Former Minister of Foreign Affairs and chairman of the opposition Merger Committee (now defunct), Chief Tom Ikimi, has paid glowing tribute to General Muhammadu Buhari’s leadership qualities, especially his integrity and anti-corruption stance, saying that he is the one Nigerians have been waiting for.
Ikimi, who spoke yesterday during a meeting of leaders and elders of All Progressives Congress (APC) at the Ladi Kwali Hall, Sheraton Hotel and Towers, Abuja, recalled how Buhari restored discipline in the citizenry when he ruled as a military head of state.
“This time round, he would declare war against corruption. With his integrity and disciplinarian attitude, General Buhari is the leader Nigerians have been waiting for,” said Ikimi.
While enjoining party loyalists to forget about their old parties and work hard to ensure the success of APC, Ikimi maintained that “There is no going back to ACN, CPC or ANPP. We can’t go back anymore; we should forget our former parties; we can’t go back anymore; this is a merger, not an alliance.”
