President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN in the October 10, 2020 governorship election will win clearly and be returned for second term.
The President has therefore urged the leaders and members of the party to work diligently and ensure fairness in the electoral processes.
A statement issued by the spokesman to the President, Mallam Garba Shehu in Abuja, Friday after the President presented the party’s flag to the candidate at the Presidential Villa pointed out that the victory had been made easier.
The President said that the reconciliation process in the state branch of the party had provided a solid ground for an easier clear victory for the candidate than he achieved in his first term.
While assuring Akeredolu of the party’s full support, the President said a peaceful and fair election that reflects the will of the people should be upper most, urging adherence to the regulations of the Independent National Electoral Commission and protocols of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.
President Buhari noted that the party’s mechanism for resolving differences was most effective, and would be sustained to strengthen relationships, and project the objectives of the party as people-focused and development oriented.
The APC candidate was presented to the President by the party’s Caretaker Committee Chairman, Mai Mala Buni, who is also the Governor of Yobe State.
