guarantee that pupils received the finest education possible with a series of staff training and development programs in various courses, seminars, and workshops,” he said.
