The achievements of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in just over three years in office are enough for Nigerians to reelect President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term in office.
Speakers at the Presidential Campaign rally of the Party in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria made this assertion while reeling out the successes of the President Muhammadu Buhari led government.
The national leader of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu took recourse back to history even as he lamented the departure of many manufacturing companies and other businesses from Nigeria, attributing their departure to the mismanagement of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party while they were in government.
He emphasised the fact that the Buhari government is committed to addressing the many challenges facing the very poor and low-income earners across the country.
“The poor and low-income earners must share the privileges of Nigeria’s wealth, their children must be educated.
“We say we must improve the standard of education, we must improve infrastructure; that is the only way we can create jobs”.
Bola Tinubu also criticised attempts by some foreign powers to influence the electoral process in Nigeria.
He called on all foreign missions in the country that will be monitoring the elections to do so without any form of interference.
“I want to sympathise with our friends and foreign observers, you are welcome but do your work and be objective.
“This is our Democracy, we will not tolerate undue interference in Africa’s Largest Democracy,” Tinubu said.
National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomole described the party as a movement committed to serving the Nigerians masses.
Comrade Oshiomole referred to the continuous development and growth in Lagos state as an illustration of what the ordinary Nigerian stands to benefit if president Muhammadu Buhari is reelected on Feb.
“The Lagos example shows that there is nothing wrong with this country, the problem is the quality of leadership, therefore in this campaign, we cannot fail to emphasise the issue of character.
“President Buhari is the only Nigerian President no British Prime Minister can call a thief, this is the only President that President Trump of America acknowledged is fighting corruption and this is the only President that the Archbishop of Canterbury acknowledged as one African leader who stands out to be counted on the side of the People”.
In his short remark at the rally, President Buhari vowed to continue to fulfil all his electoral promises premised on three major areas which are security, the economy and fighting corruption.
He promised to hold to account all those vested with responsibility in running the affairs of the nation.
“Whoever is given responsibility must account for it, if that is not done, we will eventually get hold of them, take away whatever they might have stolen and get them in prison, this is our duty and responsibility,” he said.
