Akpabio made the claim in Ibadan during the inauguration of the Oyo state and South-West coordinators of the Presidential Support Committee, PSC.
Akpabio, who was governor of Akwa Ibom state under the People’s Democratic Party [PDP] 2007/2015, is the national coordinator of the PSC, a support group for the re-election of President Buhari and all APC candidates in the country.
According to the former minority leader in the senate, the PSC had volunteered to give Mr. Buhari no fewer than 10 million votes, having found in him a leader with commitment and dedication to bringing about the desired change in the polity.
He said: “We are at various wards and local government, moving on daily basis, working for the re-election of Buhari, Osinbajo and APC. Since campaign has started, God has guaranteed victory for APC and President Buhari in the 2019 general elections.
“We are already winning because we are the champions. This is because we have seen a man who wants to bring change. We have seen a man who has brought back respect for the country and its people. Opposition may say whatever they want to say, but I believe in transitional leadership, represented by Buhari,” he said.
Senator Akpabio urged the people and residents of the state and the South-West to continue to work for the continued progress of the country, calling on them to vote en mass for APC candidates in the forthcoming elections.
Akin Odunsi, PSC deputy national coordinator (South), said the fate of the opposition in the country would be sealed on February 16.
Odunsi claimed Nigerians would unanimously vote to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari.
“It remains few days to the D-Day that we are going to re-elect Muhammadu Buhari and VP Yemi Osinbajo as our president and vice president, respectively. By the grace of God, here in the South West, we are committed to the integrity and vision of President Buhari, ably supported by his vice, Osinbajo.
“In spite of all challenges created by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for 16 years, we are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We must not allow the looters back to our treasury. They are desperate, but we shall overcome them,” he said.
Julius Samani, senior special assistant (Political Matters) to the president, said Nigerians love Mr. Buhari and Osinbajo due to their transparency, integrity and simple lifestyle. He commended the president for his fight against insecurity and corruption, urging APC members in the zone not to give in to intimidation and character assassination. (NAN)
