Ahead of the official commencement of the campaign, the Secretary general, All Progressives Congress (APC) Campaign Council, James Faleke, has asserted that the APC presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will turn around Nigeria’s economy from import dependent to production based.
Faleke made this assertion when he received members of the APC National Integrity Movement (ANIM) who visited him on Friday in Abuja.
He expressed the strong belief that APC would win the 2023 presidential election, owing to the belief that the Tinubu/Shettima project was a project for all APC groups and party loyalists across the country.
Faleke pointed out that the council would put in place an effective reward system to ensure that all grassroots mobilisers for the party were adequately rewarded after the 2023 general elections.
‘For those of us that know who Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima are, you will understand that they don’t make promises they can’t fulfill.
“We understand that the country is facing some economic challenges, at the moment, but this is not peculiar to Nigeria, it is a global problem.
“We believe that if given the opportunity, a Tinubu presidency will turnaround the current economic situation for good by making it a producer nation,’ he said.
Faleke thanked the group for the visit and for pledging its loyalty to the Tinubu-Shettima APC project.
He said that appointments in the APC post-2023 government would be based on results and performance of individuals and groups.
‘I know that in one way or the other some of us are aggrieved, but I can assure you that the reward system that is coming is far super.
‘Nobody will work and will be forgotten, if you work you will reap, if you don’t work you will not reap in the next administration.
‘If you want to go into politics to benefit, you have to work for it, especially If you want to be appointed into any political offices‘ he said.
He said the APC national campaign office would be officially unveiled by President Muhammadu Buhari in September to begin the 2023 presidential campaign.
Speaking, Abubakar Saadu, leader of the group, said the members believed in the APC ideology and were ready to work and ensure its victory at the presidential poll.
According to him, in spite of challenges of insecurity and economy, the President Buhari-led APC administration has done well compared to what it met on ground in 2015 before taking over.
He said the group had concluded plans to mobilise supporters and followers across the country for the Tinubu-Shettima project.
