Buhari Assures Nigerians Again

All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Gen. Muhammadu Buhari yesterday assured Nigerians of better days ahead, promising to fight insurgency, unemployment, corruption and improve electricity – if voted into power next month.

Gen. Buhari, who addressed teeming supporters of the APC, who had been at the Osogbo Township Stadium venue of the rally since 10.00 am, said Nigerians do not deserve many of its challenges.

At the rally were Gen. Buhari’s wife, Aisha, APC National Chairman Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola, his wife, Sherifat, and deputy Mrs. Grace Titi Laoye-Tomori, Rivers State Governor  Rotimi Amaechi, former interim national chairman of the party Chief Adebisi Akande, former Ekiti State Governor Niyi Adebayo, and Kayode Fayemi, National Vice Chairman Segun Oni, former Osun State governors Senator Isiaka Adeleke and  Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, among other dignitaries.

Arriving at the stadium around 5.00 pm, Gen. Buhari expressed gratitude to the residents for their massive turnout and patience.

He said: “Our business in government is security of life and property; massive employment of the youths through agricultural sector and ensure that the country is corruption free.

“So, I am asking you to ensure that you collect your Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs); cast your vote for the party of your choice and ensure that you stand by your vote. This is the only thing to do for the country to move forward.”

Aregbesola said: “Obasanjo gave us Goodluck but he turned  out to  be badluck. We are hoping for better luck and God, in his infinite mercy, has presented us with Bestluck. The best luck is no other person but Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.”

According to Aregbesola, the February general election is to “liberate Nigerians from 16 years of bad governance because Nigerians are worse off under the PDP-led Federal Government.”

Aregbesola, who noted that Osun state is a stronghold of the APC, advised the people as lovers of Nigeria to ensure that they vote out PDP.

He also faulted Vice President Namadi Sambo’s comment that the federal allocation coming to Osun State in the last few months had not been reduced at the PDP presidential Campign rally in Osogbo on Tuesday. Aregbesola described Sambo as “a serial liar.”

Odigie-Oyegun urged the people to repeat the feat recorded in 2011 general election in the state where the Action Congress of Nigeria (AC N) swept the poll. The AC N merged with the Congress for Progressive Change, the All Nigerian Peoples Party and the All Progressive Grand Alliance to form the APC.

Odigie-Oyegun said that a vote for APC is a vote against bad governance, corruption and insecurity.

He described Buhari “as a man of courage, man of principle; somebody who can see where others cannot see and a man whose passion and attention are channelled to the ills of the country.”

The former Governor of Osun State, who is also the former National Secretary of PDP, but now in APC, Prince Oyinlola said that a vote for Gen. Buhari and Osinbajo is the way out left for Nigerians in the next political dispensation.

Oyinlola called on religious leaders and traditional rulers to pray for successful election adding that the country needs change.

Akande, said a vote for the APC with Gen. Buhari as its standard bearer is a vote for good governance.

The Director-General, APC Presidential Campaign Committee, Amaechi, urged the people to vote out those he described as thieves, adding that the PDP government has mismanaged the nation’s resources.
