APC: “We ll Improve Living Standard of Nigerians, If Elected into Office


As Muhammadu Buhari passes the halfway mark in his corner-to-corner tour of Nigeria, the fit and healthy presidential candidate and the core campaign team for the All Progressives Congress (APC) touched down in Sokoto State. He created a large groundswell of genuine emotion as the crowd gathered the Trade Fair Complex in their thousands to watch him declare his candidacy.

Prof Yemi Osinbajo, tapped to be the vice president; the Honourable Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal; and national leader of the party, Chief John Oyegun were some of the team present on this leg of the journey.

They were joined by the incumbent Governor of Sokoto, Alhaji Aliyu Wammako, to pay a courtesy visit to the palace of the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, who gladly received the entourage.

The delegation then proceeded to the Trade Fair Complex where the rally held. Speaking on the personality of the party’s candidate, Oyegun said, “Buhari means security…he runs a government that respects every Nigerian, for which every Nigerian life is held sacred—where our girls, daughters and mothers lives are important to him.”
Chants of “sai mai gaskiya!” (by the truthful one we stand) filled the air when Buhari took to the stage to address the enthusiastic crowd, who at last got their chance to hear him speak.

An invigorated Buhari reaffirmed his commitment to provide security, improve education, wipe out corruption and stabilise the economy in order to improve standards of living if duly elected in as the president in the 14 February general election. The APC delegation team then proceeded to Kebbi State.
