The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) General Muhammadu Buhari has thanked Nigerians for having confidence in him to right the several wrongs bedevilling the country.
General Buhari, who spoke through a press statement signed by the Director of Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation (APCPCO), Mallam Garba Shehu on Thursday, said the huge reception his campaign trails have received in all the states visited across the country thus far indicates how desperately Nigerians are yearning for change.
The statement reads: “This is to appreciate the people of this great country for the wide acceptance to vote for change in the coming election.
“The issues of corruption, insecurity, lies, weak economy among several atrocities and damage that have been done to the country are enough reasons for change.
“The saying that you can fool the people sometime, but you can’t fool the people all the time is applicable here.
“After nearly 16 years of democracy, what we have today is unacceptable: our youths are roaming the streets with no job and poverty visible everywhere; the missing $20 billion oil money, the missing Chibok girls, the ill-equipped military to fight insurgency, corruption in high places, lack of vision and clueless regime of governance are not acceptable to Nigerians. These are more than enough reasons to fire up the vortex of change in the minds of our people.
“I appreciate the trust and confidence on me. Our country shall move forward again. The country is tired of try and error leadership that is imbued with absolute corruption. Let your vote count because it is the only instrument we have to fight for the change we so earnestly desire.”
