The director-general of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Organisation Governor, Chubuike Amaechi, has assured that the APC government will bring positive change to the process of governance in Nigeria.
Amaechi, who spoke to journalists at the national headquarters of APC in Abuja Tuesday, said the party would work very hard towards rebuilding the country.
He said the APC would be magnanimous in victory because the challenges are much.
“We will be magnanimous in victory because the challenges are much. It is not only about celebration of victory, it is about seriousness of governance and we must show the different between us and the current government. If we say there was incompetence, we must show competence,” he said.
Adding: “If we say there was corruption, we must show that we will not be corrupt. If we say that people were denied of their basic right, we must protect their rights. If we say there was impunity, we must govern by the rule of law, and once we show that Nigerians will see the different between us and the current government.
“Confront corruption, confront the reality of the fact that Nigerians are hungry, that they don’t go to market as Nigerians do, they have the kind of fund and can eat the kind of food they want and Nigerians are hungry, to let Nigerians know that Boko Haram was not about religion alone but there was poverty and hunger and we have to deal with education and the issue of unemployment in the North and also in the south, and to also make people realise that religion is not an issue in Nigeria.”
Also speaking, APC spokesman Mr. Lai Mohammed, attributed the party’s victory to Buhari, saying “Buhari’s strong personality, character and integrity, his anti-corruption stance for which he has been known for so many years now, helped to make this victory easier for us.
“We would have lost woefully. Buhari made our victory very easy. He is a major factor in the land mark victory. It has never happened that an incumbent is defeated in a national election.”
