He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to her, she can only call on supporters of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu to focus on issues-based campaigns, rather than criticising and castigating the candidates of other political parties.
She added that the advice is necessary to complement the promise made by Buhari during the 2022 UN General Assembly to ensure that the 2023 general elections would be violence-free and credible.
Her words, “Our party should lead by example by conducting a violent-free sensitisation, campaigns and elections just as the President had vowed at the UN General Assembly, where he promised the world to conduct free, fair and credible elections. So, as members of the APC and Nigerians, we should help him to realise that mandate.”
“We must refrain from bringing down any character of persons of our country. It is not the best way to go because at the end of the day, when the elections are over, what you have said during the electioneering campaigns will be used to judge your country, not our party.”
“When a leader emerges, he emerges for the country, not for the party. We must be able to work harmoniously so that we can be able to deliver the next leader for our country.”
“Let’s join hands and work for the Africa and Nigeria we all desire to have. So, let us go out and make sure we discuss issue-based campaigns.”
“This administration has done its best so far and I encourage the party to be able to speak up on these achievements and advocate for peace. It is good to build on the gains of this administration.”
“I encourage us to shun violence and embrace a peaceful campaign in line with His Excellency President Muhammadu Buhari’s pledge to conduct a peaceful election and to uphold the integrity, vision and legacy of the APC.”
