A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State and state co-ordinator of the Buhari Campaign Organization, Chief James Ocholi-SAN has said that the former head of state would salvage the country if given the mandate in the coming political dispensation.
Inaugurating the campaign committee in Lokoja, Chief Ocholi pointed out that the country needed a positive change after 15 years of bad governance, saying a Buhari Presidency would turn around the fortunes of the nation.
He noted that the APC was poised to dislodge the PDP from power so as to rescue the nation from backwardness, corruption, maladministration and insecurity, adding that Nigeria under General Buhari would witness accelerated development.
According to him, Buhari would fight with vigour, those problems that have retarded the growth of the nation, saying the former head of state would put the country on sound economic pedestal through purposeful leadership.
He stressed that considering his military background Buhari has all it takes to tackle the problems of insecurity confronting the nation, even as he maintained that education at all levels would be accorded top priority by the APC led government.
Chief Ocholi equally assured that the APC administration was poised to ‘strengthen and empower our weak institutions’ like police, armed forces, civil services, judiciary, electoral umpire among others, to enable them discharge their constitutional duties impartially, rather than ‘being wings of the PDP’.
He described General Buhari as an incorruptible personality with vast experience required in tackling the economic, political and security problems confronting the country, saying such a man of integrity should be saddled with the responsibility of leading the nation at this critical moment of her history.
The state co-ordinator therefore charged the members of the committee to work assiduously in ensuring that General Buhari do not only emerge as the APC standard bearer but win the coming general elections in the country.
