The Minister of State, Federal Capital Territory( FCT), Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu has appealed to the residents of Abuja to give the ruling All Progressives Congress ( APC) a second chance at the forthcoming 2023 polls.
The passionate appeal which was made over the weekend at the popular Nigeria Eagle square in Abuja, during the Party’s Mega Presidential Campaign Rally may not be unconnected with the general perception that the party has not satisfied the expectations of Nigerian electorate in the almost 8 years of its administration.
The Minister who reiterated that she is quite convinced that APC deserves a second chance also noted that the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu has proven to be a man with the capacity, and has demonstrated that by the number of people he has reproduced through Systematic mentorship.
According to her, FCT residents should give him and other candidates of the party the chance to make the country better than what it had been.
She said, ” APC deserves another chance. We stand on continuity. I am standing before you to say that if APC is voted in , Nigeria will be greater, because we are building upon that which is better than what we met.
” We stand on what Buhari said that the unity of this country is not negotiable. APC as a party stands on that . So many projects have been completed, so many will be completed before the end of this administration and many others will be initiated.
” Tinubu has mentored many leaders. I have identified that one of the problem of leadership is mentorship, we want leaders who will like you to be like him.
The National Secretary of APC’s Presidential Campaign Council, Hon. James Faleke, noted that he represented the Presidential Candidate because he was involved in other engagements.
Faleke also called on Abuja residents to stand with the party during 2023 polls, urging them also to ensure that their PVCs were collected and kept intact.
