APC members must not relent in winning 2019- President Buhari

Aanya Igomu, Abuja


Members of Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC must not be complacent in their efforts to win the 2019 General Election in the country.

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari stated this at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja when he submitted his forms to get the Party’s ticket to run for a second term in office.

It would be recalled that a group known as the Nigeria Consolidation Ambassadors Network purchased the 45 million naira Expression of Interest and Nomination form for the President.

He appreciated them for purchasing the form for him.

President Buhari reiterated his commitment to serve the country.

“Fellow party members, I am taking this step with all humility, sense of responsibility and unquestionable desire to serve and protect the interest of all Nigerians.

“I am very grateful to those dozens of organisations who have teamed together and contributed funds to purchase these forms, I assure them and rest of Nigerians that if nominated, and if elected,I shall continue to serve you to the best of my abilities.

“Let me today, appeal to party members not to be complacent but to prepare, strategize and win 2019 elections.

“We must not allow those who brought the country to its knees from 1999 to 2015 to come and take us back,” President Buhari said.

It is worthy of note that so far, the President is the only presidential aspirant in the APC.
