Buhari didn’t promise rosy change – APC tells Nigerians, endorses President for second term

Elders in the All Progressives Congress in Plateau State on Friday
said President Muhammadu Buhari never promised Nigerians a rosy

The elders, under the aegis of APC Elders Advisory Council of Plateau
State, said when Buhari took over governance, he admitted that
Nigerians would face challenges in the short term and then rejoice in
the long run.

Speaking in Jos, the state capital, Chairman of APC elders, Capt.
Joseph Din, also endorsed Buhari for a second term.

Din said the President has done very well in tackling insecurity,
corruption and poverty; while he has also "improved the economy by
battling recession, brought youth empowerment and created jobs."

According to Din, "We hereby unanimously endorse President Muhammadu
Buhari as President of Nigeria come 2019 and Rt. Hon. Simon Bako
Lalong as governor of Plateau State come 2019.

"We all know that this country was heading into economic recession
already when Buhari took over in 2015.

"It was largely due to the falling prices of crude oil in the
international market and the long-term mismanagement of the economy by
previous governments.

"Nevertheless, this government has been able to steer us away from
recession within the shortest possible time.

"When President Buhari was taking over, he did not promise Nigerians
that it was going to be rosy all through. He admitted that Nigerians
were going to face challenges in the short term and then rejoice for a
long time.

"Due to his economic policies, we have started seeing the difference.
For instance, Nigeria produced 15 million metric tonnes of rice in
2017 alone. We are the highest exporter of yams the world over and we
are the largest producer of cassava the world over. This has reduced
the country's food importation bill.

"We in the Plateau State APC Elders Advisory Council call on President
Muhammadu Buhari Governor Simon Bako Lalong to run for a second term
in 2019 in order to complete the good work they have started."
