The Director-General of the Presidential Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Ameachi, yesterday, while speaking at the inauguration of the council in Abuja, said the cup of President Goodluck Jonathan was full and he must be voted out.
“We must agree that President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP have had their cup filled by themselves and that the society wants them out,” he said.
“Fortunately for us, we have a wonderful candidate. There is a saying in Ikwere that when a woman is too fine, you say, see how ugly she is. Because you don’t have anything else to abuse the woman with. So, we have a wonderful candidate to sell. Please, join us to sell the candidate.
Also speaking, Buhari’s running mate, Professor Yemi Osinbajo expressed optimism that the APC would be victorious at the polls. He asserted that the wind of change would blow Jonathan out of Aso Rock.
“We want to thank you for all the work, time and resources that you have contributed to this effort so far. The wind of change is blowing in our nation. No one has ever been able to stop the wind. No one can stop the wind. Come February 14, that wind will blow into the government in Nigeria General Mohammadu Buhari and the APC government and the same wind will blow out the present government of President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP.
“The wind of change will blow in prosperity and security for this country at large. All of these we desire and we believe that the Almighty God will do it and we pray that all of us will be alive to witness it. Amen,” Osinbajo prayed.
The party’s first interim national chairman, Chief Bisi Akande also said that from all indications, Buhari would be sworn in come May 29.
“On behalf of the presidential campaign council, I am supposed to give a response but while listening to our presidential candidate, we can see that he has a dream and the dream is very bold and expansive. The dream suggests transparently, that by May 29, this year, he is going to become the President of Nigeria. On behalf of the presidential campaign council, we accept the nomination into this council,” Akande said.
