NAN – The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday said his administration would assemble competent team to efficiently manage the country.
Buhari said this in Port Harcourt at the inauguration of the party’s presidential campaign.
He said that the team would tackle the numerous problems confronting the nation.
“The fundamental issue facing this country is insecurity and the problem of the economy, which was being made worse by corruption.
“I assure you that we are going to finally assemble a competent team of Nigerians to efficiently manage this country.
“The damage that has been done to this country is great. The level of unemployment, the level of insecurity is intolerable.
“The damage has been done. It will take time, it will take patience, it will take support from you to make sure that we succeed when we get there.’’
Buhari commended Gov. Rotimi Amaechi for accepting to be the Director-General of the party’s presidential campaign team.
Buhari urged the people to ensure that eligible voters collected their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) to cast their ballots on election day.
The National Chairman of APC, John Oyegun, urged Nigerians to vote for the party to change the fortunes of the country.
‘”If you want electricity, if you want corruption wiped out, if you want indiscipline and insecurity wiped out, then vote for Gen. Buhari and APC in the elections,’’ he said.
Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, the Speaker, House of Representatives, commended Amaechi for choosing two members of the House, Dakuku Peterside and Asita Okorie Asita as governorship and deputy governorship candidates of the party in the state.
“I thank Gov. Amaechi for choosing my colleagues in the House as governorship and deputy governorship candidates. This is a national assembly project in Rivers State,’’ he said.
Earlier, Amaechi urged the people to collect their PVC and vote for APC candidates.
He said that the time had come for the people to demonstrate their love for the party by voting for all its candidates at all levels.
