President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State commenced the South-South All Progressives Congress presidential rally with a warning that there would be no more handouts.
Addressing a crowd at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, venue of the rally, President Buhari said Nigeria would have to struggle in the years ahead as there are no more handouts.
He recalled that in 2015, his campaign was fundamentally based on three points of security, corruption and building the economy and challenged critics to re-examine his administration’s successes in these key areas.
The President said Nigeria would eventually win the war against insurgency in the North-East, and pledged that his administration would improve the economy and tackle unemployment.
Also speaking, the Director General, Buhari Campaign Organisation, Rotimi Amaechi, said, about this time four years ago, the APC was criss-crossing the country begging Nigerians to change the leadership of the country, with a promise to improve the economy to enhance security and fight corruption, noting that these promises have largely been achieved.
The APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, presented the party’s flag to four governorship candidates of the APC in the South-South: Obong Nsima Ekere of Akwa Ibom State, Senator John Owan Enoh of Cross River, Magnus Abe of Rivers and Great Ogboru of Delta State at the rally.
The APC National Vice Chairman, South-South, Hilliard Etta, enumerated Buhari’s achievements to include a revolution in agriculture, feeding school children, building the Second Niger Bridge, building the Calabar-Itu road, and increasing the salary of the police.
Etta therefore prayed that Buhari should defeat the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, in 2019.
