The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, General Muhammadu Buhari commended the contributions of Bola Tinubu and Bisi Akande in creating a formidable opposition party. He made the commendation at a colloquium in honour of senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the national leader of the APC.
He saidTinubu and Akande have shown exemplary leadership in creating national party. He said the merger of the various parties that transformed into APC was made possible through the efforts of Tinubu and Akande. He said many pundits never thought the merger was possible.
According to Buhari ‘we have been trying since 2005 and this time, a look at the PDP government at the centre shows that the merger would be worthwhile to save the country. He said the success of party can be undermined by people not among them. He said there was desperation already in PDP and he is confident that the APC will win the Saturday election.
He said we must decide if compassion should speak more than corruption. This is the time to believe in something more profound and in a government that is coming and that government is APC. ‘Let us all have faith.’
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
