Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, has promised the people of Anambra that he will address the state’s erosion problem in the same way that he “caged” the Atlantic Ocean surge in Lagos State.
WITHIN NIGERIA reports that Eko Atlantic City in Lagos is made up of ten districts spread across a reclaimed land area of approximately 10 square kilometers (3.9 square miles).
It was Tinubu’s pet project while he was governor of the state, but it was driven to completion by his successor, Babatunde Fashola.
Tinubu said during a presidential campaign rally in Awka, Anambra state’s capital, on Tuesday that if elected, he would make Anambra the country’s industrial hub.

You know me, I am the city boy of Lagos; I caged Atlantic ocean in Lagos, the way I handled the Atlantic ocean in Lagos, I will handle erosion menace in Anambra State. We will make value of your property. We will create jobs for our Youths, we will make Anambra State an industrial City. We will create better jobs for our Youths and also make the state more resourceful.
Tinubu also slammed the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Presidential candidate, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, calling him a “lie, lie.”
He also enjoined the electorate to reject his Labour Party counterpart, Mr Peter Obi, as according to him, “Peter will deny his campaign promises as the biblical Peter did three times.”
“Don’t mind those coming here to lie to you. When they bring their lies come, tell them na lie lie. For Peter Obi, you remember how Peter in the bible denied Jesus three times before cock crow, na like that he go deny his campaign promises…” he stated.
