Tinubu Will Consolidate On The Progress We Have Made, Says Buhari
“We Have Degraded Boko Haram Activities”
President Muhammadu Buhari has finally joined All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaigns.
Today, the President appealed to voters to vote for his party’s candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, his running mate, Kashim Shettima, Governor Mai Mala Buni and all other flag bearers of the party in the forthcoming general elections, pointing out that if the APC candidates are elected, they will consolidate on the progress so far made by his administration.
One of such achievements, he said, is: degradation of the activities of Boko Haram insurgents.
Buhari said these while addressing APC supporters at the party’s rally in Damaturu, the Yobe State capital.
He said “electing Tinubu and other APC flag bearers will not only facilitate and consolidate on the progress so far made but ensure uninterrupted implementation of people oriented policies and programmes” laid down by his administration.
According to him, his administration has succeeded in degrading the activities of Boko Haram insurgents.
Buhari’s comment came on Tuesday during an APC presidential campaign rally at the August 27 Stadium in Damaturu, Yobe State.
The President’s Adviser on Media, Femi Adesina, in a statement, said Buhari told them that “a vote for Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, would guarantee the sustenance of progress made in the security, economy and education sectors of the country”.
He also told them that his government “has been victorious against terrorists in the North-East region, saying that the APC government is further energised to defeat whoever threatens Nigeria’s unity.
“The President, who addressed the mammoth crowd in Hausa language, recounted how Boko Haram inflicted damage on the people, their property and the economy, before their decimation by Nigeria Armed Forces and security agencies,” the statement further read.
