President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday told members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, not to be disturbed by the recent turn of defections, assuring them that God will flush out "the bad eggs" from the party.
Femi Adesina, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, quoted the President as saying this at a campaign rally for Gumau Lawal Yahaya, the APC candidate in the Bauchi South senatorial District bye-election.
In a statement issued to journalists, Adesina quoted President Buhari to have said, “God will continue to fish out the bad eggs among us."
President Buhari also promised the Bauchi people that he has not forgotten their campaign promises to them and his administration is working hard to fulfil them.
The President also implored the people to trust his administration as they are working in their interest.
“The work we are doing is because of God, our country and you. I want to inform you that the knowledge we have garnered over the years, we won’t allow you to be cheated.
“Like we promised, what will determine a good future for the country are security, strong economy and to stop corruption.
“We campaigned on these things, you voted for us and we will never forget.”
“I want you to trust us in what our administration is trying to achieve. All we are doing is because of God, because of the nation and you,” he said.
