Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Aliyu Wamakko, on Saturday said only the All Progressives Congress (APC) was capable of salvaging Nigeria from the security challenge and myriad of problems bedevilling it.
Wamakko made the assertion in Sokoto, while addressing party supporters, shortly after his return from Saudi Arabia where he had performed the lesser Hajj. According to him, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)-led Federal Government had failed in securing the lives of Nigerians.
The governor said Nigerians were in dire need of a people-oriented government that would tackle poverty, insecurity and improve their living conditions.
Wamakko averred that the APC presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, has what it takes to rescue Nigeria from the security challenge ravaging it.
“The APC presidential candidate has what it takes and the requisite experience to salvage Nigeria from the security challenge and myriad of problems bedeviling it,” Wamakko said.
The governor maintained that APC was built on the principles of equity and justice and was determined to restore the lost glory of Nigeria, if given the mandate in the forthcoming elections. He urged supporters of the APC in the state to conduct themselves peacefully during the electioneering campaigns.
Wamakko said they could do so by avoiding provocative statements against political opponents during rallies in the state. He therefore, called on the people of the state to vote for the APC at all levels in the forthcoming elections to achieve the desired positive change.
