The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has rated President Muhammadu Buhari high on his economic policies.
The party said the results of Buhari’s economic initiatives would soon begin to yield results in stabilising the economy and create a better living standard for Nigerians.
Briefing newsmen in Abuja, yesterday, APGA Chairman, Victor Ike Oye, said what Nigerians must do is to give moral and spiritual support to the president, by praying for him, adding that he deserves eight years tenure, as provided for by the Constitution.
Speaking further, Oye regretted that some Nigerians spend their time criticising the president and noted that politics is not a do-or-die affair, just as he blamed desperate politicians for political violence during elections. He charged Nigerians to learn how to cooperate with those in leadership position in the country.
“It is by this understanding that the unity and peace of the country can be promoted, irrespective of race and religion,” he said.
The party chairman further emphasised the need for Nigerians to offer valuable advice to the president, to enable him succeed in office.
On the 2019 general election, Oye said the party believes that the election was generally free, fair and credible, and noted that even the international community adjudged the process as such.
He said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was not given such benefit of the doubts by Nigerians to conduct a credible general elections.
“We have our own misgivings, but, in our own thinking, the outcome of the election was fair. Nobody gave INEC the chance to perform the little it has done. INEC showed immeasurable courage by ensuring that the elections went the way they did, especially the presidential elections. In our own estimation, the election was free and fair, and APGA is happy with the outcome.”
