Akinwunmi Ambode, Lagos state governor, says the support Nigerians have for President Muhammadu Buhari is “unrivalled and iconic”.
According to a statement by Habib Aruna, Ambode’s chief press secretary, the governor spoke after the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential rally which held at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna on Saturday.
He said Nigerians have a choice to make between keeping Buhari in power or going back to the days of “corruption, infrastructural decay and insecurity”.
“What we saw in Kaduna was unprecedented, just look at the crowd and the way they came out in droves. The passion, the trust and support that the Nigerian people have for Buhari is unrivalled and iconic,” the statement quoted him as saying.
“People just love Buhari; they trust him because he has performed well in the last three and half years, together with the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, they have delivered on their electoral promises and what is in the APC manifesto.
“You can see for yourselves, the people have seen that President Buhari is a man of integrity that they can trust and that is why it is important that he continues. He promised change which he has fulfilled and the next level is to consolidate on that change on the policies he has introduced and implemented.
“The choice before Nigerians is simple: to go back to the days of corruption, infrastructural decay and insecurity or continue with the trajectory of infrastructural development, steady anti-corruption war and the constant fight against territorial threats. This is what the Buhari and Osinbajo ticket represents.
“We are not deterred by all the false narratives the opposition is spreading. We would rather focus on the issues and these issues are basically on how to make the lives of Nigerians better.”
