The All Progressives Congress (APC) has stated that the Buhari administration was not desperate for a second term but is instead focused on delivering the promises made to the people and has, therefore, urged Nigerians to exercise patience for a better country.
The party disclosed this in a series of tweets via its official Twitter page @APCNigeria, spurring Nigerians to keep believing and supporting President Buhari’s administration.
The Tweets in succession read: “Please don’t lose hope yet. Great food takes time and special ingredients to cook. One thing is sure, is now better positioned to succeed
“We understand times are very hard, dear Nnamdi. Govt doing everything humanly possible to make things better. We’re out of recession already
“There are lots of signs. Our appeal is that you make time to learn about various govt policies and ongoing projects. Thanks for your support.
“This government and party are not desperate for a 2nd term. Our focus is to get your support to continue delivering on our promises.
“Recession don’t just occur… It takes time to happen. In same vein, its exit is felt gradually. We encourage you to continue working hard.
“Slander cannot destroy an honest man… when the flood recedes the rock is there… #TheBuhariWeKnow.”
Since the All Progressives Congress (APC) has stated that the Presidency ticket for 2019 has been zoned to the North, some politicians like Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state and Northerner Sule Lamido have openly declared their ambition to run in 2019 but incumbent President, Muhammadu Buhari has not declared if he will run for a second term after the current term expires in 2019. There are indications from within the APC party that the President will be given the right of first refusal for the Party’s Presidential ticket in 2019.
