President Buhari yesterday in Daura said the combined efforts of defectors and their supporters in the opposition will not distract his administration from the good work it is doing for the benefit and development of Nigeria.
He stressed that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has the full understanding of Nigeria’s challenges and is encouraged by the support of Nigerians in addressing them. The President spoke at a lunch with some APC Governors accompanied by some members of the National and State assemblies and commissioners.
‘‘We are always encouraged when all our constituents are happy with the work we are doing and our genuine efforts to make sure that what we campaigned for in 2015 is still very much in our minds and we have not lost focus. In terms of security, economy and the fight against corruption we have maintained focus. Even the opposition with all their resources cannot fault our identification of Nigeria’s priorities and the efforts being made to better them. We will continue to do what we ought to do in the leadership position God has placed us and we thank the constituents for the support,’’ he said.
On the defections within the major political parties, the President reiterated his earlier message to them: ‘‘for those who have decided to change camp for whatever reason, we wish them good luck.’’
