President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed not to be distracted by the opposition
The President said 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.
In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, President Buhari said the opposition cannot distract his administration from the good work it is doing for the benefit and development of Nigeria.
‘‘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”, he said on Thursday.
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.’’
The leader of the delegation and Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, Governor Rochas Okorocha in his remarks, commended the President for his great efforts in the keeping the nation together through visionary leadership.
He said that President Buhari had remained focused and unshaken by situations and circumstances, ‘‘it shows that your administration is approved by God.’’
Governor Okorocha was accompanied by the Governors of Katsina, Aminu Masari, Kebbi, Abubakar Bagudu, Kano, Abdullahi Ganduje, and Niger States, Abubakar Sani Bello.
