“We call on President Mohammadu Buhari to remain focused; he should not be distracted, because he has a mighty load upon his shoulders. He has every reason to make the people of Nigeria proud.
“They gave him massive support in 2015 that brought him into office, so he owes Nigerians enormous responsibility to ensure that he governs with fear of God and love of the people, and with Justice and equity.
“APGA knows that he has the capacity to change the face of this country, he has started very well despite the challenges he is facing. My prayer is that God will give him with the desired wisdom to carry on with the sustainable development that his government is pursuing”, he said.

“He has a date with history and destiny, if he continues this way and produces the best Presidential election result his name will be written in gold. I urge him not to pander to any emotionality or any threat, nobody will hurt him, and God will be with him. If he remains justifiable, focused, definitely he will achieve unprecedented result in 2019 elections”, Oye said.
