The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress ( APC), Mr John Oyegun, says God sent President Muhammadu Buhari to save Nigeria from collapse.
Oyegun spoke in Sokoto on Friday, when he declared open a three-day Retreat organized by the Kano State Chapter of the party for its officials and stakeholders on political party management.
Oyegun said:” Buhari was God-sent at the most crucial time in Nigeria’s history.
” He inherited a comatose economy and he has been strenuously working to deliver on his campaign promises centered on the economy, security and fighting corruption.
” Insurgency has been tamed, while the issues of militancy and other related security challenges were being diligently attended to by the President.”
Oyegun also said that, the president was being so ” frugal” with every kobo that accrues to the nation, saying that, the economy would soon bounce back.
The National Chairman further noted, no sane and patriotic Nigerian was pessimistic about the way Buhari was uniquely tackling corruption.
” Buhari is generally working tirelessly to make Nigeria a better place for all Nigerians,” he averred.
Oyegun stressed the need for internal democracy, as well as ensuring the supremacy of the party.
Kano Governor, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje said that, the Retreat was organized for stocktaking on the achievements, problems and charting the way forward.
Ganduje maintained that, APC in Kano was still united and indivisible.
Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, stated that, the Retreat would help keep the party on the right track.
Tambuwal said:” This is to ensure that government is properly adjusted in the interest of the common people.”
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Alhaji Kawu Sumaila, restated that, the Governors of the party were its due leaders in the states.
The Chief Whip of the House of Representatives, Alhaji Alhassan Doguwa and a Chieftain of the party in the state, Alhaji Bashir Tofa, commended the wisdom of organizing the Retreat.
The Zonal Vice Chairman of the party, North West, Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir,said that, the Retreat was the first of its kind organized by any of the state chapters of the party.
