APC Campaign Council to members: Let’s celebrate after guber elections
NEWS DIGEST–The APC Presidential Campaign Council has reminded Nigerians and members of the party that it was yet celebration time as the governorship and state assembly election was equally important to the party as the President would need majority of states to be able to successfully implement his programmes for the country
The council said the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari and National Assembly members was only a step to actualising good governance in the country, stressing with majority of states coming under the control of the party, the developmental efforts of the President would be implemented without hitches.
Director Field Operations Directorate of the Council, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu who spoke at a ‘thank you’ reception for members of the directorate, held in Abuja Friday told all those who have made sacrifice for the success of the party to return to the field and ensure total victory for the party in the governorship elections.
Ribadu said “let us be very proud of ourselves. We did something that money cannot buy. We did it honestly and only God can testify to that. We didn’t invite people to even come and look at it, no. The best human being is one that will do good thing without necessarily waiting for people to take note.
“Honestly, be proud of yourselves, genuinely! And you will see the reward of it when it will come. No good work can go unrewarded. One way or the other, it will come. It may not be today, it may not be tomorrow in the morning, but certainly it is going to come.
“We will continue to be happy for the next four years because we have done something that is going to be good for our country. We have re-elected a good man. Buhari is a good man. He is genuine. He is a fair gentleman. He is honest. He will protect our resources and will not allow bad people to cheat us and steal from our own commonwealth. He will not! And that is what we want in a leader.
“He will not go and sell Nigeria. He will not sell whatever that we have. He will not sit with anybody to plot evil or do bad thing. He will not. There was never a day or a minute that Buhari sat down and tell us, as his own campaign council, to go and do bad things. Never!
“He refused to allow even the traditional way of politicians taking advantage of what they have. He refused. He refused to talk to the law enforcement agencies. He refused to interfere with INEC. He said let us go and meet the people, lets sell our own product, lets tell Nigerians what we have, and if they want to buy, let them take it. It is not about money or intimidation, we would give Nigerians free opportunity and chance to decide and they decided.
“The elections are not over yet. We still have one important election waiting for us. We just got one, presidential and National Assembly. We have another one coming, which are the gubernatorial and state assemblies. It is a very important election for the party. I want to appeal to all of us, let us take it equally very important. We have already done a wonderful job and we are capable of doing that again.
“The work we are doing is a continuation of supporting President Muhammadu Buhari because he would need a party that has majority of states in Nigeria. He would need more governors so that he can carry on with his work and implement the policies of our party.
“The governors would also require our own state assembly members. Governance is about team work. I therefore appeal to us, let us go back and continue with this work. It is not yet time to rest until it is over.”
