The President-elect General Muhammadu Buhari has urged All Progressives Congress (APC) supporters across the country to come out massively and vote the party’s governorship and House of Assembly candidates in next weekend’s second round of elections.
In a statement issued in Abuja over the weekend, General Buhari said while thanking Nigerians for voting him into office, there are still greater challenges of consolidating the previous electoral victory of the opposition party.
According to him, the election of APC Governorship and House of Assembly candidates is no less important than his own victory during the March 28 presidential election.
He explained that his election should not be treated in isolation because the APC needs to win at other levels of democratic representation across the country.
The President-elect added that for APC to govern effectively, its supporters should also elect the party’s candidates in the Governorship and House of Assembly elections on April 11.
General Buhari used the opportunity to condole the families of his supporters who lost their lives celebrating the APC victory and wished speedy recovery to those nursing injuries.
He also called for total moral support to INEC to enable it improve on its previously impressive performance, despite logistical challenges and other unforeseen hiccups.
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
