The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), on Friday declared the future of Nigeria is safer in the hands of the All Progressives Congress.
This is as Buhari said the APC-led government has managed to make Nigeria stable, laying a solid foundation for progressive growth.
This was made known in a statement signed by the president’s spokesperson, Femi Adesina.
Buhari stated this despite the unfavourable circumstances of global economic downturns, the COVID-19 pandemic and very low international oil prices ,resulting in low revenue.
The President, who stated this at the unveiling of the Presidential Campaign Council and the action plan of the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, pledged to be at the forefront of electing the former Lagos State governor as his successor.
He noted that electing Tinubu would consolidate the achievements of his administration as the presidential candidate had the capacity, visionary leadership and track record to do more.
He said, ”It would be disastrous to allow a situation that will lead to the reversal of the progress our country has made. Let me add that I joyfully accept the position of the chairman of the campaign council we are unveiling today.
”Our candidate, Asiwaju Tinubu is too well known for his capacity and can-do spirit. He stands tall in his track record as a democrat, a champion of the rule of law, a man at home in every part of our country and a truly visionary leader. All you need to do is think of Lagos in 1999 and 2022.
”I, therefore, want to assure all party members and supporters of our government that I will be at the forefront of this campaign.
