Buhari, APC Must Succeed – Saraki
Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki yesterday reiterated the commitment of the 8th Senate to the success of President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.
Saraki spoke in Abuja when the State Chairmen of the APC from the 36 states of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) visited him.
The Senate President assured that the Senate would not disappoint Nigerians and neither would the APC senators abandon the party.
Saraki said: “I want to use this opportunity to assure you of our cooperation with the Executive arm led by our President, President Muhammadu Buhari.
“I want to reassure you that all of us APC Senators, we are committed to ensure that the APC is successful so that we can continue to win elections years and years and years and years after because of the foundation we are laying.”
He commended the party chairmen and Nigerians for their efforts and sacrifices which led to the victory of the APC in the last elections.
“It is now our responsibility to pay back so that you can sit back and say that my effort was not in vain; that those we elected made this party proud and made this country great,” he said.
He added: “I can assure you that we are committed to doing our best because you have all suffered to get us to this point and we must show the difference, the difference between APC government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We have no choice. There is no alternative. President Muhammadu Buhari must succeed and Insha Allah, he must succeed.”
