President Muhammadu Buhari has unveiled the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council in the State House, Abuja.
Speaking at the inauguration, President Buhari said electing Tinubu would consolidate the achievements of his administration.
”It would be disastrous to allow a situation that will lead to the reversal of the progress our country has made,” the President said.
“Let me add that I joyfully accept the position of the chairman of the campaign council we are unveiling today.
”Our candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is too well known for his capacity and can-do spirit. He stands tall in his track records 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.
”This election is even more important than the election of 2015 that brought us into power. The cost of losing the gains our country has made is much more than the need to stop the haemorrhage that led to our coming together nearly nine years ago.
”I want to charge every member to put in all their efforts during the next four and half months of campaign to ensure we record a resounding victory in all our elections nationwide. The future of this country is safer in our hands.”
Highlighting the achievements of the APC-led administration, President Buhari noted that under his watch, Nigeria’s security personnel are better equipped and motivated.
He added that the exploits of the Nigerian Armed Forces in the battlefield have led to massive and successive operational successes in the quest to secure the country and provide adequate protection for lives and property of all citizens.
”The efforts of our men and women in the armed forces over the last years are beginning to yield positive outcomes. We are gradually taking back our country from foreign-inspired bandits, kidnappers, and terrorists in the northeast and northwest and other parts of our country.
The APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, in his welcome address, said with the formal inauguration of the PCC, the party was set to crush all opposition on the way to its victory during the election next year.
Meanwhile, at the inauguration of the PCC, President Buhari will also unveil the action plan for the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima.
