The All Progressives Congress (APC) has told Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari needs more than four years to fully implement that vision he has for the country.
Bolaji Abdullahi said re-election victory would give the president enough time to see his vision through.
During an appearance on Channels Television hours after the president’s announcement on Monday, Abdullahi said the president deserves the opportunity to consolidate on the success of his first term.
He said, “What I believe as a member of the party is that the work that Mr President has started a little over three years ago is so fundamental to the development of this country that he needs the opportunity to build on that and to consolidate on it.
“I think the framers of our constitution know that four years cannot be enough to achieve the full realisation of all that government tries to achieve. I think it is in the interest of Nigeria that we allow the work that has started in the last four years to continue.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has brought something to this country that is different, and what he has brought to this country that is different is that his avowed commitment to ‘fight against corruption’ is so fundamental that sometimes we lose the understanding of what it means.”
President Buhari had disclosed his decision to contest for a second term as the nation’s leader is an answer to the calls by Nigerians to remain in office.
