Oyegun: No sane Nigerian would oppose Buhari’s anti-corruption war.

John Oyegun, national chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), on Friday said no “sane” Nigerian will express reservation over the way the government of President Muhammadu Buhari is “uniquely” tackling corruption.

Speaking while declaring open a three-day retreat which the Kano state chapter of the APC organised for its officials, Oyegun said God sent Buhari at a period when Nigeria was on the verge of collapse.

“God sent Buhari at the most crucial time in Nigeria’s history,” he said.

“He inherited a comatose economy and he has been strenuously working to deliver on his campaign promises centred on the economy, security and fighting corruption.

“Insurgency has been tamed, while the issues of militancy and other related security challenges were being diligently attended to by the president.”

Expressing optimisim that the economy would soon bounce back, Oyegun commended the president for being so “frugal” with every kobo that accrued to the nation.

“Buhari is generally working tirelessly to make Nigeria a better place for all Nigerians,” he said.

Oyegun emphasised the need for internal democracy in the party.

Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano, said the retreat was organised for “stocktaking on the achievements, problems and to chart the way forward”.

He said the APC in Kano was still united and indivisible.

Aminu Tambuwal, governor of Sokoto, said the retreat would help to keep the party on the right track.

“This is to ensure that government is properly adjusted in the interest of the common people,” he said.
