Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari at a political rally in Awka, Anambra State, said his government would revitalise the Nigerian economy, if elected in next February election. Buhari promised also to end insecurity in the country.
He spoke at the Emmaus House, Awka, where he addressed party faithful and citizens of the state. Creating stable power supply and boosting investment opportunities in southeast cities, like Onitsha and Nnewi, were some of his promises to the people of the state.
Governor Rochas Okorocha, who was part of the Buhari team to the state, rebutted allegation that Buhari would islamise the country, if voted into power.
Okorocha said, “Buhari was once a military general and Head of State. He had decree and power. If he didn’t do it then, is it now that we are in a democracy that he will Islamise Nigeria?”
Other party bigwigs at the rally were former Anambra State Governor, Senator Chris Ngige; Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi; the National Chairman of APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun; former Abia State Governor, Chief Ogbonnaya Onu; and former Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Segun Oni. The team paid a visit to the Eze Uzu of Awka, Obi Gibson Nwosu, and the Anglican Bishop of Awka, Rt. Rev. Alex Ibezim, who presented Buhari with a bible.
