The All Progressives Congress says President Muhammadu Buhari has already achieved in 3 weeks of governance, what Goodluck Jonathan failed to do in 6 years as President.
The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Lai Mohammed, released a statement, saying that the Peoples Democratic Party-led Federal Government could not get the assistance of world powers to help Nigeria in fighting terrorism.
The ruling party also accused the PDP-led Federal Government of politicising the fight against terrorism.
The APC said many countries were beginning to respect Nigeria again, stating that Buhari has been able to restore Nigeria’s integrity.
The statement read:
“Within three weeks of President Buhari’s inauguration, he has done what the PDP government could not do in six years: Invigorate the fight against Boko Haram by rallying a regional and global front against the terror group.
Today, the United States has pledged $5 million to the fight against Boko Haram, in addition to other material support. This is apart from the support that has been pledged by the G-7 to strengthen Nigeria’s efforts to quell the insurgency.
Thanks to President Buhari’s shuttle diplomacy, the Multi-National Joint Task Force that the PDP government could not bring together for all of six years is ready to deploy more soldiers next month, while the President has ordered the release of $21m to facilitate the establishment of the headquarters of the force in N’Djamena, Chad.”
Since assuming office about three weeks ago, President Buhari has visited Chad, Niger, Germany and South Africa, winning support and friends for Nigeria all over again and returning the country to the comity of respected nations.
Those who were put off by the PDP government’s resort to politicising the fight against Boko Haram – even as the insurgents grew stronger – are now joining President Buhari to battle the terrorists. In no distant future, the results of his tireless efforts will begin to show.”
On the domestic front, President Buhari has been handling pressing issues far away from the klieg light, and his efforts to assemble a first-class team to implement his change mantra, which he is personally driving, are continuing apace.
“We in the APC are sure most unbiased Nigerians are very proud of President Buhari and the vigour he has shown in governance, the kind of vigour we did not see in the immediate past administration that was presided over by a far younger man.”
