Imo state Governor, Hope Uzodimma has revealed that 2,000 Southeast businessmen have supported the presidential bid of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, with the sum of N1 billion.


Uzodimma stated this on Thursday at the town hall meeting between Tinubu and business leaders in the region.


The Director of Media and Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Council, Mr Bayo Onanuga, stated this in a statement issued Thursday said membership of the group was drawn from the five states of the region.


Uzodinma said: “I am happy to say our people are fully in support of our Presidential candidate who has come to share his vision and plan for Nigeria and South East today.


“To support this aspiration the sum of N1billion naira has been raised by 2000 business owners across the South East states.”


Also, the spokesman for the group, Emeka Mgbudem, said the members contributed N500,000 each because they believe in Tinubu after reading his Action Plan for Nigeria.


He noted that where an Ibo man puts his money, he puts his heart.


Mgbudem however urged Tinubu to remove the numerous checkpoints on the roads in the region and also build the roads linking the state capitals in the region.


Responding, Tinubu pledged to introduce technology in the clearing of goods at the ports that will render unnecessary checkpoints on the roads.


He also promised to run a government where all Nigerians are treated equally.
