The All Progressives Congress (APC) is the party that has got the confidence of Nigerians and this has been shown by the recently held by-elections across the country, says the presidency.
The 'verdict' was given in a statement by Malam Garba Shehu, a senior aide to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity.
In a statement he released in Abuja on Sunday, December 6, the presidential spokesperson said the APC is the party chosen by Nigerians.
”We do not take this confidence of the people for granted and we will not fail them.
”Nigerians who appreciate the efforts of the administration in making life better for all citizens, especially under an economy facing the severest test from the global coronavirus pandemic will not be disappointed."
In the statement reported by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Shehu thanked Nigerians for trusting in the Buhari administration.
”We equally thank the Interim management committee of the party under the leadership of Mai Mala Buni, the governor of Yobe, and the Progressive Governors Forum under Governor Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi state.
”We also thank all our governors, parliamentarians, state, local government and ward level APC chapters and the entire ranks of the membership for this brave and impressionable performance.”
He said President Buhari was excited over the outcome of the exercise.
He said the president urged members of the party to continue to uphold the spirit of hard work, unity, progress, cooperation that form the bedrock of these victories.
