A social political group,the APC National Integrity Movement (ANIM), has assured Nigerians that they will never regret supporting and voting for the president Elect of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and his running mate, Senator, Kashim Shettima.
The National leader of the group, Honourable, Abubakar Sadiq Fakai, made their position known while briefing journalists in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, on the fallout of the February 25, 2023 presidential and National Assembly elections.
While Commend President Muhammadu Buhari for providing the atmosphere and platform for the exercise of a free, fair transparent,and credible election, Honourable. Fakai noted that the president’s action has once again restored the confidence of Nigerians in the country’s electoral system and process.
“We can all remember, earlier this year, Mr President gave some stern warnings, charging all security agencies to maintain a high sense of professionalism and to desist from behaviour that would bring disrepute.
“In his New Year’s message, he urged Nigerians to resist attempts by politicians to disrupt the 2023 general elections.
“We saw all these words in full expression, and you have once again allowed democracy to joyfully thrive in your time.“We want to say thank you, Mr President.”
Fakai also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for insisting on making the exercise free, transparent and credible, and also for being resilient, withstanding every form of thuggery and ensuring a free flow of the electoral process.
“To our very own National leader and President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and our vibrant Vice President-elect, Senator,Kashim Shettima, we are very proud of you for the display of your hardwork, doggedness and strong belief towards the actualization of the ‘Renewed Hope’ message you made as a direct pointer of your campaign and which has now set our nation,Nigeria, in the right direction.
“We believe strongly in your unique servant-leadership qualities, which had always set you apart over the years.
“Now, knowing fully well that the “Giant of Africa” is set to rise again and you’re both bringing in to engage the best of your leadership qualities in directing the affairs of this nation in the right direction, this will make Nigeria to experience the desired sporadic and rooted growth and development in all ramifications,” he added.
The national leader of the group, who thanked Nigerians for the trust they have in the party and for voting for the APC in the presidential election, also beckoned on all registered voters to come in their numbers again to vote for the party in the March 11, 2023 gubernatorial and State House of Assembly elections.
Honorable, Fakai used the medium to encourage the opposition parties to accept defeat and join them in this progressive train of APC in moving this nation forward.
