www.odogwublog.com reports that Wife of President Goodluck Jonathan will storm Onitsha this
morning for a mother of all campaign to woo the women folks to vote her husband during Saturday’s presidential election.
Coordinator of the women supporters group, Senator Joy Emodi , a former presidential aide announced this yesterday in Awka.
Emodi said the campaign rally for women will attract all groups of women supporting the re-election bid of President Jonathan from the 21 local government areas of the state and the 177 communities assuring that Jonathan  has already won the presidential poll.
Meanwhile, the Presidential standard bearer of the All Pro­gressives Congress (APC), Major Gen Muham­madu Buhari (retd), will storm the commercial city of Onitsha for a town hall meeting with the Organized Private Sector in the South-East tomorrow.
The meeting which is being convened by the APC Presiden­tial Campaign Council, Anam­bra State, is aimed at addressing some critical policy issues bor­dering on business and industry in the Southeast and its strategic importance to Nigeria.
While disclosing this yes­terday to newsmen in Awka, the Anambra State capital the chairman, Presidential Cam­paign Council for Anambra State, Barrister Chima Okafor, said that the event was to show­case Buhari’s policy thrust on industrial sector where the Igbo race predominates.
His words: “For the purpose of educating our people from the five Southeast states on the economic agenda of General Muhamadu Buhari, we have planned this event in the com­mercial town of Onitsha in order to ensure that our candi­date bares his mind on how he intends to restore the manufac­turing capacity and the industri­al glory of the Southeast region of Nigeria.”
“We want the business­men and industrialists who have been bearing the brunt of poor infrastructure, inse­curity, poor micro and macro economic policies and the rapid drop in the value of the Naira as against the Dollar to come and engage General Buhari and see how his policies will transform the Southeast region into the tiger of Africa. We have reached out to the captains of industry because as creators of economic value, they are essen­tial in the change promise of the APC.”
Also speaking on the meet­ing, the Director of Media and Publicity for the APC, Presi­dential Campaign Council , Anambra State, Rt. Hon Afam Obi, said, “At this point in time when power supply has become an issue, where industries run on diesel 24 hours everyday and are either operating on low prof­its or have closed shop, sending hundreds of thousands into un­employment and despondency, where our infrastructure is poor and cannot meet the 21st cen­tury needs of industrialization in our clime, there is therefore the need for the incoming govern­ment and the organized private sector here to rub minds on how best both can support each other for the betterment of the ordi­nary Nigerian.
General Buhari understands this and is quite worried that most of our industries are pres­ently lying comatose, while our business activities are hampered due to the depreciating value of the Naira, which has made nec­essary this town hall meeting.”
