Niger state secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Barrister Mohammed Liman, has explained that President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Abubakar Sani Bello were endorsed for second term by the state chapter of the party due to their credible performances, especially in areas of security.
Liman stated this yesterday in a press briefing in Minna to throw more light on issues about the endorsement of the President and the governor at a rally last weekend.
He said President Buhari and Governor Bello had no rivals “when it comes to issues of delivery of dividends of democracy.”
Liman added that there was no other candidate capable of beating the records of President Buhari and Governor Bello, and appealed to members to give support to their candidatures in 2019.
He said the endorsement of the governor to run for second term in 2019 “can only been waved aside if there is another candidate that has performed more in terms of execution of people oriented projects.”
According to him, the people of Niger state especially the members of APC have called on Buhari and Governor Bello to run in 2019 in recognition of their immense contribution to the upliftment of citizens during the first tenure in office.
He assured the new members of the party of equal opportunity with the old members to aspire to any position of their choices, adding that “we will accommodate every member without discrimination.”
Liman said the PDP was trying to save its face after suffering from humiliating defection of members to APC by branding the defectors as moles.
He said APC “has only shown high profile defectors,” adding that not all of them were on parade for the reception organised for them on Saturday.
