The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, assured President Muhammadu Buhari that the party’s campaign council has accepted the assignment given to it by the president and would work for the country.
“We accept President Buhari’s Assignment”, Tinubu said in a statement by his Media Officer, Mr Tunde Rahman in Lagos, noting that the council would not let President Buhari down.
Tinubu also the Co-Chairman of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council, said that letting Buhari down would also let down the nation.
He said he had, therefore, rallied members of the campaign council with the Minister of Transport, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, as Director-General for the task ahead.
He noted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should not be allowed to return to power and “return to the days where they ruled the nation like overlords”.
“I think I can speak for all members of the campaign council that we accept the assignments given by the President with devotion and a firm commitment to perform to our utmost, individually and collectively on the tasks given.
“It is a great honor and responsibility he has given us. We dare not let him down because doing so would also let down the nation.
“This election concerns more than two competing personalities and political parties. It is a contest between two different visions for the country and the futures these visions portend.
“The APC seeks a better Nigeria by reforming our institutions of governance that these institutions may better implement policies engendering dynamic economy development.
“We seek not only growth but also a fair and just allocation to all segments of society of the harvest of our national endeavors.
“Let no Nigerian be forever trapped in poverty and despair. Let all Nigerians be given the genuine opportunity to realise their full potential and contribute to this nation and their own lives as much as their talents and willpower permits of them.
“We build a Nigeria where government leads the nation but does not rule over the people,” he said.
