National chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun, says President Muhammadu Buhari is working hard to make things better for Nigerians.
He appealed to Nigerians to give Buhari the needed support to enjoy dividends of democracy.
Oyegun spoke in Uyo on Saturday while flagging off the APC local government election campaign in Akwa Ibom.
The exercise is slated for December 2.
“Your president is working hard to turn things around for better. APC needs people of vision, people with passion to bring about a new Nigeria,” he said.
“Our government is poised to reposition Nigeria on the path of progress by sweeping away corruption and the evil of the past.”
Oyegun added that he was overwhelmed by the crowd at the rally ground, describing it as an indication that the Akwa Ibom people were ready to embrace change.
Oyegun, at the occasion, formally received defectors from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led by Sen. Nelson Effiong, representing Akwa Ibom South Senatorial District.
He described Effiong as “a gentleman; a man of vision and integrity who could see the future”.
The national chairman commended the new members for their readiness to help APC deliver its promises to all Nigerians.
