President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed happiness to those who contested to represent the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming governorship election for not dumping the party in protest.
“I am very pleased that those of you who lost the primaries are still very much in the party.
“That you lose elections doesn’t mean you should walk away. You keep on trying. I went to the Supreme Court three times in my bid to become the President of Nigeria.
“I like your high spirit and your commitment to the party and I hope your constituencies are taking note of that.”
President Buhari spoke in Akure, Ondo state capital today at a meeting with the gubernatorial aspirants, APC elders in the state and national officers of the party.
Buhari said that the unity of the party is crucial for the outcome of next Saturday’s election.
The President, who later left for the Democracy Park in Akure for the grand finale of the Ondo APC gubernatorial rally, was accompanied to the meeting by the Senate President, APC National Chairman, several APC Governors and Ministers.
President Buhari assured Nigerians that determined, steadfast and patriotic people in the APC-led government will transform the nation’s ailing economy, which was run aground by the party that governed Nigeria for 16 years from 1999-2015.
The representative of the aspirants, Barrister Tunji Abayomi assured the President that they have resolved to deliver Ondo to APC.
“No single aspirant left the party after the primaries. Those who left the party were not party members; they returned to where they belonged.”
Also speaking, the Chairman of APC Elders Council, Ondo State, Senator Olorunnimbe Farukanmi, said that Akeredolu, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) is eminently qualified to lead the state.
“We have fielded  an experienced, informed, hardworking and capable legal practitioner to work with President Buhari to carry out massive industrial development, job creation, eradication of poverty and massive economic improvement in the nation.” [myad]
