The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Lagos State has hailed the combination of Maj. Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) and a former Attorney General of Lagos State, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), as presidential candidate and running mate respectively of the APC, saying it will inspire a social change in the country, especially in the area of fighting corruption should they win the 2015 presidential election.
The APC in a statement by its Lagos publicity secretary, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, said the two men had impressive track records that would endear them to Nigerians.
The statement read in part, “The change train that will end the harrowing Peoples Democratic Party reign of corruption and ineptitude is now complete. It charges all Nigerians to work to ensure that the 2015 elections herald the needed change Nigerians have been yearning for by rallying round the Buhari/Osinbajo ticket.
“Coming exactly a week after the completion of the spectacular APC presidential primaries in Lagos, the choice of Osinbajo reflects the demand of Nigerians for a credible, untainted, committed and competent team that will be trusted to end the reign of mediocrity and corruption that has wrecked Nigeria for 16 horrible years.
“Prof. Osinbajo is a deep intellectual, a revered Christian pastor, a revered professor of law, a redoubtable lawyer and a technocrat who compliments the stellar records of General Buhari”.
