PORT HARCOURT -All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.), has all it takes to convincingly win the March 28 presidential election, the Rivers State branch of the party has said.
Rivers APC Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said in a on Monday in Port Harcourt: “Whatever doubt that might have existed in anybody’s mind about Buhari’s readiness to rescue Nigeria from the low depths to which it has been dragged by the fumbling President Goodluck Jonathan has surely been erased by the General’s acclaimed outing at the Royal Institute for International Affairs, Chatham House, London, on Thursday.
“Buhari’s speech was world-class, as readily testified by the packed audience that included British politicians, diplomats, journalists and a  cross-section of Nigerians”.
“The event’s chairman, former British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Sir Richard Gozney, aptly captured the Buhari persona when he described him as ‘a man of modesty, unusual for a Nigerian politician, and having clarity of thoughts and speech’.
The success of the well-celebrated event demonstrates the international acceptance of General Buhari as the next President of Nigeria,” he said
Rivers APC expressed happiness that Buhari used the event to assure the world of his readiness to personally lead the war against Boko Haram and to fight corruption frontally when he assumes office as Nigeria’s new President on may 29 this year.
The statement   congratulated    Buhari on his brilliant Chatham House Lecture, urging him “not to relent as we collectively work to rescue Nigeria and Nigerians from the hands of a confused, corrupt and misguided President Jonathan before he runs the country completely aground.
“If he succeeds in restoring security to Nigeria and stop the corruption that is currently pulling down our economy under the corruptive regime of President Jonathan, APC may have succeeded in its rescue mission.”
The party also congratulated the APC National Leadership for expertly packaging the Chatham House Lecture.
“We wish to reiterate that not minding the intimidation by the PDP Leadership against us in Rivers State, we are set to ensure that General Buhari does not only win Rivers State but that all the APC candidates win all the available seats in Rivers State during the March and April general elections,” Rivers APC said.
