Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mohammadu Buhari says not only his party has been clamouring for change, but also all Nigerians.
Buhari said this on Saturday, at a dinner meeting with Abuja Private Sector Forum in Abuja. He noted that every Nigerian had been affected negatively by the bad system of government of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP). He asserted that the worst hit was the business community.
“I am glad to state that desire for change in Nigeria today is not just an All Progressives Congress (APC) party affair but has turned into a national movement underpinned by a National Agenda of arresting the drift and promoting the unity and development of our country. This desire for change has been embraced by all and sundry from all over the country.
“I am sure you are all concerned about the general deterioration in all sectors of the Nigerian society, in particular the business environment which has been negatively affected by mismanagement, profligacy, bad governance, corruption and above all pervasive insecurity in our land and therefore has not been able to advance the course of doing business in our country,” the former head of state said.
He also assured the community that if elected the next president of Nigeria at the polls this Saturday, insecurity would be history in Nigeria and victims of insurgency would be rehabilitated.
“If by the grace of God I am elected President, in the next Saturday’s election, the security and stability of our nation, which have been threatened in recent times, more than at any time since the Civil War, shall be properly addressed as a number one priority by enhancing the capacity of security agencies to safeguard lives and property.
“We shall decisively bring the Boko Haram insurgency to an end and promote lasting peace and stability in all the nooks and crannies of our nation. We would ensure that the victims of the insurgency are adequately rehabilitated and supported to restore their means of livelihood.”
Buhari also pledged to review the Public Private Partnership (PPP) framework and make it more result oriented.
