An ex-governor of Abia state and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu has stated the Buhari Administration saved Nigeria from extinction by confronting the Boko Haram Insurgency.
Kalu said that the APC deserved a second term because of Buhari’s efforts adding that the President had done well in improving the security architecture of the country. In his words;
“When Boko Haram was bombing churches, I told people that they will extend to mosques. If not for the way Buhari confronted Boko Haram and provided weapons for the military, Nigeria would not be here.
“Everything happening in the ruling party is obtainable in other advanced democracies. I don’t see anything different from what is happening in the APC and what happens in other advanced democracies. In every democracy, there are disagreements and agreements, after all, we are not born of the same father and mother”, he said.
Orji called on Nigerians to disregard the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, saying that it contributed to the country’s biggest problems. He said that they would not win in 2019.
“PDP will find it difficult to return to power; not the party that looted public funds, it is going to be difficult. The PDP has not shown the right reason why they should return to power because going back to power means returning to power to open our Central Bank and continue the looting” he said.
