He said that the organisation would run issue-based campaign across the south-west, which had its hope and strength in the APC.
“The south-west is very unique and significant in this transition, and those who care know that the region has never had it so good like this.
“APC is our hope and strength in the south-west. We are going to kick-start our campaign very soon and it is going to be whirlwind,” he said.
Oke said that the Buhari administration in the country had in the last three and a half years laid solid foundation for the building of a super structure.
He said that the efforts of the Buhari administration had secured the confidence of the international community as well as investment for Nigeria.
“The damage of the past is not what can be repaired overnight. Buhari inherited a system that is decadent. There was total decay in infrastructure, psyche and orientation.
“Today, we are fixing the economy; it may not be clearly seen, but the economy is growing. Buhari had since assumption of office been laying solid foundation for national growth and development.
“The nation has gained the confidence of international communities with these efforts. This is why he deserves our support to lead Nigeria to the next level,” Oke said.
He said that successive administrations in the country lacked integrity until the assumption of Buhari, whose integrity is internationally recognized.
