A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chief Lanre Razak has assured Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari’s second tenure will be better than his first term because he will consolidate on his past achievements.

Chief Razak who was a former Commissioner for Public Transportation in Lagos State thanked Nigerians for voting Buhari and APC for a second term, adding that the President’s victory was a reflection of his performance in the last four years and the confidence Nigerians reposed in him as a man of integrity and action.

While commending Professor Yakubu Mahmood, INEC Chairman for conducting a free, fair and credible election, the Balogun of Epe, said despite the challenges faced by the ruling APC-led Federal government, as a result of 16 years of PDP mis-governance and corruption, the Buhari government has been able to transform the country better than his predecessor in the last four years, especially in the areas of infrastructure, agriculture, railway project, security of lives and properties, including fighting corruption.

He advised the presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to accept defeat, rescind his decision to challenge Buhari’s victory in the law court and cooperate with the government in moving the country forward.

On the forthcoming March 9 governorship election, Chief Razak, a member of the Lagos State Governor Advisory Council (GAC) urged Lagosians to turn out enmasse and vote for the APC governorship candidate in Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, stressing that other contenders in the race have nothing to offer.
