President Muhammadu Buhari has promised not to stop arresting corrupt politicians if re-elected in the 2019 elections.
Speaking on Friday in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state during the flag-off of his presidential campaigns in the South-South region, the President said he has delivered his pre-2015 campaign promises in the areas of security, economy and anti-graft fight.
“I will not stop arresting corrupt politicians. Very soon, I will inform Nigerians of funds recovered from looters. I will ensure that I recover Nigeria and no Nigerian will ever regret voting me and the APC.
“We will not go back on the Single Treasury Account, it is meant to ensure transparency, because every federal government money that goes in there can easily be traced,” he said.
He, however, said tackling unemployment remained his main challenge, but that the government is working to tackle the problem.
Also speaking, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, said re-electing President Buhari in 2019 will give Nigerians hope and lead to the diversification of the economy.
Tinubu said that Buhari is strongly determined to redirect governance, adding that the APC government will continue to support Akwa Ibom in the renewal of sustainable development.
Similarly, the Director General of Buhari Campaign Organisation and minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi said the APC did not promise to make one Naira equivalent to $1, and reduce the price of petrol when it was campaigning in 2015 to win the presidential election.
Also, the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole said character is what will form the basis of the party’s campaign.
At the event, Oshiomole handed over the party’s flag to the gubernatorial candidates representing Akwa Ibom, Rivers, Delta and Cross River states.
Earlier, the state chairman of the APC in Akwa Ibom state, Mr Ini Okopido, said during his welcome speech that the party will deliver the state’s vote for President in 2019.
