President Muhammadu Buhari and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019 has warned candidates for next year’s general elections not to set the country ablaze, saying we have no other country than Nigeria.
The president who spoke on sunday during the launching of his campaign manual and a document tagged next level at the State House Villa, Abuja,said Nigeria is faced with a choice to keep building a new Nigeria – making a break from its tainted past which favoured an opportunistic few.
“I am not unmindful that the National Assembly and the presidential campaign starts today (yesterday), I will implore candidates to go about the campaigns peacefully and decently. We have no other country, let us not set it ablaze because of politics,” he said.
The occasion was attended by the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole, Secretary to the Government of the Federation Boss Mustapha and other top government officials.
The wife of the president, Aisha, was also at the event attended by governors of Katsina, Kebbi, Kogi, Katsina and Nasarawa states.
Noting that the next four years will be quite significant for the country, Buhari said “Nigeria is faced with a choice to keep building a new Nigeria – making a break from its tainted past which favoured an opportunistic few.
“Our choices will shape us – our economic security and our future prosperity. Nigeria, more than ever before, needs a stable and people-focused government to move the agenda for our country forward.”
Urging Nigerians to join them to the next level of a prosperous, strong and stable Nigeria, Buhari said they are committed to deepening the work they started in the country.
