The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress
(APC), President Muhammadu Buhari, has assured Nigerians that he would continue
to promote national unity.
President Buhari who spoke yesterday in Warri, Delta State,
at the flag off of his presidential campaign in the state, assured that his
administration will not go back on its campaign promises to the state, insisting
that he will always promote security in the region.
He beckoned on the people to vote for him and other
candidates of the APC in the coming general poll.
He was received at the Osubi airport by Governor Ifeanyi
Okowa and was introduced to chieftains of the APC and others at the airport
and later the governor departed to attend to other state matters.
President Buhari and chieftains of his party visited the Ovie
of Uvwie kingdom and the Olu of Warri, Ogiame Ikenwoli.
Meanwhile, when the President visited Benin City, Edo State,
he said “I want to remind you of what this administration has been doing based
on the promises we made when we were looking for your votes in 2015. We will
like you to reflect and I want to assure you that we have certainly made
progress on security; it was not the same way it used to be in the South East
that it is now.
“It is not the same even in the Niger Delta. We have raised
peace. On the economy, we have encouraged farmers. We told the Ministry of
Agriculture and Rural Development and the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, they
gave soft loans to the farmers and we succeeded in virtually having food
security and we are saving hundreds of millions of dollars not even naira by
not importing food products. I congratulate Nigerians for that because they
decided to go back to the land.”
